From Radio World's Who's Buying What page:
ScheduAll said it is providing NPR's Distribution division with an interface linking its existing ScheduLink system to NPR's new ContentDepot, the big digital content storage and delivery system that is being rolled out.
ScheduAll makes production and operations management software.
"This is an enhancement to the solution that ScheduAll implemented last year at NPR to manage the Public Radio Satellite System," the supplier stated. It said the new software allows NPR to integrate its operations further.
"ScheduLink interfaced with ContentDepot increases the level of business automation at NPR and streamlines the management of out-bound communications," it stated, adding that it gives stations and producer enhanced capabilities and greater efficiency.
George Gimourginas is director of NPR business activity; he said in the supplier's statement the ScheduLink software is deployed as the primary scheduling interface for the ContentDepot.
ContentDepot will distribute public station programming content and other materials. Instead of a one-way delivery system, it is conceived as an interactive transmission, storage and communications "matrix" that will let PDs research and audition programs online, and producers manage and market their own programs.
