All the features that you need to manage your TV channels
Automation is key to stay competitive
Media Asset Management (MAM)
A user-friendly tool for storing all your TV assets
The library is the central storage for all your TV assets like clips, movies, documentaries, series and promo’s. All assets can be searched, filtered and sorted easily. Tools for importing and batch editing will help you to manage your library.
A clear overview of items, categories, series and all your other assets helps you to organize your assets in a logical way.
The editor is the place where you assign metadata to your items. You can also preview items in the editor, all frame accurate.
Events allow you to connect other assets like promos or commercial blocks to an item.
Soft-parting of items
It is easy to soft-part items with the editor. By parting an item into multiple virtual parts it is easy to ingest commercial blocks, SCTE markers, promo’s or other assets. This is the ideal tool to prepare items for FAST TV channels.
EPG templates for many providers
No agencies needed to handle your EPG if you use OnAir TV
EPG templates make it easy to assign correct EPG formats.
The legal section will help you to stay in compliance
In the legal section you can store the details of your contract. The planner will always enforce these legal rules. As a result, you are always sure to be in compliance.
The linear TV scheduler
Generate and manage your linear TV playlists very efficiently
The linear TV Scheduler creates playlists based on the ‘Long Term Planning’.
The ‘Long Term Planning’ is a set of templates and blocks that contains all the rules that you need to generate playlists fully automatic within a few minutes.
The result of the schedule process is a playlist which you can export to your TV play-out system of choice.
OnAir TV has integrations with play-out systems like Cinegy, Playbox, Broadstream, GrassValley, Tools On Air, TV Player, X-Pert and BCNEXXT.
OnAir TV also has a build-in EPG generator. As a result, it is easy to export the playlist to a variety of native EPG formats.
The Planning Rules
Holds the rules to automate your TV channel
The Planning Rules is the part of OnAir TV that holds all the rules that are used to generate playlists. This part takes the hard work out of the scheduling process with its built-in intelligence. It is a ‘set and forget’ module: make blocks, add rules, assign them to templates and the planner will use the result to make playlists.
The Long Tem Planning
The replacement of your Excel sheets
The long Term Planning is the replacement for clumsy Excel Sheets, PDF’s or Word documents. It will serve as the basic template for the automatic scheduling proces.
The long term planning is a collection of Templates and Blocks. A template represents a day or set of days and a blocks contain rules like Schedule a series, Insert SCTE marker, Show Logo etc. Blocks are part of one or more Templates. Assign a template to a day of the week or to special days like Christmas.
You can make as many templates as you want. Connect a Template to a day (like ‘every Monday’), a set of days (like ‘Monday to Friday’) or to a specific date (like January 1).
The building elements of the Templates are Blocks. Blocks are reusable containers that holds Scheduling Rules like:
- Start with a promo
- schedule a commercial break
- schedule a promo again
- schedule the latest world news
- end with another commercial break
You can create a block once and then reuse it multiple times in different templates, even in temp[lates for other channels.
Use ‘Commands’ to automate actions
Commands will help you to schedule perfect TV playlist
Blocks can be populated with a variety of Commands. Commands can be placed in blocks and will automate certain actions. As a sophisticated Broadcast Management System and TV Scheduling Software, OnAir TV contains a big set of commands.
Here are a few examples:
Use ‘Automation’ to perform tasks automatically
Make the system work autonomously
The ‘Automation’ module is a set of tasks that you can use to execute task at certain times or at certain events. Together with commands, you can create a ‘Set & Forget’ scheduling system.
Reruns are placeholders for TV items that have an premiere and then needs to be repeated multiple times.
An example of a Rerun is: Schedule the Saturday night movie every Saturday at 8 and repeat it Tuesday at 14:00 and Wednesday at 11:00.
Once you have made this Rerun, a placeholder will be scheduled at the indicated days and times. This placeholder will be replaced automatically by the movie that needs to be scheduled.
Airings are placeholders for items that need to be scheduled at fixed dates and times like: Schedule a movie at December 1 at 10 and schedule it again December 5 at 11.
