Hollywood, FL – November 9, 2011 – ScheduALL has announced that its advanced transmission management solutions have been selected by RRsat Global Communications Network Ltd., a world-class provider of global, end-to-end, content management and distribution services to the television and radio broadcasting industries.
RRsat purchased ScheduLINK, the media and broadcast industry’s transmission management gold standard, to effectively manage and streamline global feeds, occasional-use, bandwidth and business resources. ScheduALL is the industry’s leading global provider of enterprise resource management and collaboration software.
RRsat provides comprehensive content production, management and transmission services for more than 630 TV, radio and data channels worldwide. With an integrated global satellite, fiber and Internet network, state-of-the-art teleports and playout centers, and a round-the-clock booking center for occasional use services, RRsat empowers TV and radio channel owners and multi-channel network service operators to seamlessly manage and deliver information and entertainment to viewers all over the world. With 6 teleports and a host of partner teleports, RRsat provides uplink, downlink and turnaround services to 95% of the populated globe.
Before selecting ScheduALL's industry-leading satellite transmission tools, RRsat relied on a bespoke in-house system to manage distribution and delivery of global feeds, occasional-use and bandwidth.
Over the past few years, however, RRsat’s continued global expansion meant an investment in a highly scalable, best of breed platform to accommodate the increasing volume, complexity and to cost-effectively manage the company's current and future growth. After extensive review of possible solutions for transmission and resource management, RRsat determined that ScheduALL’s suite of industry-leading technologies uniquely addressed its operational and business objectives.
"RRsat's global occasional use business has reached tens of thousands of hours per year and is growing," said Shmulik Itzhaki, Senior Director, Broadcast Sales and Occasional Services at RRsat.
"Our company provides feeds ranging from a few minutes to several hours in duration to a wide variety of customers, including one-time service, multiple feeds or regularly scheduled services, as well as immediate coverage at any time of day or night, as sports or news events unfold. With ScheduALL, RRsat can now schedule, manage and report on all our resources, assets and workflows across operations worldwide allowing us to provide better service to our customers."
"RRSAT is a recognized leader in the transmission community, with a large footprint in Asia and Europe, which are both key areas of focus for ScheduALL. We have been speaking with their leadership team for many years and are delighted to be able to serve as they continue to grow their global operation," said Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL.
"By transitioning from a bespoke system to ScheduALL’s proven platform and real-time connectivity tools, RRsat will realize greater reporting, accuracy and customer satisfaction across our broadcast and transmission community,” he continued. - Read More>>
