Ross Video has collaborated with Autocue to create a MOS interface between its OverDrive production automation system and Autocue’s QNews.
QNews is a newsroom computer system (NRCS) component that provides flexible functions for rundown management, news scripting, assignment and contact handling, wire service processing and distribution, integrated prompting and playout control.
OverDrive is designed using the latest Java technologies and an IT class client/server architecture. It extends the reach of an operator to include control of video servers, audio mixers, robotic cameras and multiple graphic channels. In newsroom applications, the LiveLink MOS connection to the newsroom control system enables direct control of production rundowns and MOS-enabled devices.
