KUGAARUK, NUNAVUT – DECEMBER 2010: Home to approximately eight-hundred native Inuit and a handful of southerners, the municipality of Kugaaruk brushes up against the Arctic Ocean, in the far northern Nunavut Territory of Canada. It is the location of Canada’s coldest recorded wind chill (-78 degrees Celsius) and a place where the day is seldom punctuated by a rising or setting sun. It is also the location of very favorable seal hunting and a place where polar bear sightings are commonplace. In their meetings every two weeks, Kugaaruk council members rely on a conference system so that Christopher Amautinuar can translate between English and Inuktitut. Kugaaruk recently replaced an aged and problematic conference system with a new Sennheiser conference system that delivers spoken word with perfect clarity and intelligibility. more

Maine Public Broadcasting Comes Home to Myers ProTrack

myerslogo_152u_high_nov2010.jpg

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
