Etere secures the playout project for Bokeo TV in Laos, providing operational efficiency, business agility and better cost efficiency.

Etere secures the playout project for Bokeo TV in Laos. Etere was selected for its efficient and scalable ecosystem which integrates and connects multiple processes across the complete media workflow seamlessly. Etere Ecosystem provides a flexible management and enhances business continuity in the face of current and future challenges in the industry. The project includes the following features:

Etere Media Asset Management (MAM) is designed to streamline process of ingest, index, storage and retrieval of digital assets across the end-to-end media workflow. From the automatic detection of new media assets to automated ingest, quality checks and metadata association, Etere MAM orchestrates your workflows to help you simplify the management of complex tasks across the media lifecycle. With its centralised database, real-time updates and distributed architecture, Etere ensures the best returns on your media assets.

Etere T-Workflow is at the heart of the Etere Ecosystem. It is an essential component of Etere MAM that allows users to design broadcasting structures and processes which can be run automatically. A workflow is composed by multiple steps, also known as workflow actions, representing sequentially interconnected actions configured to specific criteria. Workflow actions are used for performing some of the most important operation involved in the management of media content and files. A few examples of these operations include, file quality checks, schedule check, media transfers and media transcoding. With a simple tool, you can configure specific criteria for each step of the broadcasting operations easily.

Etere does not use an external engine but instead, it uses SQL to manage the flow of information. Writing and reading data in SQL tables is the method used to process a workflow. This unique approach results in a very powerful workflow, it can start 100,000 workflows in under than one second and it creates a very robust system.

Moreover, Etere offers multi-platform support with EtereWeb, a secure web platform that allows you to perform all the main features of the PC applications on any internet browser. With a one-step authenticated login, users can perform a wide range of operations on the move. Etereweb supports multi-platform usage on tablets, laptops and even mobile phones. These include, view, modify and compare daily playlists in real time as well as search, preview, edit, download and upload of media files.

Etere Resources Management is a centralised management console that seamlessly connects media files, processes and resources for an enhanced operational efficiency and maximized profitability. It is an all-in-one framework for the management of all activities and human resources across different departments and even external sources. With the Agenda feature, it is extremely easy to create tasks, assign resources and calculate the associated costs. Not only that, it is fully integrative with Microsoft Outlook Calendar for a complete management and tracking of appointments as well. Etere's lineup of automated software tools are your best bet for operational efficiency, cost-efficiency and a streamlined management.

Etere Ingest provides a full range of ingestion options including automatic ingest, scheduled ingest and manual ingest. It is capable of ingestion from multiple feeds such as live, tape, cards and HD drives. Besides that, it incorporates advanced features including reports for operational tracking. After the ingestion of media assets, users can choose to move it to storage, assign as asset in media library, perform deletion or archive it on online storage platforms, nearline storage or deep archive systems. Etere Ecosystem's tight integration ensures a fast and easy operation without having to switch screens between the different applications.

Etere Executive Scheduling empowers broadcasters to plan their broadcast schedules with flexibility and efficiency. It enables the preparation of the schedule grid in advance based on planned placement of programs, series, promos and commercials, even prior to the acquisition of content. Etere ensures planned schedules are inter-linked with all associated licensed content, contractual commercials, imported materials and regional ad insertions. In addition, the solution is tightly integrated with Etere Automation for a seamless operation.
