DTGs Intelligent Transfer Technology Integrates with PathfireAutomates transfers for digital file-based content (March 30, 2006)
Digital Transaction Group will be demonstrating its new Intelligent Transfer Technology integration with Pathfire at the NAB 2006 Media Show, April 24 27. DTGs Intelligent Transfer Technology automates transfers for digital file-based content. Already installed and working in television broadcast stations, the Pathfire integration is a completely automated process, no human intervention needed.
With the Xe Automation System (pronounced ?ex - ee), broadcast stations can do more with less, no longer having to devote time and resources manually dubbing syndicated programs, and manually entering timing and segment data for the programs the entire process from ingest to playout is automated. At one station, the staff was spending 16 hours a day doing it manually. After installing the Xe Intelligent Transfer Technology interface to Pathfire, those 16 hours were reclaimed, increasing staff productivity, saving time, money and resources.
The Xe Intelligent Transfer Technology manages the transfers of syndicated program content from Pathfire to a play-to-air video server and gets the metadata to generate the program segments and timing. The Xe Automation System creates the program segments and ad blocks in its SQL database server. Because Xe can handle multiple content IDs, the Xe IDs match the stations house numbers assigned by traffic. When Xe loads the channels schedule, all the programming is ready for on-air.
