Post-Newsweek Stations utilizing Miranda graphics system
Miranda Technologies will
supply Post-Newsweek Stations with a centralized news graphics system using its
Xmedia Suite template-based graphic workflow tools.
The Xmedia Suite system will support on-screen news graphics over multiple platforms,
24/7, for Post-Newsweek Stations’ six affiliates through a centralized graphic
hub, namely KPRC (Houston), WDIV (Detroit), WPLG (Miami), WKMG (Orlando), KSAT
(San Antonio) and WJXT (Jacksonville). Miranda is also Post-Newsweek’s choice
for channel branding equipment.
‘Miranda’s end-to-end solution will provide the station group with a complete
workflow for centralized graphics. The workflow tools, such as work order
management, graphics processing, central and local storage, asset management in
HD and SD with multiple formats, along with unique station branding were some
of the deciding factors’, said Marcus Williams, Vice-President of Post-Newsweek
Stations and Chief Engineer at WDIV.
Using the Xmedia Suite’s MOS-compliant ENPS and iNews plug-in software, news producers
and journalists at Post-Newsweek Stations will have immediate access to
graphical elements and templates to create lower thirds, over-the-shoulder
graphic images with integrated moving backgrounds, and full-screen builds with
animated highlights, directly from their newsroom control system desktop.
Graphical elements will be produced and loaded
onto a Miranda Xmedia Server at the system’s core, as well as onto backup satellite
servers at each local station. This will allow all graphical assets to be
ingested once, centrally archived and automatically moved to a range of graphic
