Leitch will supply its Nexio NewsNet server system to the Associated Press.
Comprising 500 hours of storage and two Nexio NewsFlash nonlinear editing systems, the NewsNet system will be used by AP to create news stories for distribution over the wire to print, radio and television networks.
Leitch's Nexio offers integrated application platforms for editing, browsing and media management across a multi-tiered storage hierarchy. It provides fault-tolerance and interoperability, and supports multiple compression formats. Nexio NewsFlash is a fully integrated nonlinear editing system that reduces editing time by providing direct access to all content stored on the Nexio server system as soon as ingest begins allowing editors to play their finished edits directly to air.
