Radio Television Brunei Chooses AP's ENPSImplements AP's news production system (July 21, 2004)
The Associated Press announced today that Radio Television Brunei has choosen AP's ENPS. Radio Television Brunei (RTB) is the primary news source for Brunei Darussalam with two nightly newscasts covering regional and international politics, sports, business, and consumer news. A key player in regional broadcasting cooperation, RTB is a member of Asiavision, a news exchange agreement under the umbrella of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union, and RTB's Newscentre coordinates the ASEAN Television News Exchange, enabling state broadcasters in the Association of South East Asian Nations to share news.
In choosing a new newsroom system, RTB wanted to improve workflow, leverage current hardware capabilities, coordinate the efforts of remote journalists, provide multilingual support, and be easy to use. According to Johari Achee, Head of News, Current Affairs and Sports, ENPS met these needs, is user friendly, and integrates well into the way RTB journalists create newscasts in Malay, English, and Simplified Chinese.
Driving RTB's newsroom, ENPS integrates with BDL-Autoscript prompters and Pixel Power Collage CGs, and RTB journalists take ENPS with them all over the world to cover the important trips of His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam.
Implementation and ongoing support for RTB are provided by Techtel (SE Asia) Pte Ltd. Techtel Pty Ltd., its Australian-based parent, is a distributor of ENPS systems in the Pacifica region, where it has installed and supported more than 70 newsroom computer systems.

Powerful, easy-to-use features include the industry's only fully-integrated search engine, scripting, program lineups, planning, contacts, messaging, news wire management, third-party device control, and off-line and remote access capabilities for field staff. ENPS also supports the AP-inspired MOS (Media Object Server) protocol, the industry standard for integration of media servers and editors, character generators, still store devices, and a variety of news production equipment and systems.
