Pathfire's Digital Media Gateway (DMG) News Connect system is now available.
The inaugural release of DMG News Connect software integrates Pathfire's DMG content management functionality into the Avid iNews newsroom computer system. Integration with other newsroom computer systems will soon be available.
In DMG News Connect, Pathfire-delivered scripts and metadata move automatically from DMG servers directly into the user environment.
The system enables newsroom personnel to search for stories available from all Pathfire-delivered news archives, while they are searching other news resources such as wire services, scripts and assignments.
The Pathfire-delivered news inventory is automatically updated on the newsroom computer system as it is updated on the DMG server.
Users can now view low-resolution preview video from the NCS, and drag and drop the included script directly into rundown scripts. DMG News Connect allows story or media list transfer to output destinations, including Pathfire's DMG Server Connect for News or Pathfire video workstations.
