Avid releases iNEWS 2.7

August 15, 2008

Avid Technology has made available Avid iNEWS version 2.7, an upgrade to Avid’s newsroom production, communication and newscast control system.

The latest version of the product offers enhanced features, including iNEWS Community, which lets users access, view, edit, monitor and search for content across various locations. With iNEWS Community, station groups and large broadcasters can identify breaking news more quickly and reduce time and costs associated with getting stories to air.

Previously, journalists could only access media on their local iNEWS system, which hindered their ability to receive story content from other news teams in the organization. The iNEWS Community feature eliminates these communication barriers by allowing news teams to drag and drop stories directly between systems, access and duplicate stories from other iNEWS systems, and build shortcuts to remote locations.
