Ross Video Implements Full News Workflow with Crispin Corporation
Ross Video has partnered with Crispin Corporation to implement a full news workflow designed to satisfy the requirements for a customer account. The integration of products between Crispin and Ross Video allow both companies to achieve together what they could not have offered separately. The integration consists of Crispin’s NewsCat Media Asset Management System with Ross’ OverDrive Automated Production Control System and BlackStorm Playout Servers.
“Having a solution for every customer requirement is impossible to predict,” said Todd Robinson, marketing product manager, Video Servers, Ross Video. “However, having a partner company to rely on to fill in the gaps is key to successful solutions.”
“Working with partners like Crispin and the BlackStorm team to create and end-to-end solution for the customer has been a pleasure,” said Allan Pepper, marketing product manager, Technical, OverDrive, Ross Video. “The final integration provides complete transparency between the systems involved when coding server clips in the newsroom and has received great feedback from the customer.”
Crispin’s NewsCat Media Asset Management System allows editors, producers, and directors the ability to easily submit edited content to the Ross’ BlackStorm Playout Servers using a copy of the rundown. It creates low resolution proxies of the material upon submission so newsroom users can confirm the video has been successfully submitted and is correctly assigned to the right story where it can be sent live to air with OverDrive.
“One of the primary goals of most news operations is to become fully digital. This demands sophisticated technology and tools to manage the file-based workflows. The combination of Crispin and Ross technologies delivers that end-to-end solution news organizations demand,” said Rodney Mood, chief operating officer, Crispin Corporation.
