Austria’s first 24/7 online news channel powered by Cinegy’s JET Pack22 May 2017
OE24 TV, Austria’s first 24/7 online news channel, has chosen Cinegy’s JET Pack to help power its newsroom operations.
The news channel has been launched by daily, national newspaper OE24.
OE24 TV is a daily, national newspaper in Austria that now offers a live, 24-hour online news channel covering everything from current politics to popular Austrian society events.
JET Pack, an all-in-one live production and playout package from Cinegy, covers the broadcaster’s ingest, production, playout and graphics workflows.
The Cinegy software is currently running on an SDI-based infrastructure, but OE24 says it is looking to transition to all-IP in the future.
Cinegy managing director and co-owner Jan Weigner said, “The comprehensive nature of Cinegy software means that OE24 is completely ready to broadcast news and information instantly, as it happens, but at a fraction of what it would cost with conventional means. The addition of the Cinegy JET Pack modules also enables OE24 to achieve much more, much faster, in a software-only environment than would ever have been possible otherwise.”
