NEWPORT BEACH, CA – June 3, 2013 – Bitcentral, dedicated to open news delivery and the success of its partners, announced today that WATN in Memphis, TN went live on Bitcentral’s Precis™ news production and playout solution. WATN is a member of the Nexstar Broadcasting Group and the ABC affiliate in Memphis, TN. WATN was formerly known as WPTY and changed their call letters during the launch of a new station in a state of the art facility.
Greg Smith, Bitcentral’s Regional Implementation Project Manager was onsite for the project and said, “It was amazing to see what was accomplished at WATN in such a short time. What a pleasure to work with such a positive group of people.”
Bitcentral’s Precis is the most efficient, production system available to news professionals today. Precis brings four channels of playout and unprecedented MOS workflow integration and efficiency to newsrooms. Precis integrates with best-of-breed solutions to meet simultaneous production needs for broadcast, online and mobile with the scalability to meet the ever-growing number of delivery platforms.
Precis customers have flexibility to choose from world-class technology brands, such as Adobe’s Premiere® Pro for full craft editing or Bitcentral’s browser editor Create, which allows newsrooms to do more with the resources they have. AP’s ENPS and Avid’s iNews are tightly integrated allowing for choice among the most popular newsroom computer systems.
We’re excited to partner with WATN and would like to say congratulations to their staff and thank you for their partnership during the implementation project!
