Sundance Digital's Newslink adds support of FOR-A digital switcher

Sundance Digital with FOR-A has consolidated switcher operations into rundown-driven newsroom automation as part of Sundance Digital's NewsLink v2.0, a second-generation rundown-centric solution for on-air news operations.

The two companies have extended control of NewsLink v2.0 to wrap the HVS-3000 Hanabi digital production switcher and other production devices, including camera robotics and traditional digital media sources, into the rundown-driven MOS workstream.

"The importance of driving switcher setups on a per-story basis from the rundown cannot be overstated," said Sundance Digital vice president of news automation, Fred Schultz.

"The FOR-A Hanabi digital switcher fully supports NewsLink's MOS packaging of switcher commands, enabling them to travel with the stories in the rundown as well as being available for immediate revision when necessary."

NewsLink, V2.0, broadens the capabilities of the original version that supplies the necessary integration and operations layer for broadcasters to complete their digital newsroom build out.

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.
