Iraqi Media Network, Ecuavisa turn to Avid for newsroom solutions

Avid Technology (opens in new tab)’s newsroom systems have found homes recently in a couple of new newsrooms around the world, including the Iraqi Media Network and Ecuavisa in Ecuador.

The Iraqi Media Network migrated from a manual, tape-based system and built a news facility with an end-to-end Avid newsroom workflow solution. It is scheduled to go live later this year.

Installed by Kholoud Telecom and Broadcast System Solutions (KTBS), the system includes Avid iNEWS (opens in new tab) newsroom computer systems, Avid Unity ISIS and Interplay systems for production asset management, AirSpeed Multi Stream (opens in new tab) ingest and playout servers, Avid Active Content Manager (opens in new tab) and a number of Avid editing solutions.

Additionally, Ecuadorian broadcaster Ecuavisa recently purchased iNEWS (opens in new tab) and several AirSpeed systems to connect newsrooms in disparate locations and facilitate enterprisewide collaborative news production.
