NBC Affiliate Installs BitCentral Precis
West Va. station WTAP has purchased the BitCentral
Precis play-to-air system to create a digital, file-based newsroom.
The Precis integrated system that ingests multiple analog NTSC sources--microwave feeds or SDI--into a station's digital workflow and allows the news team to gather, edit and file stories remotely. The system adds redundant digital news management technologies with non-proprietary storage and archiving abilities.
"BitCentral's Precis solution will greatly benefit WTAP by delivering the ability to seamlessly integrate local news into the national news interface," said Fred Fourcher, CEO for BitCentral.
Atlanta-based Gray Television owns the NBC affiliate.
