American Public Television Picks Cinegy
Kitplus on why Cinegy was chosen for the APT-delivered programming content.
American Public Television (APT) has been a leading distributor of high-quality, top-rated programming to America’s public television stations since 1961. Since 2004, APT has distributed approximately half of the top 100 highest-rated public television titles – writes Kitplus.
Due to the scale of the APT operation, management decided to build a centralized networked database and archive for the APT-delivered programming content.
“We chose Cinegy due to its strong database archive heritage and overall workflow efficiencies. Cinegy’s range of media applications including automation will upgrade APT’s ability to deliver world acclaimed programming for our core business and future ventures “said Gerry Field, APT Vice President of Technology
The scalability of Cinegy Workflow based on standard PC/IT hardware further supports APT’s evolving media processing assembly line. The APT workflow process involves the acquisition, preparation, and delivery of programming to public television stations nationwide via satellite and through online channels. The media processing functions required included ingest, editing, database storage, and long term archiving. The delivery of programming content includes the generation of multiple file formats to distribute and reach multiple APT viewing audiences.
Cinegy’s involvement with other public television clients further advances APT’s mission to deliver high-quality programming to a wide range of viewers.
