Broadcasting Resource Management

Broadcasting is a highly dynamic industry that involves various types of resources (staff and equipment) to produce high quality news and entertainment. Often, multiple people with different skills and sophisticated equipment are required to create good TV. To succeed with that a high degree of planning, management and communication is necessary.

Whether it is a Newsroom or long term Feature Production it is not a trivial task. Inter dependencies and constraints for resource assignments, constantly changing Production Schedules or news that must be covered in compliance with complex Worktime Legislation result in numerous elements that are integrated into the planning puzzle.

Therefore, most Broadcasters are forced to use a proven planning solution to ensure the right resources are in the right place at the right time – every time. Also, this planning solution must be agile to support last minute changes because that is how the world is.
