Freitag, 26. Juni 2009

BLM ScreenshotThe Bavarian regulatory authority for commercial broadcasting (BLM) has radically modernized its online offer and relaunched it based on the new version of the content management platform CONTENS. The users benefit from the well-arranged quickstart, the target group-orientated accesses and the comprehensive media news. The Munich CONTENS Partner Ray Sono AG optimized the new appearance and realized the implementation.

The Bavarian regulatory authority for commercial broadcasting (BLM) has modernized its comprehensive online offer and thus enhances services for different target groups. As one of 14 regulatory authorities in Germany the BLM licenses and supervises private broadcasting in Bavaria.

BLM's new online offer is easily accessible and impresses with its many functional and visual enhancements. The quickstart on the right side of the website indicates frequently selected keywords in the shape of a tag cloud and thus quicker brings forth requested content. Specific target group accesses for citizens, media users, media designers, parents, educators and pedagogues offer compendious emphases on topics that are of special interest for the particular target groups. The new media news do not only include BLM's own in-house notices but also feature links to the most relevant online news of the whole media domain. By request RSS feeds continually provide interested users with the latest news on the BLM website. The modernized website design skillfully places colorful highlights - plentiful white space provides more structure and clarity.

For relaunching the BLM relied on the latest version of the content management platform CONTENS. The cms technology which has been in use at BLM since 2004 once more convinced BLM's IT manager, Robert Hefter, through its combination of easy usability and very flexible customizing. Petra Ragaller, responsible for the internet editorial office, welcomes further benefits: "The clear setup of CONTENS and the new version’s intuitive functions noticeably forward the maintenance of our website."

Conception and redesign of the new BLM website were realized by the Munich CONTENS partner Ray Sono AG who was also put in charge of the entire implementation as well as the front-end programming.
