"Local publishers have arguably the most complex set of needs of any digital publisher," said Roger Keating, senior vice president, digital media, for Hearst Television and an Internet Broadcasting director. "Given the volume of content, the number of iterations, and the very distributed nature of what we're publishing, we demand a lot from a publishing system -- and the tasks for which we are looking to a digital publishing platform to support us have grown in complexity. Internet Broadcasting has taken on the challenge of fully retooling their publishing platform to meet our needs -- not just for this year, but for the next decade."
