OVERVIEW – Managed Thematic Playout
Fully Managed Playout for Pre-recorded Television
If your programming schedules are mostly pre-recorded with minimal live broadcasts, then our Managed Thematic Playout service is for you. The service is modular, allowing you to build a flawless Playout package. Our menu of options incorporate graphics, captions (subtitles), regional opts, voice-over, ad insertion, HD/SD, +1 channels, as well as live inputs and operational models to accommodate the specific requirements of your channel.
Access to Capital
Building an in-house thematic Playout solution from the ground up requires a significant up-front investment. Instead, you need to be able to find a Managed Thematic Playout service you can trust to provide you with the most innovative and trusted technology on an operational expenditure basis.
Availability of Resources
The resources required for building a Playout center are scarce. It makes more sense to seek a fully managed Playout service that offers instant access to the fullest possible range of resources, on demand.
Equipment Support and Obsolescence
Because of the speed of Playout technology evolution, the risk of resource obsolescence looms large. Rather than having to make continued investments in new technology, Broadcasters can out-task their Playout requirements to a provider who invests on their behalf.
