Harris Corp. is set to introduce OSi-CableNet, a traffic and billing system, at The Cable Show this week in Washington, D.C.
The Windows-based system allows cable networks to fully integrate their sales and traffic operations, and it provides automated, real-time tools to streamline operations and optimize revenue yield, the company said.

OSi-CableNet includes tools for spot serialization, management of secondary events and interactive reporting options that provide real-time information related to new deal entries, changes to existing deals and billing spot status. The system also delivers benefits for day-to-day operations, including inventory reservations and the ability to deliver separate feeds based on time zones.

Additionally, the system automatically allows for time-shifting; for example, an East Coast feed will naturally synchronize for West Coast playout. 

“Cable networks now have a fully functional, automated traffic and billing system that is tightly synchronized with complementary reservation systems,” said Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications. “Harris has designed a system exclusively for cable networks that capitalizes on our proven OSi-Traffic solution for broadcasters and adds nuances unique to the cable industry. The result is a comprehensive solution that delivers the tools that speak the language cable networks require, and that allows networks to maximize programming revenue and operational efficiency across multiple business departments.”

OSi-CableNet delivers more flexibility when working with program content. And OSi-CableNet integrates with systems – including the Invision DealMaker ad sales system, StorerTV SIMS program management and Harris ADC automation – to create a solution across network operations. 

Harris’ new system will be on display at the company’s Cable Show booth (#3307).
