BeBanjo

BT are the UK’s biggest broadband internet provider. BT TV and BT Sport have established as fast-growing pay-TV platforms in the UK. BeBanjo's agile development and working practices enables BT to keep up the pace.

About BT TV and BT Sport

BT TV is a pioneering digital TV platform, combining Freeview, a PVR, catch-up services and on-demand content delivered via BT Broadband. BT TV is also available on YouView.

BT TV is powered by BT’s Vision Online Services Platform which consists of several bespoke and third-party components including Online Video Platform and Media Asset Management systems, which are now integrated with BeBanjo products.

BT Sport was launched in August 2013 and brings real competition to the UK pay-TV market with four channels: BT Sport 1, BT Sport 2, BT Sport 3, and BT Sport ESPN. These are available on the BT TV service as well as on linear services such as Freeview.

BT and BeBanjo

Operational teams within BT TV and BT Sport successfully transitioned to Movida, Metadata, and Sequence between November 2012 and July 2013.

Much of the integration between the various components of the BT TV systems had relied on manual processes, spreadsheets, and ad-hoc conversion utilities.

With BeBanjo products at the heart of all operational activities it has been possible to eliminate spreadsheets, increase automation, and wherever possible only perform cross-platform activities once.

BT TV's workflow

BT's integration with Movida

A team of 13 schedulers use Movida to manage the content catalog for the BT TV services. Movida’s scope includes: editorial metadata, non-linear rights, and non-linear scheduling on the the BT TV IPTV platforms, including YouView, and the BT Sport digital platform. The Metadata product is fully integrated with Movida and enables a scheduler to publish content to all BT TV platforms.

Third parties also use Movida to update the catalog and its metadata; this process is simplified because of our SaaS approach. This means that third parties don't have to waste time installing or updating yet another piece of software, they jump right into the work from any securely authenticated browser.

Manage delivery in Sequence

A small media operations team use Sequence to manage the delivery to the platforms for BT TV and BT Sport.

Because Sequence and Movida are fully integrated with BT TV systems, Sequence can trigger the transcoding and delivery of content. The media operations team also use Sequence to track the manual processes required when ordering material from content providers and delivering it to the BT TV platforms. Sequence has replaced all Excel document based processes and workflows that were used by the media operations team.

Sequence has enabled BT to rationalise their media operations workflow, and some tasks that were carried out by the media operations team are now performed by the scheduling team. This is saving time and money by simplifying and automating the content delivery workflow.

Metadata for automated publication

The Metadata product is fully integrated with Movida and enables a scheduler to publish content to all BT TV platforms. BeBanjo also developed specifically-requested new Metadata export profiles for these platforms.

The BeBanjo Metadata integration with the MAM automates this process for the team. The integration with Sequence means also that a scheduler always knows the current status of the media associated with a piece of content. Movida and Metadata are also integrated with other BT systems using BeBanjo APIs that receive VoD content from their partners.

These integrations mean that BT now has a single view of all their content in Movida, regardless of its source or destination.
