Iroquois, ON Canada – June 17, 2008 – Ross Video has collaborated with Autocue to create a MOS interface between OverDrive and QNews.
Autocue’s QNews is a newsroom computer system (NRCS) component, providing powerful, flexible functions for rundown management, news scripting, assignment and contact handling, wires processing and distribution, integrated prompting and playout control.
“Since collaborating with Autocue, we have successfully launched multiple systems on-air,” said Brad Rochon, OverDrive Marketing Product Manager. “Autocue have been a great company to work with, offering excellent development and end-user support. I am looking forward to further collaboration in the near future.”
“Despite the differences in location and time zone, the technical integration between QNews and OverDrive has been a smooth and straightforward exercise, evolving over time from a custom interface to the industry-standard MOS protocol,” said Neil Hutchins, Autocue Chief Technical Officer. “The products compliment each other extremely well, and together provide an elegant and comprehensive solution for fully-integrated news production.”
OverDrive® is designed using the latest Java technologies and an IT class client/server architecture. OverDrive extends the reach of the operator to include control of video servers, audio mixers, robotic cameras, multiple graphic channels and more. In newsroom applications, the unique LiveLinkTM MOS connection to the newsroom control system (NRCS) enables direct control of production rundowns and MOS enabled devices.
Autocue is the only company to offer the television industry a single solution for all transmission, newsroom, scripting and prompting requirements. Autocue Group prompting solutions are compatible with all newsroom systems on the market and are used all over the world by broadcasters, production professionals, government facilities and corporate producers.
