OASYS , Video Technics and Comprompter will join forces at NAB 2010 to demonstrate rock-solid IT-based broadcast workflow solutions, based on over 50 years of experience in the field.
Building on the join marketing and development agreements announced at IBC 2009, the co-operation between the companies now provides a product portfolio consisting of ingest, asset management, editing, shared storage, archive, newsroom automation, master control and automated playout. These can be configured in a variety of ways to create a complete broadcast workflow of automation tools, or further integrated with a huge range of other broadcast equipment and software, providing the ultimate in customer flexibility.
Mark Errington, CEO, OASYS, said, "OASYS, Video Technics and Comprompter are the true pioneers in the field of automated live and pre-recorded playout solutions. Despite many a claim from legacy system manufacturers to be at the forefront of a new revolution of IT-based broadcast workflow, our companies have only ever developed IT-based solutions, and have a long history of delivering integrated workflows, - unlike organisations that have historically produced legacy playout automation solutions and have only latterly changed focus. Our experience, together with proven price performance, quality and unique features, puts us squarely at the vanguard of this growing market, and we invite visitors to NAB to come and talk to us about their specific automation requirements."
As well as showing the individual software components, the companies will be demonstrating suggested workflows tailored to different broadcast scenarios, including a newsroom workflow and a master control solution.
Mark Rivers, President and CEO, Video Technics, said, "Video Technics is committed to offering simple and affordable solutions to allow any facility to upgrade to a fully digital, file-based, and collaborative production environment."
Ralph King, President of Comprompter says, "Together we prepare, produce, and present a station's newscasts and other special programming day in and day out."
