WideOrbit Launches End-to-End Cable Network Solution at 2012 NAB Show

WideOrbit Inc., the leading provider of advertising management software for media companies is pleased to announce the launch of WO Network, a robust, end-to-end solution that combines the most advanced Advertising Sales, Traffic and Program Management systems into a single, integrated solution to manage the complex needs of cable networks. This industry-first, comprehensive system for cable networks will be presented in the WideOrbit booth at the 2012 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 16-19.

WO Network combines best-of-breed solutions from WideOrbit to deliver a complete and optimized system for cable networks that includes:

  • Ad Sales system to manage selling names and elements, rate cards, deal planning and maintenance, plus stewardship in one solution, across multiple platforms.
  • Traffic system that is the most widely deployed in the industry, with unsurpassed inventory and revenue reporting, format and material management, billing and receivables.
  • Program Management system that allows cable networks to manage all acquired and produced program content—including scheduling, media, rights management and financial management across all linear and non-linear programs.

WO Network is truly the first system of its kind, bridging the gap that currently exists in the marketplace for an integrated solution that affects virtually every department at a cable network,” said Oscar Rondon, Director, Cable Network Sales Systems for WideOrbit. “The system’s unique blend of Ad Sales, Traffic and Program Management in one product offering is unparalleled for its scalability, flexibility, ease of use and revenue generating opportunities.”

One of the challenges for cable networks is managing disparate databases, vendors and solutions. WO Network solves this challenge by delivering a single, integrated solution that provides numerous benefits:

  • Reduces the overall cost of ownership
  • Consolidated, flexible and comprehensive reporting
  • Consistent user experience across departments and functions
  • Eliminates double entry of reference data, formats, deals and other critical data
  • One point of call for support issues

WideOrbit has more than 120 Networks on our WO Traffic platform,” said Eric R. Mathewson, Founder and CEO of WideOrbit. “With the introduction of WO Network, we look forward to helping incremental networks with their complete system needs.”

WideOrbit will be providing live demonstrations of WO Network and all of its solutions at the 2012 NAB Show in booths N5129 and N5829 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 16-19.
