(SU902) has unveiled an end-to-end HD news solution that enables broadcasters to produce HD programming more cost-effectively.
The HD news solution consists of the new AirSpeed Multi Stream production server, an updated version of the NewsCutter software (version 7.5), the Avid Interplay production asset management system (version 1.6) and Avid Unity shared storage.
With the new Avid solution, broadcasters can acquire, edit and network as well as manage assets, playback and control functionality of Sony XDCAM HD (long GOP HD MPEG-2) content. By providing native support for the XDCAM HD system, Avid editors and news people can operate faster, saving time by not having to endure a full ingest before editing.
The company also introduced the iNEWS Instinct 2.0 audio and video editing and scripting solution as well as the iNEWS Command 2.0 newsroom automation and control solution.
