Xytech's MediaPulse Automates Today's Media Services

Introduction of Compass and Digital Order, iOS Apps, and New Partner Relationship (March 15, 2012)
DMN Newswire--2012-3-15--
Xytech, the global leader in facility management software for the broadcast and media services industries, has announced that major extensions and integrations of their MediaPulse Platform will be on demonstration next month at NAB 2012, in Las Vegas, NV, April 14th through the 18th.  Xytech's MediaPulse platform is a comprehensive and feature-rich resource, work order and asset management solution for broadcasters, studios, media services companies, and transmission service providers offering a full suite of scheduling, operational, and financial management tools. These tools drive automation via Fuse, the highly successful MediaPulse extension announced at NAB 2011, which provides the platform's key integration layer. 

Xytech is intensely focused on ongoing product innovation to keep their clients ahead of the changes they are facing in the dynamic landscape of today's media and entertainment industries. Their 2012 announcements address these crucial topics.

MediaPulse Compass
Navigate the federated digital supply chain with MediaPulse Compass. Compass allows clients to create Media Orders in which any service in the order may be provided by another internal department, a vendor, or a third party. By using the functionality of Compass from within the Fuse integration extension, service requests are transmitted to target systems, new orders are created, and all operations are updated in real-time.

Automatically creating Purchase Orders and managing the increasingly complex inventory of Vendors and Services, Compass speeds the entry of complicated Media Orders, drives intercompany automation and collaborations, eliminates redundant data entry, and creates an ecosystem of linked participants in the digital supply chain.

Digital Order
Fuse is introducing a major update to a flagship feature, Digital Order.  Digital Order allows clients to simplify the automation of the digital supply chain through out-of-the-box integration to all subsystems in the ecosystem. There are now over 30 automated tasks that can be performed including transcode, watermark, QC, delivery, copy, move, erase, etc. When used in conjunction with MediaPulse Compass, all participants in the media services chain can drive a truly automated, federated workflow encompassing all elements of asset tracking, operational mastery, and financial reconciliation for the first time. 

iPad and iPhone Integrations
Xytech is thrilled to offer the perfect iPad and iPhone extensions to MediaPulse. The MediaPulse App is a native iOS application allowing users to view, create, and update statuses of MediaPulse Media Orders, Operations, and Time Card records. The App also leverages the Fuse integration tool and once again demonstrates Xytech's dedication to constant technical innovation in order to solve clients' needs.

Rules Engine
The MediaPulse Rules Engine extends the configuration ability of the application stack to granular application behavior. Custom workflows now drive all notifications and personnel payroll rules through a configurable, parameter driven interface.

Signiant Featured Partnership
Xytech continues to expand important industry collaborations and partnerships.  Xytech and Signiant have announced a joint solution that makes the secure digital media transfer capabilities of the Signiant Media Manager(tm) software available from within the Xytech MediaPulse facility and operations management system.  Media companies face a difficult and costly process when attempting to integrate multiple systems for automating workflow processes, and in creating this interface, customers are offered an automated, powerful, easily implemented out-of-the-box solution for file delivery. 

Greg Dolan, Executive Vice President of Xytech, concludes, "We look forward to demonstrating these exciting new products and announcing key partnerships at NAB 2012.  Whether we are overseeing massive installations for the major studios, international broadcasters, sports networks, and global religious organizations or launching single application users of MediaPulse, we are 100% focused on our clients' needs, today and in the future. The development of Compass and Digital Order, and our relationships with our featured partners, are all a direct result of that focus. We never stop the innovation of our products or the invention of new solutions.  That is the crucial Xytech difference.   We are relentless in the pursuit of our clients' interests."
