SNN News 6 installs NewsKing newsroom system

May 11, 2007

SNN News 6 in Sarasota, FL, recently installed a 45-user NewsKing newsroom system with character generator and video playout automation.

SNN News 6 is a 24/7 news station owned and operated by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, a New York Times Company. The NewsKing system offers a complete end-to-end, automated news preparation and presentation solution.

The Windows-based Comprompter NewsKing system works with SNN News 6’s Omneon Video Networks video servers, Apple Final Cut Pro editors and Chyron character generators to form a complete end-to-end digital solution.

NewsKing offers script-based automation that lifts the production elements out of the script and generates an automation list determined by the order in which scripts are stacked in the producer’s rundown. The system optimizes the entire workflow of a news operation around a digital core.
