EBS has launched its Pawa software solution and portfolio of Pawa EPG data services. Developed by EBS, Pawa provides a multi-platform, multi-territory, scalable solution that enables EPG data to be aggregated, restructured and delivered to any platform.
For channels and platforms to maximise EPG data for additional services like VoD and DTO, they need to adopt a clear, defined workflow. Pawa is designed to provide a solution to this problem, accommodating the full range of distribution requirements needed by broadcast professionals.
Pawa provides EPG data services for channels, platforms, DTO/VoD and TV listings. It can import listings from a variety of formats, storing them centrally in preparation for distribution. Editors can then add any additional data required for translations, or extra metadata (such as images or cast) before the listings are sent directly to multiple platforms, in the formats required. Pawa can be bought as a managed service, or used in-house, with support and training from EBS.
Keith Bedford (pictured), EBS managing director said, “The way that we consume content has changed drastically in recent years and providing data that enables viewers to discover content is key. Broadcasters and content owners have to ensure that they continue to provide high-quality, EPG data services for traditional linear services and at the same time have to adopt new working methods for VoD and DTO services. EBS has launched Pawa to provide a full portfolio of EPG data services that meets the needs of today’s modern broadcast world.”
