Smart Air is an analytical tool to help television channels study their recent broadcasting schedule and programming policy, and it is being showcased at IBC2017.
It gives users access to extensive information on current and past broadcasts. They can view almost instantaneously a recording of a programme, its history and description, ratings, and related promotional materials or graphics.
This integrated knowledge makes it possible to cut back on routine operations and gives a clear picture of the quality of the programming.
HTS said Smart Air was built to increase workflow efficiency in analysis and planning the airtime schedule. To deal with this task, the company has combined the viewing of recorded media, linked with airtime schedule, and descriptive metadata for the programmes, announcements, graphics and ratings.
The system allows synchronised working with descriptive metadata in both text and graphical forms, and with video, audio and auxiliary data, such as subtitles.
