NRK extends deployment of Mosart news automation
The Norwegian broadcaster is intalling Mosart Medialab at 12 regional news studios.
Norway's NRK is extending its deployment of Mosart automation from three central systems to include 12 of its regional news studios and an additional central system. With the completion of this project, all NRK facilities will enjoy the same efficiency, control options and agile operation as the broadcaster's main studios in Oslo.
The system will interface with NRK's ENPS newsroom computer system story control and transform its rundowns into Mosart automation scripts to enable news production with just two operators in the gallery. Equally important to NRK is the way in which Mosart automation allows those operators to perform on-the-fly editing of headlines and to insert breaking news into the running order. The option to employ a touch screen GUI will further streamline gallery operations.
The installation of Mosart automation across NRK regional sites will start in Stavanger in October 2013 and continue in Bodø in November, with Bergen following, and the rest of the sites finished in 2014.
