OASYS Integrated Playout
OASYS – Integrated playout that is flexible, scalable and highly reliable with the agility to adapt to business and strategic changes effortlessly.
“This was a very smooth commissioning project”, according to Keith Martin, General Manager & Director of Technology & Engineering at KUAC. “The OASYS system can scan the Sundance database and collect the important metadata saving endless hours of time in preparing content for the new system. In addition, the platform provides a smaller footprint, is less costly to operate and improves our flexibility, which helps operationally as we schedule more unmanned hours in Master Control. The Team from BroadStream was with us every step of the way including help with an emergency cutover when problems arose with our existing system during shadowing; we completely switched systems in just a few minutes and didn’t miss a beat.”

“This was one of the smoothest commissioning projects I’ve ever experienced. Plus the change from traditional Master Control to the OASYS Integrated Playout system is a big technology step for us and gives us much more flexibility.”
Bob Wyatt, Chief Technology Officer, KAKM - Alaska Public Media, Anchorage, Alaska
“The commissioning process was very smooth and the user interface was intuitive and easy to pick up. We also found the OASYS platform gives us much more flexibility and capability and has helped streamline our workflows.”
Trenton Mengel, Chief Engineer, KTSF, Brisbane, CA
“When it comes to a new channel launch, all we have to do is literally ‘plug-in’ the software and play. It is the fastest and most easily scalable playout system in the market today and has saved us an incredible amount of time and resource”.
Nikkhil Shirodkar, VP Network Operations, 9X Media
“The OASYS playout platform enables better automation, while remaining cost efficient and agile with no costly hardware requirements, and as the license holder for multiple channels, we truly benefit from the economies of scale that the solution allows us to have.”
Jamie Conway - CEO, Made Television
"There were quite a few potential providers, but there was no single vendor that could deliver all of our criteria on one software-based platform. It was only when we started talking to BroadStream about the OASYS integrated playout system that we knew we’d found ‘the one’.”
Tom Cummings-Technical Services Director, WBGU-TV PBS
“We needed a solution that could be easily expanded, was simple to operate and would allow us to incorporate IP technology in the future. We also needed the flexibility to be able to execute playout through both fully automated and manual control.”
Mike Edwards, Head of Post Engineering, Perform
“We will gain a significant amount of flexibility with the OASYS integrated graphics capabilities. The task of building custom promos and tagging content will be fully automated so that program editors can focus on content and more important duties”.
Chris Ostertag, Director of Technology, KLRU-TV PBS Austin, TX
“The OASYS platform was just what we were looking for. Not only does it provide multi-channel playout of live and pre-recorded content with broadcast quality graphics from a single IT server; the system can also dynamically manage channel redundancy with 1:1, M:1 and/or M:N configurations with channel prioritization. For us this reliability and resilience were absolutely imperative in our purchasing decision.”
Alan Chan - VP Broadcast Operations & Engineering, PCCW
“There’s no shortage of ‘channel-in-a box’ type systems on the market, but after a comprehensive analysis we felt like the OASYS system had the right balance of features and functionality for our needs and gave us the flexibility we wanted for the future.”
