Atlanta, GA (March 19, 2010) – Video Technics, Inc. (VT) will showcase WorkFlow Complete™ at NAB 2010 in booth N6812. This new product incorporates technology from VT and Oasys for an end-to-end solution aimed at the master control / transmission play-to-air market. Building on the joint marketing and development agreement announced at IBC, Video Technics, Inc. based in Atlanta, Georgia, and OASYS from London, England are bringing their combined experience and technology innovations to fruition by offering a unique product line that provides a scalable, affordable, complete tool set.
Mark Rivers, President and CEO of Video Technics said, “In the US market today, we know that the TV stations in all demographics are being charged with redesigning their facilities and sharply reducing their staff. These demanding objectives must be met in a cost-effective manner with flexible options. Our integrated solution is tailored to provide exactly what they need, at a price point they can afford.”
Making its debut at NAB, the integrated product line provides a complete workflow of automation products consisting of ingest, asset management, editing, storage, news and master control playout automation. Mark Errington CEO of OASYS and Brennington Investments says, “OASYS, Video Technics, and Comprompter are the true pioneers in the field of automated live and pre-recorded playout solutions. Our experience, together with proven price performance, quality, and unique features, puts us squarely at the vanguard of this growing market, and we invite visitors to NAB to come and talk to us about their specific automation requirements."
Introducing the WorkFlow Complete product line at NAB 2010, booth N6812, Video Technics demonstrates its continuing commitment to providing the best of class IT-based solutions that offer broadcast, government, educational, and corporate facilities options to customize a flexible and scalable solution to meet their workflow needs. Rivers says, “Video Technics is committed to offering simple and affordable solutions to allow any facility to upgrade to a fully digital, file-based, and collaborative production environment.”
The Video Technics product line has always been positioned to integrate with other quality products as demonstrated by the 2009 introduction of an integrated offering with Comprompter. NewsFlow Complete™ is designed to handle all text data and media feeds from ingest, through editing, to on-air playback; to archive. NewsFlow Complete is a seamless combination of flexible software and non-proprietary hardware that quickly and easily handles the real-time collaboration of your entire news preparation and presentation workflow from start to finish.
