The Play-by-Play

The Museum Channel and Pixagility chose Harmonic’s Spectrum™ MediaDeck integrated media server running embedded Polaris™ Play channel-in-a-box automation software, under the control of a Chyro™ web based traffic system.

With this solution, the two companies were able to integrate traffic, playlist management, internal automation and media management to face the demand for media delivered across new channels and platforms.
