OmniBus iTX for BBC News
BBC News has ordered OmniBus
iTX NEWS and will use it to broadcast daytime news summaries from Q2 2008.
BBC News is using the software-based iTX playout and automation system for the two-minute national news summaries broadcast throughout the day between major news programs. The iTX system is integrated with the network's Quantel servers and Jupiter asset management system, and allows the summaries to be broadcast by a two-person producer-presenter team.
"The iTX NEWS system offers several significant advantages in the busy and complex environment at BBC News," said Ian Fletcher, CTO, OmniBus Systems. "The integration within the iTX software suite of all the functions of a playout and automation chain allows such forward-thinking organizations to create innovative workflows and find new ways of delivering their services."
