4K and 8K OU bookings can now be made through ScheduALL Portal™ and ScheduALL Connector™
(HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - November 5, 2015) - ScheduALL, the leading global provider of intelligent resource scheduling solutions for media, broadcast and transmission businesses since 1989, will demonstrate new customer self-provisioning capabilities for 4K and 8K feeds at the Content and Communications World, featuring SATCON, conference in New York City,November 11-12. Utilizing end-to-end provisioning tools, ScheduALL Portal™ and ScheduALL Connector™, users are now able to provision multi-stream service configurations as Occasional Use (OU) bookings of any duration at any time.
Coordinating a 4K, 8K, or any other sized synchronized, multiple stream service has various specific engineering requirements to consider for the ports, cards and lines involved. Until now, this has been a manual configuration for network engineers, resulting in high costs and wasted valuable creation time. ScheduALL's self-provisioning tools Portal and Connector simplify this process down to a wizard-like series of questions, enabling providers, engineers and schedulers to make a multi-stream service with the selection of only a single source and destination port or node. Through these tools, customers can book their feeds directly, allowing engineers and schedulers to initiate a complex, multi-stream service with the selection of only a single source and destination port or node, while behind the scenes, Portal leverages all of the unrivaled power and complexity of ScheduALL's transmission scheduling and conflict resolution.
"Our large customer base of the top providers and media companies are pushing the envelope daily on multi-stream technology," says Rick Legow, ScheduALL President. "4K and 8K technologies are the future of broadcast. We are seeing a constant trend in consumers wanting better video, especially in live sports coverage. While the broadcast industry is working to adapt 4K and 8K streams regularly into their live feed, we at ScheduALL have worked to adapt our software to meet the needs of these broadcaster's demands. Through the use of our self-provisioning applications, Portal and Connector, customers can create these OU bookings in a time and cost efficient way. We are excited to see this technology expand, and plan to update our software in tandem with the growing demands of the industry."
Portal simplifies making complex bookings of OU transmission feeds in real-time, directly into a transmission provider's system. Utilizing a browser-based, user-friendly wizard for selling transmission feeds, Portal allows users to quickly make transmission bookings without requiring in-depth network expertise.
Connector takes advantage of ScheduALL's large global community of transmission inventory consumers and providers across more than 50 countries that use the ScheduALL system to manage their feeds. Connector provides a direct link between OU providers and their customers, uniting ScheduALL systems across global trading partners.
