Automation rules in Media Management

- MEDIAGENIX

How to enjoy more automation when scheduling the same content in multiple formats for different channels, platforms and territories? On 22 November, WHATS’ON users from Germany, the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium came to the MEDIAGENIX HQ in Brussels to attend our Master Class on Media Management in WHATS’ON. Among many other features, this module offers the option to work with predefined segmentations or to segment automatically based on the need of every individual transmission. The module supports any number of video, audio and subtitling components, all time coded in sync. This meets the needs for more automation when scheduling the same content in multiple formats with different audio and subtitling on different channels or countries.  Any complexity is hidden from the user thanks to extensive configuration possibilities.
