Harris integrates Apple Final Cut Studio with NewsForce

Harris has integrated Apple's Final Cut Studio production suite with NewsForce, its new file-based newsroom solution.

Built upon the advanced NEXIO XS shared storage server architecture, NewsForce will take advantage of the open XML API in Final Cut Pro, at the heart of Final Cut Studio, to provide tight integration with the NEXIO storage area network (SAN).

With servers, editors and graphics systems working directly on the NEXIO SAN, NewsForce provides newscasters with a streamlined, MOS-enabled infrastructure for producing, processing, distributing and managing SD and HD content.

In NewsForce, editors can use Final Cut Pro to edit shared content directly on the NEXIO SAN, avoiding file exchange between systems. All users can immediately begin cutting fresh content, even as it is being ingested. NewsForce also provides editors direct integration with MOS newsroom computer systems, such as the AP/ENPS NRCS and Avid's iNEWS.

Harris will highlight NewsForce, as well as its other broadcast workflow solutions, at Broadcast Asia 2007, June 19-22, in Singapore.
