Putting it All Together
Specifically for local and regional broadcasters, NewsVision is a fully-integrated set of key Avid newsroom production tools and services that give you the best combination of SD/HD news production capability and value. You can minimize the number of steps required to quickly move content from ingest through playout, and all the necessary administrative and user interfaces are included to manage your media without an expensive asset management layer.
To begin news production, Avid AirSpeed 5000 server provides 4 channels of SD and HD record and play and easy ingest and playout management using the AirSpeed Remote Console application. Edit While Capture capability lets you edit footage on NewsCutter or Media Composer as it is being ingested. Either editing system also supports Avid Media Access file-based acquisition for fast camera to editor workflow.
For editing, NewsCutter software integrates with leading newsroom computer systems, letting you quickly create high-impact news packages.
