NAB NY 2019: Xytech Ships Recent Updates of MediaPulse Line

Xytech is showcasing several major updates to its MediaPulse product line during NAB Show New York at booth N823 in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Oct. 16–17.

A key update to MediaPulse is a completely re-designed user interface. This new contextual interface conforms to the needs of each user. The new responsive UI is developed to place targeted functionality in the hands of every staff member, freelancer and vendor to create a seamless end-to-end automated workflow accessible on any device connected to the internet. Unique views are created for every user whether they use a full browser, tablet or smartphone.

“The latest edition of MediaPulse is now available and delivers this essential contextual UI,” said Greg Dolan of Xytech. “As the first consumer-grade UI in our market, this reimagining is responsive, molds itself to any device, desktop or handheld and is available on-prem or in the Cloud.”

The new UI also contains a unique, integrated mobile experience for smartphones. This is ideal for staff members needing to see schedules, accept assignments and actualize work hours.

Transmission Module Updates
In another major upgrade, the Transmission Module has new functionality to manage both the technical and service compatibility of connected resources whether they are PCR centric or in a video circuit. Users automatically create a technically correct booking while simultaneously ensuring the selected devices fulfill the service required. This new functionality works hand-in-hand with device monitoring capabilities to ensure operators have a single source of truth for all transmission bookings.

Personnel Manager Updates
Another key upgrade is to the Personnel Manager to include real-time counters in the scheduling view to track any entitlements, work time, available time, overtime as well as user-defined classifications. The Personnel Manager rules engine is upgraded to track all parameter driver conditions, alert staff when thresholds are exceeded, compute costs and prepare timesheets. This new functionality specifically addresses the European Working Time Directive but is applicable to any labor rules.

The new user interface is available now in the 2019 version of MediaPulse.
