EPG Scheduling, Metadata
and Listings Distribution
We like to keep EPG data management simple and with our in-house scheduling application, mediator we are able to do just that. mediator enables us to restructure the schedule data that you provide, load the schedule into our database, populate any missing and required data fields and send the completed schedules to a multitude of platforms. mediator can also power VOD services using the same data that drives your linear EPG to reduce duplication along with any additional VOD-specific attributes that are required. Finally, we will distribute your schedules in a vast array of fully customisable formats to anywhere in the world.
ebs' team of experienced editors can research and write your EPG synopses from scratch adhering to often strict broadcast platform guidelines as well your own brand's chosen tone. This service can be augmented with the creation of highlights documents that showcase your channel's priority programming and themes in a given months' schedule. Whatever language your content needs to be in our expert translators can localise your channel's schedule information to ensure that your brand remains suitable for the target territory.
Web TV Guides and Social Media
Between 60 and 70% of people, when watching TV, also have a laptop, tablet or mobile in front of them. Content must therefore be accessible, engaging and consistent across all these media. ebs achieve this by providing online solutions to seamlessly link your EPG data with websites and companion apps by using an array of solutions from branded online TV guides to blogs. Our schedule management system, mediator can also feed your EPG schedules direct to your Facebook page utilising all the common features of the world's leading social networking site. We can automatically update your Twitter feed by marking EPG events to be promoted with a tweet before they are broadcast.
