Bannister Lake Licenses Broadcast Software to Bell MediaCompany will manage news content, channel branding for multiple broadcast facilities across Canada (March 24, 2014) Bannister Lake will license its enterprise-class software solutions to Bell Media, including all 18 CTV stations, BNN, CityTV stations and many speciality networks and channels. The network-wide solution will centralize news content management and channel branding at various hubs including Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, simplifying production workflows across Canada. Bannister Lake won the contract based on its strength and experience in automating data and graphics for broadcast operations. The contract includes licenses for BL SuperTicker, which Bell Media will use to manage news content production; and Brando for automated channel branding across SD and HD broadcasts. Both solutions offer the flexibility to regionalize content across the various stations, and support playout across multiple consumer devices (TV, web and mobile). "Broadcasters are increasingly faced with dwindling in-house resources, yet are under pressure to deliver higher quantities of engaging content based on today?s changing habits of the TV viewer," said Georg Hentsch, president, Bannister Lake. "Centralized content management offers a way for broadcasters to achieve new levels of efficiency in creation and playout while enhancing the viewing experience for consumers. We?re excited to help Bell Media realize these achievements through the performance-driven benefits of our broadcast software solutions."
