Since 1997 Pharos has developed the unique Mediator platform to manage content globally from the desktop and enable rapid expansion in playout, presentation and publishing. Mediator 4 delivers productivity enhancements for all areas of operations to drive content and promotions for multi-channel playout alongside services for VOD, IPTV and mobile.
Pharos Mediator is a high performance platform for media management and desktop workflow. Mediator offers greater efficiency in multi-channel, multi-platform and multi-site broadcast by unifying workflow and operations under a single enterprise with browse at every desktop. Mediator is based on Oracle 10g and integrates library management, ingest, workflow, post production, transfer management and playout providing end-to-end web based desktop operation.
Pharos Playtime is the multi-channel automation option for Mediator that enables broadcasters and service providers to publish multi-format content far beyond traditional television channels. Playtime is directly integrated with Mediator's multi-language workflow and can report workflow and content status on a simple per channel or service basis. Playtime is integrated with Mediator's transfer management and transcode capabilities.
Pilot is the Pharos control platform to improve operations in Studios, Master Control Rooms and Post Production Facilities. Pharos Playtime automation and Mediator Content management also use Pilot as their integrated control layer.
