The Crispin NewsWheel is intended to let broadcasters with existing news productions add additional DTV programming streams with little investment.
The system offers complete control over on-air programming and provides support for live news, weather cut-ins, commercial breaks and other custom events. NewsWheel executes multiple active rundowns, as entered by a producer through a newsroom computer system (NCS).
The solution, while working seamlessly with an NCS, switches to studio output to support live news cut-ins and triggers master control automation to roll commercial breaks. It interfaces to NCS through MOS, serial and FTP methods.
