Here’s a scoop on some news regarding an upcoming product announcement at NAB Show New York: Xytech will now start shipping the latest updates to its MediaPulse 2019 facilities management software for broadcasters and post-production companies.
Xytech is known for its facility management software for the broadcast, studio, media services and video transmission industries.
Several major updates to its MediaPulse product line have been made.
A key update to MediaPulse is a completely redesigned user interface. This new contextual interface conforms to the needs of each user. The new responsive UI is developed to place targeted functionality in the hands of every staff member, freelancer and vendor to create a seamless end-to-end automated workflow accessible on any device connected to the internet. Unique views are created for every user whether they use a full browser, tablet or smartphone.
The new UI also contains a unique, integrated mobile experience for smartphones. This is ideal for staff members needing to see schedules, accept assignments and actualize work hours.
Transmission Module Updates
In another major upgrade, the Transmission Module has new functionality to manage both the technical and service compatibility of connected resources whether they are PCR centric or in a video circuit. Users automatically create a technically correct booking while simultaneously ensuring the selected devices fulfill the service required. This new functionality works hand-in-hand with device monitoring capabilities to ensure operators have a single source of truth for all transmission bookings.
Personnel Manager Updates
Another key upgrade is to the Personnel Manager to include real-time counters in the scheduling view to track any entitlements, work time, available time, overtime as well as user defined classifications. The Personnel Manager rules engine is upgraded to track all parameter driver conditions, alert staff when thresholds are exceeded, compute costs and prepare timesheets. This new functionality specifically addresses the European Working Time Directive but is applicable to any labor rules.
Xytech will be exhibiting at the upcoming NAB New York 2019 from October 16-17, 2019. Located at Booth N823, Xytech will demonstrate the new features of its leading facilities management software MediaPulse.
