Main Features and Advantages

  • Minimal changes to current news production:  
    • NewsHub allows for centrally coordinated lists for regional, national, or local blocks. Local segments blocks are pre-recorded or are taken live. This allows for unique local and commercial break content at each site.

 

  • National and regional content is shared via streaming or via content file delivery.  
    • The shared newscasts act as if originating at each local NewsWheel site, allowing for local news content and commercials to also be added at designated ‘local’ times. 

 

  • User Access Options – Studio, Production and Master Control can all view the playlist in Crispin’s web browser playlist, webRPX.  
    • User options and privileges can be configured by each user’s log in credentials.  

 

  • Playlist includes ‘edit protection’ for site operators during playlist blocks they do not have access to edit.  

 

  • Local producers or talent can view a countdown time to local segment start.
