VCI to support new SMPTE BXF standard


VCI Solutions, supplier of media revenue solutions for the broadcast and cable industry, announced that their new autoXe MC automation system and the next Orion business system release both support the new SMPTE S22-10 Broadcast eXchange Format (BXF).

The BXF standard provides a better way to operate facilities seamlessly, replacing many of the proprietary interfaces currently being used. It includes data elements that are common to many systems, and addresses communication, transport, and security issues. The implementation of this new standard will help accelerate and facilitate data-driven workflow processes. All systems, including traffic and automation, will be working from the same metadata, communicating dynamically.
