SCISYS Media Solutions has signed a deal with France Télévisions to deploy its OpenMedia Infinity newsroom computer systems in all of the broadcaster’s newsrooms.
The deal covers two national TV stations, an information channel, 24 regional TV stations, 10 overseas TV and radio stations, a digital multi-platform information offering and approximately 3000 named users who will all transition to SCISYS Media Solutions’ system. This will work in conjunction with the Newsboard unified web-based user interface for journalists and editorial teams.
According to the company, OpenMedia Infinity provides maximum speed and scalability for handling complex workflows in broadcast news production – from wire search, scripting, to rundown management. Newsboard’s customisable and open widget architecture is designed to help organisations keep abreast of both workflow changes and the challenges of the evolving media landscape.
“This is a fabulous contract win in the face of stiff competition from other vendors and confirms our position as the leading supplier of newsroom solutions in Europe,” said Michael Schueller, CEO and chairman of SCISYS Media Solutions. “We are delighted to welcome France Télévisions to the OpenMedia family and look forward to working with them on developing an agile broadcast newsroom to meet the challenges of the future.”
