EBS data will be deployed across 47 territories, for 22 channels in 20 languages.
“This new system represents an important milestone in our new company’s mission to become a modern, innovative global broadcaster,” said Karin Heijink, vice president of Viasat World’s products and channels. “We have exciting plans to expand our business and what really impressed us about the Pawa technology was that as we grow, this system grows with us.”
“We’re very excited to be working with such a well-respected brand,” adds Keith Bedford, Managing Director, EBS (pictured). “The industry has changed significantly in recent years and the role of EPG data has changed with it. It’s imperative that content is clearly and concisely presented to reflect the channel’s brand worldwide for any platform with eye catching imagery that draws in viewers.”
EBS’ flagship scheduling system Pawa will provide Viasat World’s portfolio of operators and partners with localised press and electronic listings, highlights, high-res images and quality metadata.
