Bitcentral revitalizes newsroom workflow for Alhurra TV
Bitcentral has installed its Oasis and Précis systems at Alhurra TV, an Arabic-language satellite TV network based in Springfield, VA. Previously, producers had limited access to content located in different facilities. With the installation of Oasis in Springfield for use by its news bureau in Dubai, UAE, Alhurra now has the advantages of a wide-area MAM that allows its users to manage large volumes of media from one source. Once media is registered within Oasis, an approved journalist may edit media using any one of the common desktop NLE systems. Alhurra’s producers can organize stories quickly and easily for distribution on a global scale.
In addition to Oasis, Bitcentral also supplied Alhurra with Précis, which streamlines the process of going to air and playout of video. This allows Alhurra to produce content for multiple platforms while reducing costs. Overall, both systems will help provide content creation for journalists around the world to access for distribution across various formats.
