TV Parma acquires Etere MERP software

TV Parma has deployed an Etere MERP software solution to connect and manage all the activities and workflows of its four TV channels (TV Parma, TV Parma Shopping, TV Parma Sport and Radio Parma on TV). With Etere MERP, TV Parma now has the opportunity to manage commercial orders and planning, long-term programmes/series scheduling with rights management, invoicing and accounting, acquisition, tapeless content reception, TV scheduling, playout automation, archiving, HiRes and proxy transcoding, web integration, and video logging. TV Parma has equipped its system with Etere Air Sales, which is the core of advertising management. Etere BMS is the module for the long-term planning of licensed programmes/series and the management of the corresponding rights. The jobs done by programme and promo departments converge automatically into the playout schedule, and the playlist managers can use Etere Executive Editor to finalise the playlist. Etere Automation controls video servers, master control and an audio/video routing switcher while an Etere STMAN plug-in manages logo – crawl and graphics for all channels. TV Parma counts on Etere Ingest for both manual and automatic content capture via SDI and on Etere Tapeless Reception, an efficient and secure web-based interface for file-based uploading/downloading among various departments inside the facility (NLEs, studios, post-production, news) or external content providers. Most of TV Parma’s content is stored into disk array centralised storage. Etere Data Mover is appointed to move and transfer media files automatically and quickly. Etere Data Mover also transcodes media files among different HiRes and Proxy formats (for playout, editing, preview, cataloguing, etc.) through Etere HIRes Transcoder software or external transcoding
