By Jai C.S., TMCnet Contributor
Broadcast technology company, TelVue Corporation reportedly has launched WEBUS Inside, a Web-based, multi-user video bulletin board system that can directly integrate with TelVue Princeton broadcast servers including multi-channel configurations without any additional hardware.
Company officials stated that WEBUS Inside is a software plug-in to the TelVue Princeton broadcast server line that allows hyperlocal broadcasters to create, update and feature video bulletin board messages directly on their channels and Web sites.
According to Jesse Lerman, president and chief executive officer at TelVue, said, “By integrating our WEBUS bulletin board technology into our TelVue Princeton broadcast servers on a single hardware platform, we offer hyperlocal broadcasters significant workflow and cost advantages.”
Lerman said that cost is an important factor as many stations and towns are affected by today’s challenging economic conditions. He also that by incorporating bulletin board on a true broadcast platform, a tighter timing and highly reliable video integration is offered that are typically lacking in other digital signage systems.
TelVue uses its proprietary digital media software and today’s open technologies that simplify professional broadcast equipment and workflow. So, customers enjoy a total benefit from improved programming, reduced costs and are better positioned to meet the new challenges.
The new software is desgined with certain advanced workflow features including automatic pagination and message scheduling with expiration dates, day parts, intervals (for example “on the 5s”) and emergency interrupt messages.
Additionally, company officials also said that WEBUS supports a trusted and moderated multi-user workflow as well as TelVue’s WEBLINX plug-in that allows bulletin board messages to be displayed simultaneously on a station’s or organization’s Web site.
