Autocue introduces new interfaces for flexible systems
Autocue has introduced dynamic MOS and FTP interfaces to its QSeries applications to enable users to control their existing third-party applications. By introducing a dynamic MOS interface to enable its networked scripting and prompting system, QNet, to connect to an existing newsroom computer system, Autocue has been able to unlock a number of benefits for a leading French broadcaster.
The news interface obtains the script and rundown information from the NRCS (including dynamic updates) and stores them in the QNet database. The prompters then access the up-to-date information from the database, rather than directly from the NRCS. This solution uses a single connection to the NRCS — even for multiple, simultaneous prompt sessions —ensuring a simple configuration and a reduced load on the host.
