ProSiebenSat.1 to work with ANNOVA’s OpenMedia20 September 2013
For production of magazine shows in Munich, ProSiebenSat.1 Production has decided to use OpenMedia INFINITY from ANNOVA as its newsroom computer system.
OpenMedia will deliver workflow to the editorial department, from initial ideas to playout, replacing the current ProNews system. Alongside the classic newsroom workflow, journalists will be able to access editorial and media-independent themes as well as future event planning.
“After a detailed review of newsroom computer systems in the marketplace, we decided on OpenMedia,” Frank Stephan, head of Production Systems at ProSiebenSat.1 Production GmbH, explained. “ANNOVA Systems has been a reliable partner throughout this process. We were convinced, not only by the impressive level of functionality, but also by the freely scalable workflow model. Our system environment can be smoothly integrated with their flexible product. We’re confident that we can design new solutions in the future and will be able to integrate them as well. With the help of OpenMedia INFINITY we can picture different scenarios and are ready for any future editorial planning.”
Michael Schüller, CEO of ANNOVA Systems, added, “We are looking forward to strategic collaboration with ProSiebenSat.1 production and are proud to have one of the biggest private TV broadcasting groups in Europe as a new customer. The varied innovations which ProSiebenSat.1 delivers are a perfect match with our OpenMedia product portfolio. I am convinced that we are at the beginning of a long-term business relationship.”
