In the past, production companies would place event orders to media & distribution service providers through mail or phone while service providers would carry out their daily tasks from fixed setups in their control rooms, studios, or desks. Today, that kind of rigid workflow is impossible to imagine.
Today, a successful media service supply chain depends on agility and flexibility: sharing resources between studios, re-using and re-configuring products and infrastructures across different teams, and leveraging unified collaboration tools. And that’s exactly what DataMiner brings to the table. Want to find out how? Then the following demo series is just for you!
Watch how it works: from event creation to live event monitoring
The demo series below describes a digital supply chain where a production company can purchase services from a media service provider through its own tailored customer portal. Here’s how it works:
When the production company creates an order, it is immediately sent to the event planning team responsible for approving requested orders. The DataMiner System then automatically generates and assigns different jobs to the Master Control Room, Production, Satellite, and OTT Teams.
Collaboration features integrated into each of the apps, along with User-Definable APIs and Microsoft Teams integration allow easy synching between the people involved at any stage of the supply chain.
The demo series consists of 8 chronological videos demonstrating how DataMiner can manage events and jobs in any media service supply chain.
