PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 29, 2012 - Northampton, MA  – Myers Information Systems (http://www.myersinfosys.com/) – a respected developer of broadcast traffic, business, and content management software – today announced a successful integration of the company's flagship ProTrack™ Television suite at the central hub facility of Stratus Broadcast Solutions (http://www.stratusbroadcast.com/) in Davenport, Iowa. The Myers installation supports WYCC (http://www.wycc.org/), a Chicago area PBS member station which recently hired Stratus to provide master control and trafficking services.

The complex project was completed on-schedule, despite an extremely tight three week timeframe. Using the company's cloud-based ProHost solution, Myers temporarily assumed responsibility for program scheduling and trafficking services while fine tuning the interface between Stratus and WYCC. The live ProTrack database, along with day-to-day on-air responsibility for WYCC, was then transitioned to a physical server in the Stratus facility.

"The Joint Master Control (JMC) service model has become a core operational option in both the commercial and public television station communities. The efficiencies of the shared services infrastructure reduces the capital need and creates an innovative profitability model for the local broadcaster," said Marc Jaromin, Stratus president and CEO. "We were fortunate to partner with
Myers – their professionalism and experience in the public television sector really helped to make a smooth and efficient transition for all concerned."

"I'm very proud of our team," said Crist Myers, company CEO and president. "They successfully, provided an interim workflow during the transition from WYCC to Stratus, and 'transplanted' the live ProTrack system onto Stratus's servers – typically a six-weeks or more undertaking – all in a record-breaking three weeks ... and they got it all done during the annual PBS and NAB conventions!"

Myers' proven flagship suite, ProTrack, is available in both radio and television editions. It offers comprehensive scheduling and business management for individual, multichannel and multi-station facilities. Actively used by more than 226 media outlets, supporting more than 1,300 channels, ProTrack provides a high-level of structure, scalability, and systems integration for today's rapidly evolving media environments.
