For convenient processing and enrichment of program data in the CMS, there is the Sophora module EPG (Electronic Program Guide).
Today’s Television Program Can Do More: TV magazines were a popular medium a few years ago in order to obtain information about the current television program. Today, the television program is retrieved online more frequently.
People interested in radio and television inform themselves about the current program on web portals. The resulting benefit: Broadcasters are providing additional information about their program as well as offering videos on demand and live streams relating the program. Also visitors of the website can see program changes at any time.
Sophora CMS supports online editorial departments of radio and television broadcasting in processing and enrichment of program data. The EPG (Electronic Program Guide) add-on compiles program data easily.
An integrated show list ensures that shows can be searched and filtered by program and day.
Moreover, program overlapping and gaps can be identified and rectified in time with Sophora.
With a show list and built-in plausibility check, the EPG module offers two useful tools for editors.
The show list is a special view in Sophora’s editor that allows you to search or filter shows by program and/or day. The view then displays the list of shows at a glance. The show list displays if a show is to be repeated, what the show’s document workflow status is and whether the show is marked as a program tip or program change.
The module includes a plausibility check and real-time presentation of inconsistencies: Sophora proactively detects the occurrence of overlaps and gaps and then marks them accordingly. Free broadcast slots are continually updated and recognizable for the editors at first glance.
