BTi Maintains Presence in Top Markets!
Bti continues to build relationships in markets across the nation. We currently participate in partnerships with stations in all Top 25 markets! In addition, Bti supports stations in all but 4 of the Top 50 markets. We continue to seek new partnerships and are constantly updating and modernizing our offerings to help stations obtain and offer information necessary for informed viewers.
2022 - July
BTi has invested in a new infrastructure package to include two new high-end development servers that will provide power and storage redundancy on each platform. Along with hardware, each system will mirror each other with replication between the platforms to provide fast recovery in the event of a server failure. With the new hardware, along with our off-site backup procedures, we have decreased our mean-time recovery numbers significantly.
In addition to the hardware improvements, we have partnered with Johnson Business Technology Solutions, a security first technology company, to provide technical assistance with the hardware along with advanced security software to protect our systems. We are always invested in our security posture in the ever-changing world of cybersecurity.
These improvements will also provide us with additional hardware resources to spin-up and develop our technology faster than before. At BTi, our investment into our environment is a significant part of our commitment to our customers. In the continuously evolving world of technology, it is our goal to provide systems and software that is relevant and secure.
BTi has also invested in our physical plant facilities with a natural gas auto-switch emergency power generator for long term power to back up the current underground electric utilities. We have also added additional short term battery backup systems.
Finally, BTi was one of the first to go green in our area! For 13 years now, BTi has lowered its net energy usage with an extensive solar panel array mounted on our roof. We have continuously upgraded the HVAC facilities to provide the most efficient use of the power grid. Along with our office water treatment technologies, BTi remains committed to conservation and our planet.

BTi Prepares for Roll Out of Schedule Assets and Viewer News at NAB
On April 9th, delegations from TV stations will get the first look at Schedule Assets and Viewer News when they visit BTi’s booth at NAB.
In an environment where stations are constantly competing for advertising dollars, Schedule Assets has been developed to meet the needs of stations who want to monetize their tickers or other screens with the ability to schedule Sponsors and Snipes. Advertisers will see their sponsor graphic as it runs automatically in the ticker or independently by time of day or with the news content they sponsor. As run logs help stations show advertisers see that they’re getting their money’s worth.
Stations are also always competing for market share and searching for ways to pull in more viewers. Viewer News builds viewer loyalty by allowing viewers to submit photos with comments which can be screened by the station and sent to air.
2017 - March
Another successful showing at NAB where BTi revealed Facebook Live through ENGAGE and Schedule Assets where stations can monetize their tickers.
