Booth N4424 Discovery Communications has implemented BroadView Software’s OnDemand 2.0 technology for nonlinear scheduling for its U.S. networks, led by Discovery Channel, TLC and Investigation Discovery.
BroadView has worked with Discovery for the past two years to integrate and enhance the OnDemand toolset. The nonlinear project builds on an earlier successful rollout of BroadView Software’s Program Scheduling technology to optimize operations for Discovery Communications’ 13 U.S. networks.
The system’s innovative architecture features configurable workflow triggered by both process and user decisions. Users schedule on-demand events in complex scenarios with easy-to-use tools and wizards. These schedules are then connected through flexible and configurable multidimensional relationships to the various on-demand platforms. These simplify the management of multiple scheduling strategies, service types and platforms. The configuration has been designed to be fluid as the industry grows and changes.
