The F.A.S.T. system caters to our production needs and provides the flexibility and the incredible control we seek in an inventory management solution.

Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals and Skyview Networks announced today a new broadcast partnership for inventory management. Skyview Networks, an integrated professional sports broadcast solutions company specializing in play-by-play systems, will provide its F.A.S.T. (Flexible Audio Storage Technology) Inventory Management System for Kansas City Royals radio. The system allows the Kansas City Royals the ability to produce the radio broadcast directly from the broadcast booth at the ballpark, home or away.

“We are enthused to bring Skyview on board as a broadcast partner,” said Mike Bucek, Vice President of Business Development for the Kansas City Royals. “The F.A.S.T. system caters to our production needs and provides the flexibility and the incredible control we seek in an inventory management solution.”

Skyview Networks’ F.A.S.T. Inventory Management System conveniently allows the producer to broadcast directly from the booth at the ballpark: it loads, plays and automates the broadcast directly from the stadium. The application’s real-time access and flexibility supplies full control over advertiser scheduling and streamlines the as-played reporting and billing process.

“We feel privileged to extend our presence in the Midwest with this distinguished franchise,” said Matt Stys, Vice President of Business Development for Skyview Networks. “With the F.A.S.T. system, I am confident the franchise will experience an efficient approach to maintaining all components of advertiser scheduling and invoicing. We look forward to building a long relationship with the Royals as we continue to partner on play-by-play broadcast solutions.”

The Kansas City Royals radio network can be heard on more than 80 affiliates across eight states and on its flagship station, KCSP-AM 610. For more information on the Kansas City Royals 2012 season, visit http://kansascity.royals.mlb.com.
