PBS Hawaii Returns To ProTrack TV
Myers, a developer on broadcast management software, announced today that PBS affiliate KHET Honolulu, owned by PBS Hawaii, is returning to Myers’ ProTrack broadcast management solution as part of a station-wide technology update.
ProTrack will be the primary user interface for PBS Hawaii to manage its broadcast content from the point of acquisition through to play-out and storage. In addition, it will provide them with a robust and easy-to-use platform to schedule, monetize, and traffic all of their distribution channels.
“As we progress with implementing a new technical facility in 2015, it is important for us to return to ProTrack given its proven workflows and strong integration capabilities,” said John Nakahira, chief engineer at PBS Hawaii.
To maintain operational continuity, Myers will provide bi-directional integration between its ProTrack solution and PBS Hawaii’s current Grass Valley automation and Masstech media enterprise systems. These multi-point interfaces will enable ProTrack to serve up actionable insight, automate multi-system workflows, and improve transparency across departments.
In addition, PBS Hawaii installed ProTrack’s ProWeb module which provides a responsive, interactive and user-friendly schedule environment to their website so viewers have real-time access to PBS Hawaii’s broadcast schedules and program metadata.
