Hochanda selects EBS for multi-platform EPG data and translation services
EBS, the leading full-service provider of EPG data for platforms and channels worldwide, has announced that it is providing a range of EPG data and translation services for new arts and crafts channel HOCHANDA (Home of Crafts Hobbies and Arts). Launched by Paul Wright and Val Kaye, who created Ideal World and the Create and Craft Channel, HOCHANDA broadcasts across several platforms, including: Sky; Sky Deutschland; Freeview; and Freesat. It offers a 50/50 mix of live and pre-recorded content broadcast 24/7.

Using its unique multi-platform, multi-territory, scalable software solution, Pawa, EBS takes all the scheduling information for HOCHANDA and restructures it to meet the requirements of the Sky, Sky Deutschland, Freeview and Freesat platforms. This fully integrated data workflow provides HOCHANDA with a write-once-publish-many capability. As well as the EPG data, EBS is also providing HOCHANDA with German translation services for the Sky Deutschland platform.

David Taaffe, Head of Television, HOCHANDA explains, “The EPG is an extremely important tool for HOCHANDA as it provides a hook from channel-to-viewer. Having correct, detailed information with eye-catching copy is vital, which is why we’ve chosen EBS.”

Keith Bedford, Managing Director, EBS adds, “We’re delighted to announce that we’re providing EPG data and translation services to HOCHANDA. Pawa can import listings from a variety of formats storing them centrally in preparation for distribution. Our editors can then add any additional data required such as the German translation, editorial or extra metadata (such as images or cast) before the listings are delivered to the platform.”
