Temple University’s new television system has installed ProTrack TV—Myers Information Systems, Inc.’s “flagship” television management system application—to manage metadata, traffic and broadcast schedules.
Temple University Television (TUTV), housed within Temple’s new Kal & Lucille Rudman Media Production Center, offers two channels of programming drawn from the highly regarded School of Communications & Theater (SCT) as well as other university schools and colleges, plus community and professional broadcast partners. TUTV is available to Philadelphia residents via cable systems. In addition, online access for viewers living outside the cable coverage area is scheduled to begin in January.
Headquartered in Northampton, Mass., Myers is a developer of broadcast traffic, business and content management software. David Martin, Temple’s manager of operations and engineering, says he has experience with Myers’ products and services, and that is why he chose ProTrack TV to manage both channels.
“I’ve worked with Myers Information Systems while serving as engineering manager at two other facilities,” Martin said. “The first was an upgrade and the second a complete new installation; both were completed seamlessly and professionally from start to finish, as was the current project. Their implementation, operator training, and follow-on support have always been first rate.” The software will also serve as a teaching tool for SCT broadcasting students, according to Myers.
