MANAGE AND OPTIMIZE THE PROGRAMMING OF YOUR ANTENNA
CTS Broadcast is an on-air management software. It provides television channels with tools to optimize and simplify their daily work for the preparation of the chronological sequence of a broadcasting day. By its design, CTS Broadcast is suitable for any type of channel: generalist, thematic, local…
CTS Broadcast’s centralized database structures and secures all editorial (titles, casting, summaries…) and contractual (linear and replay rights) information relating to the programs broadcast. It also preserves the broadcasting history of the programs. This information is then used for communication purposes (EPG, press export, web publication, etc.) or transmitted to regulatory and rights collection bodies through their APIs. It also makes it possible to rigorously monitor the consumption of rights and to check compliance with broadcasting conditions when a program is included in the schedule.
CTS Broadcast offers graphical tools as well as control and validation mechanisms that improve the daily handling of the on-air programming steps. For TV channels wishing to offer a replay service, CTS Broadcast allows the automatic programming conditions of non-linear programming to be set up according to linear programming.
CTS Broadcast integrates perfectly into the technical platform of a television channel.
It communicates with MAM (Media Asset Management) to retrieve technical data associated with broadcast files, and trigger media handling and processing actions. For channels that do not have a MAM, CTS Broadcast integrates a player to check the media, time code them, and import technical information (frame-ready duration, time codes, PAD status, etc.) into its database without manual input.
CTS Broadcast transmits daily the on-air playlist to the system that controls the broadcast in real time. Post-broadcast, the software automatically retrieves the on-air log, thus certifying the real broadcast to program distributors, advertisers, and control bodies.
