Bannister Lake announces the availability of BL Snow Day, a new school closures and local community events solution for broadcasters, schools, municipalities and digital signage networks.
BL Snow Day’s web-based workflow provides an unlimited number of content moderators the ability to schedule content for future play out, and set automatic story expiration. Automation and editorial tools enable staff to manage community events, local news stories, images, and video content, and organize it into reusable topics and playlists ready for broadcast.
In broadcast, BL Snow Day helps local TV stations generate and broadcast real-time critical school closures and bus cancellations or delays due to inclement weather on any platform, including digital signage, web and mobile. BL Snow Day also provides a simple toolset for on-campus information, allowing K-12 schools and universities to share early dismissal details across campus TV systems and digital signage networks.
Additionally, municipalities can use BL Snow Day to broadcast school closing and community event information across town hall systems, and offer it as a shared resource for the entire community. This allows local broadcasters, schools, and fire and police departments to centrally access and use the system.
BL Snow Day is simple to install- any system that can read an RSS, XML, ODBC, or JSON feed can integrate BL Snow Day output immediately.
BL Snow Day is available as an enterprise server 1RU chassis solution, a secure cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, and a lightweight, solid-state, portable Nano turnkey solution.
