In an effort to provide improved integration between broadcast branding and traffic systems, Bannister Lake’s Chameleon has added support for reading playlists using BXF, the SMPTE standard for data exchange in the broadcasting industry.
By reading traffic playlists directly, Chameleon provides a way to bypass automation systems for triggering secondary events like snipes and bugs. The playlist data is moved directly into Chameleon’s schedule providing tight integration with graphics and data.
To help in viewing the secondary events, Chameleon now also supports viewing segments in the schedule. This makes it easier to view the timing of assets and offers a way to safely adjust or manually add new ones.
Another new feature is to clearly mark assets which haven’t been fully defined. In this way, assets that aren’t currently in the database can be scheduled but can be clearly marked as requiring definition.
