BroadView’s single-asset approach provides powerful metadata for all your scheduling needs
At the core of BroadView is a centralized asset library that houses all metadata and tracking needs. Within this library, a single asset can provide the required information for linear schedules, EPG, OnDemand, media operations, traffic, and sales. The asset library is completely extensible and can support the addition of any number of user or system-defined fields. All fields can be controlled via security and are searchable, filterable, editable, reportable, and exportable. Like every other field in BroadView, asset fields can be used by all other modules, from linear scheduling to OnDemand and all media operations.
BroadView provides strong rights management tools to ensure that your content obligations are being met. These help manage, validate and enforce rights across your linear channels from individual station rights to sharing station rights or complex multi-network, country, and territory rights. In the world of On-Demand and cross-platform content, Platform Rights provide the tools to track and record OnDemand commitments on a platform-by-platform basis as well as providing validation and feedback. BroadView allows for all-encompassing OnDemand schedules to be individually managed and controlled against the breadth of platforms they distribute to.
BroadView can create schedules for a single station to a network of any number of channels, regions and time zones where schedules flow seamlessly from one to another. It can manage unlimited planning channels and alternate channels for sporting and live event contingencies. Extensive validation tools and email notifications advise users of changes and issues before the schedule gets to downstream departments. Version control, live, record and “joined in progress” flags ensure that the correct version is running on the right network or platform. Learn more about OnDemand.
