Broadcasters are dealing with a perfect storm of market and technology-driven changes: the move to demand-led consumption, the proliferation of platforms and sources, fragmented audience tastes, managing ownership and rights for different uses, and increasingly complex advertising requirements.

Leading broadcasters have come to rely on our Broadcast Network Control System (BNCS+) to control and automate their broadcast transmissions. BNCS+ is a proven solution enabling streamlined control and monitoring of broadcast equipment within a broadcast environment. The solution’s easy-to-use panel instrumentation reduces operational costs and complexity.

Our clients know from experience that BNCS+ is the most reliable and flexible control platform on the market – critical to efficient, reliable content delivery across all channels, all the time.

BNCS+ Software License The service is made up of 3 components:

  • BNCS drivers, the core BNCS Software which vary according to each system in number, complexity and price.
  • BNCS panels, which represent the control interface (software only i.e. customer provides screens)
  • BNCS automatics, which are a coded set of routines and business logic unique to each installation.
