Live News Production Workflow
Cinegy News is an all-in-one software package for professional live news production on commodity hardware at an affordable price. Designed with input from national news broadcasters in several countries, it can be up and running in hours rather than the weeks necessary to integrate more costly solutions.
Cinegy News is a completely integrated solution containing everything needed for news production, that’s why it is suitable for news outlets of any size. From the smallest local channel to global production workflows distributed between multiple 24/7 locations in multiple languages, Cinegy News is the ideal news solution for all situations.
Many of us rely on news broadcasts to keep us up-to-date with what is happening in the world today, but the challenge for news providers, all over the world, is the necessity of gathering information from many disparate sources and locations. The Cinegy News workflow makes this job easy using its integrated news tools.
Once this information is collected, news teams need to assemble precise and clear news stories, that allow the viewer to receive the maximum information in a short amount of time, and then output the results accurately to the second within an available time slot.
Today’s news providers have to create quality content quickly. Only a fully integrated solution that is flexible and scalable provides the tools required to create relevant, quality news bulletins that meet the expectations of modern news consumers.
Working within very short time-frames, newsroom employees have to be able to achieve as much as possible at one desk, using one application window that is intuitive and easy to use. This is where Cinegy News is so valuable to journalists and editors.
The Cinegy News Desktop software application can be used anywhere in the newsroom facility or from anywhere on the planet, which is necessary for both global news stories and location reporting. Cinegy’s solution is extremely intuitive, and enables people to do their jobs more quickly, more efficiently and more effectively.
Cinegy News can meet the challenges faced by modern news channels because it is affordable and cost-effective, flexible and scalable, simple and intuitive, efficient and effective and above all, because it runs on commodity hardware.
Cinegy News Workflow
Cinegy’s solution for news uses Cinegy software to form a fully integrated end-to-end news production and real-time playout system on commodity hardware at an affordable price, therefore avoiding integration with dozens of manufacturers’ hardware/software tools.
It provides everything from automated news feed handling; story writing, review and approval; fully integrated video and audio editing; voiceover recording; rundown creation; graphics template based titles; to teleprompting.
The entire solution sits on top of Cinegy’s MAM solution, Cinegy Archive, and uses Cinegy Desktop, which includes news production features in a collaborative production environment. That’s because a full-featured NRCS (Newsroom Computer System) client is built into Cinegy Desktop, and Cinegy Desktop’s timeline editor and audio recorder provide everything needed for everyday news production.
Finally, a set of studio software components provides real-time video playout, graphics production, and teleprompting functionality to create and broadcast a polished news show.
With Cinegy News, the entire production process is streamlined and very tightly integrated between each stage of the news process, from story creation, video and audio editing, titles and graphics through to final direct playout without rendering or export. Everything works out of the box, which makes the entire system easy, powerful, and affordable.
