Clear-Com's Concert Enabled in Associated Press' ENPS Application at the 2011 NAB ShowNew Release of Concert Simplifies Newsroom Communications for Journalists around the World (April 04, 2011)
Ideal for ENG applications, Concert for Newsroom will assist busy reporters chasing stories in the field to get in touch with their editors, producers and other production team members with the click of a mouse. To start a chat with Concert, ENPS users need only to scroll through their contacts and click the appropriate name or icon to initiate a call and/or chat, simultaneously. In cases where multiple members need to have a conference about a story, the user can drag-and-drop multiple contacts into a conference, or members can double-click on a session link and join the call-all while working within ENPS stories. Users can see immediately the availability of any other ENPS participants for a call or text message, saving journalists time when deadlines are fast approaching.
"Concert has truly defined Intercom-over-IP with its ability to seamlessly integrate with traditional intercom systems and external audio interfaces over standard IP networks," says Patrick Menard, Product Manager of Concert at Clear-Com. "Now with the incorporation of the application into ENPS, users have even more options with which to communicate, helping them focus on the story and not technology. Time is often an enemy to those working in the field. A low cell battery or being out of cell range can often cause issues when gathering info for a time-sensitive story. With Concert, this concern is taken out of the equation as you are communicating through ENPS."
AP will also be demonstrating Concert for Newsroom at the company's NAB booth SU2002. Clear-Com Concert is compatible with Windows 7 and XP, as well as with MAC operating systems. Concert for Newsroom applications is compatible with Windows 7 and XP.
