Xytech Celebrates Three Decades of Steady Leadership in Dynamically Shifting Broadcast & Media Industry
An age of linear editing, celluloid film and archaic operating systems precedes a modern era of automated scheduling, seamless facility management and artificial intelligence
Reagan, Thatcher and the Soviet Union were in the headlines. Rain Man, Die Hard and Coming to America were on the silver screen. Cable television served up just 36 channels. In media and broadcast production, editing was linear, movies were celluloid, and broadcast facilities were managed by reams of paper exchanging hands by messenger and post. It was 1988, and an enterprising young software developer from California named Richard Gallagher designed and coded a platform taking facility management into the next generation. The early system Gallagher developed evolved to become the first fully integrated facilities management system for the media and broadcast industry and the foundational technology for Xytech.
