Thomson Grass Valley has announced that the NBC Station Group will be installing its Edius nonlinear editing software throughout its NBC and Telemundo stations.
The software will mainly be used on laptop computers for field editing by ENG crews. Edius is positioned as a core piece of Grass Valley’s digital newsroom solution.
