NPR Upgrades ScheduLINK System
Hollywood, Fla.-based ScheduALL is providing National Public Radio‘s Distribution Division with an interface linking its existing ScheduLINK system to NPR’s new ContentDepot. This interface linking is an enhancement to one implemented last year at NPR to manage the Public Radio Satellite System.
The ContentDepot is a digital content-storage and delivery system that serves as a virtual warehouse and fulfillment center to distribute public radio station programming content and other materials nationwide. ContentDepot’s interchange between stations and producers allows station program directors to research and audition programs online, without the need to sort through stacks of CDs and tapes. It is also a tool for producers to manage and market their own programs and simplify the management of their content.
The new capability is designed to give stations and producers enhanced efficiency while helping NPR to boost the quality of service to its customers.
