Challenge

A media company “TRK LUX” needed a tool that will combine all stages of media production from sketch to final products by preparing content for live streaming and for all roles of the news production process.
Besides the content production cycle, it should give an opportunity to manage news tickers, titers, and short-term advertisement banners in one place both for TV and few affiliate websites.

Solution

We developed News Maker – a cutting-edge high-performance news and media production system for different types of users: journalists, editors, video designers, sound producers, voice-over and subtitle specialists, etc.

To simplify the content production process, Romexsoft developed a video workflow automation for a file-based content system (including automated content assembly). As a result, the team was reduced from 12 to 9 workers, which saved costs.

Developing a custom media production system instead of buying a ready solution and improving its functionality saved costs up to 90%.
For managing news tickers, titers, and short-term advertisement banners in one place we developed a customized solution based on integration with Playbox systems such as Airbox and TitleBox. It gave an opportunity to check the compliance of all ads both on TV and digital platforms.

By simplifying the common news-making process, we helped our client to accelerate product development time and establish a consistent infrastructure to maintain news production.

Currently, around 280 employees create content, manage up to 300 online/TV shows simultaneously, and stream ads without any data grind or loss.

Key features include:

  • news and media production for TV channels and radio stations;
  • news and media production for Web, SMART TV, Mobile and other digital platforms;
  • traffic and system optimization for big media files support;
  • messaging functionality;
  • content archive;
  • content search;
  • tag system;
  • real-time push notifications.
