MOG Shows Skywatch Scheduler

MOG Technologies presented its new Skywatch Scheduler Production Orchestration, a module for scheduling management and monitoring processes.

Skywatch is described by MOG as a multi-channel calendar that enables users to schedule and control multiple SDI stream recordings, define record title, set job parameters, choose recording profiles and monitor the job status, “along with a friendly and completely unified timeline view”.

The system helps ensure users can track the status of all their media assets. It also allows scheduling up to a year in advance, with or without recurrence and with support for multiple time zones.

Major benefits, according to MOG, include greater interoperability; full integration of every scheduled task for video recorder and file-based ingest and playout services. It may also reduce costs by managing and configuring all events in a single GUI and provide a higher control of the assets with a roll-out view that keeps track of all the scheduled jobs.

“The router control capability also brings higher productivity by minimizing the change for human error and integration with legacy systems for an increased lifecycle of such systems,” says the firm.
