Digital Broadcast NewsBank to Implement WJLA Newswheel
Gainesville, FL, April 8, 2010 – Digital Broadcast, a leading producer of master control and newsroom automation products, has announced the upcoming installation of its NewsBank Automated Newsroom System at Allbritton Communications station WJLA/NewsChannel 8 in Arlington, Virginia.
Digital Broadcast was selected to provide the Zoned Newswheel and Archive System for WJLA NewsChannel 8. The automated news system will have the ability to allow each of the station’s editors and producers to develop their stories and prepare the news packages for delivery to air. The Zoned Newswheel system will provide the ability to capture breaking news, archive stories and operate three “Wheels” concurrently under ENPS MOS interface. Ingest of material can be accomplished from existing editing systems as well as other sources such as the WJLA FTP site, digital delivery systems and legacy material with automatic internal transcoding when necessary. This allows for a streamlined approach allowing content to be utilized by the Digital Broadcast system.
“We are truly excited to work in collaboration with Mark Olingy, Director of Operations and Engineering, Ernie Ensign, Director of News Operations and Tom Hormuth Director of Systems’ Integration to provide a news and archive solution to the NewsChannel 8 needs,” says John Davis, CEO of Digital Broadcast. “We are able to take our proven system and provide the building blocks to fit the NewsChannel 8 Newswheel needs.”
