Deborah D. McAdams / Macon, Ga., station adopts production and playout system
WMAZ Goes Live with Precis 4
NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF.: Bitcentral announced that Macon, Ga., station WMAZ went live on the
Bitcentral’s Precis 4 and Oasis news production and playout platform. WMAZ is a
member of Gannett Co. and the CBS affiliate in Macon.
Precis 4.0 brings four channels of playout and MOS workflow integration and
integrates with various systems to meet simultaneous production needs for
broadcast, online and mobile with the scalability to meet the ever-growing
number of delivery platforms. Precis customers have the flexibility to choose
from a variety of technology brands, such as Adobe’s Premiere Pro for full
craft editing or Bitcentral’s browser editor Create. AP’s ENPS and Avid’s iNews
are tightly integrated as well.
The workflow goes beyond the newsroom and extends content creation out into the
field. Journalists can see and use all of the station’s content from wherever
they are and remotely contribute their packages back to the station.
