Indian state broadcaster Doordarshan has made two significant moves recently to enhance its digital news production.
The broadcaster is installing 75 ENPS news production workstations from the Associated Press at its Delhi studios. The systems are expected to go live by the end of the year. Separately, Doordarshan has selected Omnibus Systems to provide news automation and broadcast content management for a new, server-based, news system.
The system will provide journalists with integrated desktop search and edit functions, running inside the AP ENPS workstations. Media content can be viewed and manipulated even as it is still recording, allowing stories to be created and played to air from the OmniBus News Playout suite.
OmniBus will also provide the entire machine and broadcast device management to enable complex MOS rundowns created in the newsroom computer system to be played out, while retaining frame accuracy for all primary, secondary and tertiary events scheduled within any item in the MOS playlist.
