X-Pert Multimedia Solutions announces that its flagship product X-Pert Playout, and respectively Channel-in-a-Box (a bundle of X-Pert Playout, X-Pert Graphics, and X-Pert Ingest), has been integrated with OnAir TV, the scheduling system of Caliope Media Software. OnAir TV is a highly automated TV scheduler that replaces the well-known manual drag & drop playlist generation process. It creates a playlist based on a set of rules and templates. OnAir TV schedules series automatically and it takes care of premieres and reruns. The software is able to fill gaps without human interaction. Once the playlist is created, it can be changed manually if needed before being exported to the X-Pert Playout. Besides the playlist scheduler, OnAir TV includes a Media Asset Management system (MAM) and an EPG generator.

“OnAir TV gives additional value to our products. Now we can guarantee a 100% automated process for every linear TV channel, without any need for any human interaction. As a result of the reduced human activity, we can ensure fewer mistakes and a more optimized process in terms of time and human resources invested,” explains Ludmil Kushinov, the CEO of X-Pert Multimedia Solutions.

“We want to make media operations more efficient, and that is why we invested our efforts in developing a user-friendly, stable, flexible, and technical advanced software,” says Norbert Deelstra, the founder of Caliope Media Software. “We are very happy to partner with X-Pert, one of the industry-leading playout platforms. By partnering we can be even more sure that the integration between OnAir TV and the X-Pert software will work flawlessly at all times. This will increase the reliability of the whole system stack and will reduce the time and effort the TV broadcasters need to spend on their software.

The customers can take advantage of the integration with OnAir TV regardless they have a perpetual licence of X-Pert Playout or X-Pert Channel-in-a-Box or rely on a subscription-based model.
