ScheduALL announces partnership with ND SatCom for integrated SNG workflow solution

ScheduALL has announced a technology initiative partnership with ND SatCom, a leader in SNG operations, that will result in an integrated workflow solution for broadcasters using SNG vehicles.
The solution, smartSNG, will allow broadcasters to integrate satellite activation and deactivation into their workflow as well as coordinate their SNG remote teams more seamlessly.
“SmartSNG is the answer to the problem of manual operations many broadcasters face with SNG,” said Stefan Jucken, Director of Business Development at ND SatCom. “Not only does smartSNG automate the entire workflow of SNG operations, it makes it more efficient, so broadcasters can focus less on planning and more on newsgathering. Also, automation means there is less potential for human error.”
ScheduLINK already automates the planning of an SNG transmission, including coordination between the satellite desk and the satellite operator, space-segment allocation, and time, day, and duration of the transmission. The collaboration with ND SatCom on the smartSNG takes this process a step further. Once the SNG vehicle is on site, using smartSNG, the operator, with the push of a button, can activate the antenna and the transmission and make sure all technical and booking parameters have been met. Once the transmission is over, the operator again needs to push just one button to deactivate the antenna and the transmission.
During transmission, the truck is connected back to the network or station and can be fully remotely controlled. Operators have a full range of communications, including intercoms, phones, and IFB. If there is an editor in the truck, smartSNG enables field editing and relay of content back to the network or station.
