Harris Corporation To Roll Out Comprehensive NewsForce Broadcast Product Family At NAB2008New Release Features Integration With Apple Final Cut Pro? For The Newsroom (February 21, 2008)
Built upon advanced Harris® NEXIO shared storage server architecture, NewsForce is a comprehensive, HD/SD news environment that provides file-based newsroom workflow from field editing to delivery on air. In combination with its family of high-performance, MOS-enabled news editors and Inscriber® graphics systems, NewsForce provides news operations with a powerful, richly featured HD/SD infrastructure that scales cleanly to accommodate all current and future broadcast needs.
The NewsForce product line includes a family of editors optimized for the quick edits and 24/7 demands of live news production: NewsForce ES, a high-resolution, high-performance news editor; NewsForce Desktop, a proxy editor that operates on standard desktop PCs; NewsForce XNG, a software-based laptop editor for the field and newsroom; and the proven Velocity NX, a full-featured promotions/craft-style editor used in newsrooms around the world. All NewsForce editors capitalize on the speed, flexibility and fault tolerance provided by the NEXIO storage area network (SAN) and provide seamless integration with AP's ENPS®, Avid's iNEWS® and other newsroom computer systems (NRCS) to streamline the end-to-end newsroom workflow.
NewsForce also features full integration of Apple® Final Cut Pro, enabling editing directly onto the NEXIO SAN ? even during ingest ? and sharing of media and timelines with NewsForce and Final Cut Pro editors. Plug-ins for Final Cut Pro enable content and metadata searches on the NEXIO SAN, browse viewing and shot selection, and MOS NRCS integration. This NewsForce integration empowers Final Cut Pro users with immediate access to all content on the NEXIO SAN, including content being recorded, and allows edits to air directly from the SAN without waiting for rendering to finish.
