EBS showcases Pawa

EPG data specialist EBS is showcasing its Pawa software at this year’s IBC.

Pawa enables linear and non-linear EPG data to be aggregated, restructured and delivered to any platform in any format, according to EBS. Customers include BBC Worldwide, BT Sport, DStv, AMC Networks, Turner Broadcasting, Euronews, and QVC.

According to the company, the Pawa system is able to fulfill the full range of distribution requirements necessary for broadcasters, driving linear and non-linear EPG data from a single database.

Pawa can import listings from a variety of formats storing them centrally in preparation for distribution. Editors can then add any additional data required such as translations, editorial, images or cast before the listings are delivered wherever required, including platform operators both linear and non-linear, web, print, apps and more.

Pawa can be bought as a managed service, whereby EBS handles the entire EPG data process, or alternatively as a software-as-a-service option with full training and support.

“Pawa is unique as it enables us to deliver unrivalled client focussed propositions around the delivery of EPG data, which is increasingly rich in the connected era. This highly flexible approach allows us to easily deliver exactly what the customer requires and our recent announcements with customers, including BT Sport, BBC Worldwide and AMC Networks, further highlights our strength in the market,” explains Keith Bedford, EBS’ managing director.
