ABC affiliates WDAY in Fargo, ND, and WDAZ in Grand Forks, ND, have made the transition to an all digital tapeless news production environment with Video Technics’ NewsFlow solution.
WDAY and WDAZ selected NewsFlow to improve production workflow and on-air quality while providing a high return on investment. Before making the transition, both affiliates produced packages in a tape-to-tape environment, which slowed down production time and eventually degraded the on-air video quality.
NewsFlow allows reporters and editors to create packages in a completely shared file-based end-to-end workflow that includes Apella servers for multichannel ingest/playout. Using VT Proxy Editor and embedded inside ENPS MOS ActiveX plug-in workstations, journalists have instant access to the centralized database and can perform low-resolution browsing and non-volatile editing from networked-attached storage using any PC on the network.
Reporters and editors can simultaneously browse and edit packages from their desktop and seamlessly drag and drop revised packages into the specified ENPS rundown. With the VT Proxy Editor application embedded inside ENPS workstations, journalists have instant access to the centralized database from any PC on the network.
