SintecMedia—An IBC2013 Win (SatBroadcasting™—Award)

[SatNews] SintecMedia has revealed that CloudOnAir, the industry’s first all-in-one broadcast management solution designed exclusively for small broadcast channels, was selected by TVBEurope as a "Best of IBC 2013" winner and one of the most important innovations at IBC 2013.

CloudOnAir is an adapted version of OnAir, the same software used by industry leaders BBC, FOX, MediaSet, UKTV, and STAR. Focused on small and mid-size broadcasters' needs, it manages the business critical functions of broadcasting including sales, traffic, schedule, programming, promotion and billing.

According to Amos Simantov, SintecMedia EVP Sales, international broadcaster i24News is using the product, and a number of new clients signed up for CloudOnAir at IBC. He noted, "CloudOnAir can effectively become a broadcaster's remote IT Department."

“The cloud, the increasing predominance of IT-based systems, and 4K were the key trends at IBC this year. The show was packed with more than 1,400 exhibitors, many of whom had new products on display,” said Fergal Ringrose, editorial director TVBEurope. “For those who couldn’t make it to Amsterdam, or who just couldn’t get to every stand, The IBC Daily and TVBEurope picked out the most interesting innovations—particularly those that could make broadcasters’ lives easier, cheaper, and more efficient.”

CloudOnAir is Software as a Service (SaaS), providing broadcasters with application scalability and reduced hardware costs. With high-level security and privacy, easy accessibility and integration, the system maximizes the business of television while reducing total cost of ownership.
