Northampton, MA (December 1, 2010) – Myers Information Systems – a leading developer of broadcast traffic, business, and content management software – today announced a successful
implementation of its flagship ProTrack TV application suite at the Maine Public Broadcasting Network. As the state’s premier independent media resource, MPBN offers a world of information, ideas and cultural content to the citizens of Maine from its facilities in Bangor, Lewiston and Portland.

An early adopter of ProTrack TV beginning in 1992, MPB was compelled to switch to a more radio-centric product in 2004 to satisfy needs on the network’s audio side. “It was important for everyone to use the same system; it was easier for TV to change since they already understood the concepts,” said Gil Maxwell, senior VP and chief technology officer. “We had many reasons to want a return to ProTrack; compatibility with PBS’s Next Generation Interconnect System [automated content delivery] tipped the scales for us. The whole process was very smooth … people from Myers came on-site the week prior to help with the transition and teach our staff using real world data. They stayed to help us with last minute details and remained accessible after the transition, even calling several times to check on us. The critical piece that made it all go smoothly was the Myers training … our operators didn’t have to juggle two systems any more than necessary. They were able to start using ProTrack right away, so their training could have maximum impact.” Maxwell described it as “the smoothest major transition I’ve undertaken in years; I wish they would all go so well.” more
