Sundance Digital and Telemetrics team for automated newsroom camera control
March 29, 2004
NewsLink V2.0 adds management of cameras, audio consoles, and video switchers to its existing line-up of server, editor, and graphic system controls to facilitate automating the live newscast.
Sundance Digital has entered into a partnership with Telemetrics to offer its customers camera control functionality when they buy Sundance Digital’s NewsLink v2.0 – a rundown-centric solution to streamline on-air news operations.
Sundance Digital and Telemetrics, which supplies robotic camera control technology, have incorporated a control protocol into NewsLink v2.0 that transparently wraps cameras and other production devices along with traditional digital media sources into the rundown-driven MOS workstream.
NewsLink, V2.0, making its official debut at NAB2004 in Las Vegas, expands the capabilities of the original version in supplying the necessary integration and operations layer for broadcasters to complete their digital newsroom buildout. NewsLink ties newsroom computers with broadcast server/editors and supplies all additional functionality necessary for complete digital news workflow. NewsLink V2.0 adds management of cameras, audio consoles, and video switchers to its existing line-up of server, editor, and graphic system controls to facilitate automating the live newscast. A manual rundown manager is now available for facilities without a MOS-compliant newsroom computer system, or to serve as a “life boat” in the event of an NRCS crash. In addition, the director's on-air user interface has been upgraded with operator-feedback based enhancements.
Sundance Digital is celebrating its 10th NAB anniversary this year in booth# SU7470. For more information visit
