Pathfire, a provider of digital content distribution and management solutions, and Digital Broadcast, a provider of automated newsroom and master control equipment, have announced the availability of the MediaFire server.
The MediaFire uses a direct interface to the Pathfire Receive Server installed at more than 1100 broadcast facilities in North America to receive and play-to-air syndicated programming with no intervening manual tasks or equipment.
Because the MediaFire accepts Pathfire-delivered content in its native format, it eliminates the time-consuming dubbing and encoding processes and enables nearly immediate availability of content and metadata.
Available as a two-output, 100-hour system or a four-output, 200-hour system with either analog or digital outputs, the MediaFire can play two to four programs simultaneously. Using the integrated playout functionality, it can transfer programs while playing to air concurrently.
