In consideration of the continuity of program production and transmission, the next-generation broadcasting system will be established based on a continuous broadcasting system. In particular, CJ OliveNetworks will develop a state-of-the-art integrated broadcasting and information system by replacing old equipment to strengthen system stability and secure production and transmission stability through enhanced infrastructure and new technology.
In realizing managerial innovation, the new integrated ERP system will be combined with the existing dual system. By linking the internal and external system through an integrated ERP system, redundant or manual tasks will be minimized, and work efficiency will be improved with systematic data management. In addition, by strengthening security performance by stage in accordance with performed tasks, core data and networks will be protected from external cyber threats.
Furthermore, the project involves the establishment of an online production platform to reinforce Arirang TV’s global-level digital broadcasting competitiveness. Through improvements in mobile-oriented environments, such as an online broadcasting/production system, TV, radio, mobile web, and applications, CJ OliveNetworks will lay the foundation for the growth of Arirang TV in the future broadcasting market.
With the establishment of a broadcast information system, Arirang TV is expected to have a keener response to the converging environment of broadcasting and networks, improve work and information processes, enhance information security control systems, and solidify its competitiveness as an international broadcasting network by offering online content production services.
“I feel proud to be the partner that will aid Arirang TV, one of the country’s representative cultural media platforms, in its digital transition in line with the rising popularity of K-content,” said CJ OliveNetworks CEO Cha In-Hyeok. “Based on our advanced digital broadcasting and network competency and success stories, CJ OliveNetworks will lead the broadcast media SI market and expand its business scope,” he added.
