Snell debuts newsroom automation system
Snell debuted a newsroom automation system based on its Kahuna SD/HD multiformat production switcher. Deploying technology from Mosart Medialab, the newsroom automation system tightly integrates with newsroom computer systems via a MOS gateway and controls an array of production gear, including the Kahuna production switcher, robotic cameras, audio mixers, video servers, graphics, routers, lights and multiviewer displays.
The fully integrated system gives producers complete control over the newscast and enables them to drive various devices with the press of a button. The system's easy-to-use graphical interface offers clear and intuitive news rundowns, views of all story elements and countdowns to the next story.
