Northampton, MA – Myers Information Systems – a leading developer of broadcast traffic, business, and content management software – today announced the successful implementation of a metadata delivery platform that will enable the airing of PBS content to audiences internationally. The platform was developed for PBS Distribution (PBSd), a joint venture of PBS and WGBH, Boston’s prolific public television outlet, with international rights to a significant library of public television titles. Myers will supply metadata for the programs identified by PBSd, enabling the new PBS UK service to populate its traffic and scheduling system.
“Myers’ long-standing commitment to PBS, coupled with an in-depth understanding of our operations, made the company an ideal trusted partner for this unique outreach project,” said Tom Koch, vice president of PBS Distribution. “We look forward to a successful collaboration with the Myers team as we extend our programming to new audiences overseas.” more
