xG Schedule™ recognized by TV Technology at NAB Show 2016 for design, cost efficiency and performance
Imagine Communications, empowering the media and entertainment industry through transformative innovation, has received the NewBay Best of Show Award for the recently introduced xG Schedule™, a next-generation, cloud-based scheduling and planning system for linear, on-demand and digital platforms. The award was presented on April 20th at the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas, NV, by TV Technology.
NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.
“We are honored to have been recognized by TV Technology and NewBay Media for our next-generation scheduling solution that can help dramatically increase the efficiencies of operations departments around the globe,” said Sarah Foss, VP of product management, Advertising Management Systems, Imagine Communications. “xG Schedule is a critical component of our commitment to provide broadcasters with business process solutions that possess the power and versatility to unify ad management across all linear and nonlinear platforms, including on-demand, mobile and streaming.”
The cloud-enabled xG Schedule provides broadcasters with a unique approach to viewing and optimizing inventory by simultaneously unifying and simplifying scheduling and program planning operations across the entire business. Its integrated nature enables programming teams to plan schedules across multiple linear, nonlinear, web and mobile platforms with streamlined validation against content and usage rights, as well as organizational business rules.
Introduced at CABSAT 2016 earlier this year, xG Schedule is designed for a global audience, dynamically adapting to multiple cultures and languages — including support for right-to-left (RTL) orientations. Menus, dates and times, schedules and content information automatically adjust to the selected language. Offering market-leading flexibility, xG Schedule is adaptable to the cloud, on-premises or hybrid deployment models.
“Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications,” said NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb.
