OASYS Integrated Playout is a software platform designed specifically for television broadcasters to deliver high quality, efficient playout that is easy-to-use, very flexible, highly scalable and extremely reliable.

We simplify operations by integrating playout, scheduling and graphics in one unique software architecture that streamlines workflow to improve your on-air presentation. Using commodity-based IT hardware allows you to control costs and be less dependent on “purpose-built” hardware. Applications are designed to run both independently or as part of a larger networked system to provide the flexibility to build systems from a simple channel in a box all the way up to large multi-channel solutions. Each software module operates independently to increase resilience and reliability. System architecture is designed to be simple and incorporate optional software modules to tailor your solution with just the functionality needed for each channel.
