Chellomedia's DMC Deploys Pilat Media's IBMS Version 6
LONDON -- June 15, 2010 -- Pilat Media, the leading global supplier of business management software to the media industry, today announced that the Digital Media Centre (DMC) has expanded its deployment of the company's Integrated Broadcast Management System (IBMS) by migrating to the .NET-based IBMS version 6.
Owned by Chellomedia, the DMC is one of Europe's leading providers of channel playout services, TV distribution, and content delivery. It now operates around 40 channels under the IBMS framework and will be leveraging several version 6 features to accelerate the launch of new channels, offer its media customers Just-In-Time workflows, and ensure accurate, quality output in a tightly integrated environment incorporating multiple customers, channels, and languages.
"As we've grown our business and taken on increasingly complex workflows, IBMS has grown with us. The new features available in version 6, including the ability to customize your own workflows and reports, enable us to offer our customers improved service and quality," said Robin Kroes, vice president of operations, commercial and corporate development at the DMC. "Also, the tight integration between the IBMS media management and scheduling modules is helping us improve efficiency and reduce the cost of quality assurance, therefore driving down our own pricing. This is especially true for customers operating across Europe who require low-cost support for different languages, whether dubbing or subtitling."
IBMS supports the DMC's data and broadcast center, which provides a full range of highly integrated broadcast services for channel production, origination, and distribution. With multichannel playout, post-production, connectivity, on-demand services, and channel management, the company offers end-to-end facilities from concept to delivery, supporting almost any multilanguage, multiterritory television broadcast requirement for European and global clients.
"Chellomedia's DMC is one of Europe's most comprehensive media companies, and the input we've received from the company over the years has been instrumental in the development of our IBMS system," said Avi Engel, CEO, Pilat Media. "Clients, like the DMC, who are at the forefront of the digital media revolution are continually pushing the envelope, challenging us to devise new ways of improving and extending the ways they can do business -- a challenge we are always delighted to meet."
