05.12.2007: BCM2BCM – BCM-software networking via internet

With the Broadcast Manager module "BCM2BCM" you can simple and save connect the BCM - software directly with your customer or service! So you, can easily manage the transfer to the Broadcast Manager production planning of your customer. For example, the stab list shall be reported, information or other BCM planning data can be transferred easily by this way.

Through this network both business partners always have the same level of information and a time-consuming transmission via phone, fax or mail, media interruption, acquisition effort and sources of error are omitted. The effort to register all information is reduced. The BCM2BCM-Protocol provides a universal technology basis for further enlargements to transfer data, of any kind, between ONE customer (BCM2BCM-Server) and ANY NUMBER of connected services (BCM2BCM-Clients).

The communication is SSL-encrypted. A direct access of a BCM2BCM-partner on the BCM-data base or into the network of another partner can be precluded.For the transmission of the data a protected virtual WebDav-device is being used. The customer provides a encrypted certificate to the service. Without this certificate it is not possible to participate in a BCM2BCM-communication. It is also possible to give a time-limit for this certificate.



a) BCM2BCM - Client & Server must have the same BCM-basic-release

b) The installed BCM-software on both sides has to be connected to the internet.

c) A WebDav-device with user-administration must be set up on a WebServer. We prefer free OpenSource-software (Apache with WebDav-AddOn) and we support you during the installation.
