Avid targets small-market broadcasters with News Station
Avid Technology has introduced News Station, a new all-in-one product designed to help small broadcasters make the transition to an all-digital news operation.
Avid News Station combines the same Avid components used in larger broadcast environments, including the Avid AirSpeed ingest and playout server, NewsCutter craft-news editing software and the Avid Unity LANshare media network, in a single integrated package.
It also includes Avid Interplay, a nonlinear workflow engine that fuses integrated asset management, workflow automation and security control into a single system.
News Station allows users to create news content once and share it anywhere, including across TV stations. It offers two ingest channels, five news-editing seats, four playback channels (two are redundant) and 300 hours of protected DV25 storage. The system can be modified for HD news production.
