Broadcast Tech News – Matrix and WideOrbit announce new integration

The Canadian Association of Broadcasters (CAB) says the federal government's exclusion of broadcast media from journalism support tax credits in Budget 2019 is unfair.

Matrix and WideOrbit have announced a new integration that gives media sellers the ability to review Accounts Receivable aging data in Matrix’s media ad sales platform, Monarch, from WideOrbit’s traffic and billing system, WO Traffic. This is aimed at helping reduce customer credit issues and optimize both the salesperson’s commission and advertiser inventory options. Specifically, the integration provides a graphical, Accounts Receivable data card that gives users the ability to review outstanding accounts by 30/60/90/120+ day aging periods, with deeper insights into the invoice details of advertisers. Exposing this data from WideOrbit in Matrix Monarch’s dashboard will enable media companies to improve cashflow through streamlined collections.

ARHT Media, the Toronto-headquartered producer and distributor of hologram content through its patented Holographic Telepresence technology, has introduced Virtual Global Stage. The tech is designed to provide an on-stage experience online, without the need for a venue, travel, or the gathering of presenters or attendees. The multipoint broadcast solution can bring multiple 3D, life-size presenters to a virtual stage, side-by-side, as if all parties were physically next to each other, while actually being in completely different locations around the globe. It also offers the audience capability to interact with presenters through a moderated chatbox, and integrations for 3D graphics and PowerPoint.
