The objective of this project is the development of the “Media Fleet Manager”, a system for the booking and managing of DVB-S / DVB-S2 transmissions for fix or mobile TV-uplink stations.
Key elements of the solution are:
The major benefits of the Media Fleet Manager are:
The transmission scheduler is supported by a user-friendly graphical operator interface which gives him an overview of all planned transmissions for an SNG.
The booking system communicates with the Car Manager, the control system in the SNG via SkyWAN and forwards all outstanding uplink requests to the car as soon as it arrives on site.
The journalist is automatically informed about the bookings, and the SNG equipment is automatically controlled by the Car Manager software system.
The Media Fleet Manager communicates with the Car Manager and exchanges requests and status feedback.
The project is currently in the design phase. It will reach the Final Review at the end of 2009.
The project has been completed.
