Worldnow Integrates Its Technology With Avid iNEWS
NEW YORK, April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Worldnow, the leading online technology, content, video and Revenue-solutions Company for local media, has announced that they have integrated their Enterprise Content Publishing Platform (web, mobile, social, video) with the Avid® iNEWS® newsroom computer system . During this year’s NAB, they will showcase their continued progress in strategy for enterprise newsroom integration.
This strategic initiative delivers an integrated and efficient, bi directional workflow between the iNEWS newsroom system (Avid Interplay® integration will soon follow) and Worldnow’s Enterprise Content Publishing platform.
In the new integrated workflow you can post content directly to and from the iNEWS Rundown for simultaneous transmission into the Worldnow Enterprise Content Publishing platform to push across web, video, social and mobile platforms. In addition, the integration will also enable Auto Clip editing for commercial removal to streamline editing workflow. A news producer is no longer required to copy and paste from one system to another, thereby streamlining the publishing processes for maximum scale and efficiency.
“We are thrilled to join forces with Avid and to be able to provide our mutual clients with the benefits of a truly integrated newsroom workflow,” said Bob Mischel, Worldnow’s COO and CFO. “Worldnow’s market penetration makes us a powerhouse in local media and we look forward to rolling out our seamless workflow to our 400+ clients.”
“Our partnership with the Avid is essential to providing our clients with the best in class for newsroom workflow integration,” said Joe Sticca, SVP Digital Product Development for Worldnow.
“The integration with the iNEWS workflow allows our clients to focus on productivity and is critical when it comes to breaking news,” said Robert Forsyth, Lead Digital Architect for Worldnow. “We are excited about the competitive advantages it will bring our clients.”
Worldnow recently inked deals with 12 new stations and is used by 40% of US broadcasters for web, mobile, social and video publishing.
