Integrate and Automate Newsroom Operations
With its complete bi-directional MOS interface, NewsBank News alerts journalists of content availability and automatically reflects the newsroom rundown on the NewsBank Server. Journalists can drag-and-drop content to build the rundown. Placeholder events are used to maintain the rundown’s integrity and automatically update when material appears on the NewsBank Server. The convenience of NewsBank allows journalists to search or view NewsBank content directly on their newsroom computers.
NewsBank’s feature-rich software allows newsrooms to run more efficiently and intuitively than ever before. Build and edit the rundown on your AP, iNEWS, Autocue or Comprompter system. Watch the rundown automatically update on the NewsBank News Server.
NewsBank’s interfaces with network news delivery services provide direct transfers of files over a network directly to the NewsBank Servers where the files may be edited in their native MPEG-2 format and sent directly to air, never suffering the degradation of converting to and from baseband.
Store News Clips and Schedule Newscast Playback
