Pathfire, Digital Broadcast agreement automates, streamlines news workflow

Digital Broadcast, a provider of automated newsroom and master control equipment for television broadcast, and Pathfire, a provider of digital content distribution and management solutions for the broadcast television industry, have announced a technology agreement that provides broadcasters with an automated and streamlined workflow to move news content directly to video file servers and editing platforms.

As a result of this agreement, news content video files received on the Pathfire Digital Media Gateway (DMG) in a broadcast facility can be automatically transferred to Digital Broadcast NewsBank and MediaBank servers via Pathfire DMG Server Connect for News.

There is no need to store video files on tape prior to transfer to play-to-air servers or video editing systems. Once files are transferred to Digital Broadcast servers, the files can be edited in native MPEG-2 format and sent direct to air, retaining master file quality and avoiding any file degradation.

With Digital Broadcast's NewsEdit editing software, broadcast facility staff can perform I, P or B frame-accurate, long or short GOP MPEG-2 edits as well as frame-accurate native DV edits. Also, MPEG-2 content and DV content can be edited together and stored as MPEG-2, DV or other formats.

Newsroom workflow will benefit from the efficiency and economy realized from using the Pathfire and Digital Broadcast systems in tandem.
