OmniBus Systems Launches OPUS

To address the demands of fast-paced news and sports production environments, OmniBus Systems has released the new OmniBus OPUS News & Sports Logging solution. An integrated set of tools that enables fast and intuitive logging of live and recorded events, OmniBus OPUS Sports & News Logging significantly improves facilities' ability to manage content in real time across multiple systems with speed and efficiency.

"When time is of the essence, it is critical that broadcasters have robust, easy-to-use tools for leveraging live content to its maximum potential," said OmniBus Vice President of Technology John Wadle. "We designed the news and sports logging component of our OPUS content management and workflow suite to enhance and automate the live production environment through flexible realtime logging and rapid access to stored and logged content. As a result, broadcasters can bring high-quality breaking news segments and the latest sports highlights to air quickly."

With fast one-button-press event logging, task-configurable user interfaces, and intuitive desktop control of live and prerecorded feeds, the OmniBus OPUS News & Sports Logging system provides all the tools necessary for critical highlights logging even as the story or match is taking place. The system's robust capabilities for recalling, sorting, and accessing logged events within content provide unique functionality to meet broadcasters' needs for fast and efficient news and sports production. The easy capture of key frames allows users to build storyboards rapidly, and the ability to review and filter logged events allows the user to focus on highlights and quickly create shot lists for review and export to production editors for finishing.

The OPUS News & Sports Logging System is part of OmniBus' OPUS Content Management and Workflow Suite, and is fully integrated with OmniBus Colossus transmission automation and HeadLine news suites, as well as with other automation and newsroom systems.
