iNEWS | Command
Take charge of news playout
Now broadcasters can gain unprecedented flexibility and control in news playout workflow. iNEWS® | Command
automatically interfaces with Avid® iNEWS or any MOS-supporting interactive news management system to
consolidate control of the news playout process and ensure reliable and accurate newscasts every time.
Increase your confidence
“The new features in iNEWS | Command make
it easier to get high-impact news stories to air
quickly. We’re able to deliver more animated
newscasts and to change graphics on the
fly from the iNEWS rundown during
breaking news.”
Dennis Moran
Chyron Graphics Manager
WISC-TV
Do more with fewer resources
Avid iNEWS | Command sharpens your competitive edge by
enabling higher-quality news delivery that can capture more viewers
while reducing operating costs. Command provides straightforward,
precise automation control over a range of Avid and third party video
servers and graphics devices, and gives newscast directors the
power and flexibility to manage and accurately playout media with
ease and efficiency.
With flexibility to control a diverse range of products and
applications, the iNEWS | Command system can also be
configured to eliminate single points of failure. If any Command
component becomes unavailable during a transmission, a backup
system can take over automatically without the need for manual
intervention. Playout devices will still receive instructions from
iNEWS | Command if network connection with the newsroom
computer system is lost, or if a change takes place before
the rundown can be updated.
Improve your speed and accuracy to air
The tight synchronization between iNEWS | Command and the
interactive news management system delivers unmatched efficiency
and value to newscast directors and producers. Integrating with
iNEWS and any (MOS) interactive news management system,
Command reliably manages news playout by interoperating
with newscast rundowns or stand-alone local playlists, taking
the guesswork out of asset availability while quickly adapting to
changes. The straightforward and intuitive iNEWS | Command user
interface includes powerful visual tools that minimize ramp-up time
and reduce on-air playout errors.
