NEWPORT BEACH, CA – April 3, 2013 – Bitcentral, dedicated to open news delivery and the success of its partners, announced today that Evansville, IN station WFIE went live on the Bitcentral’s Precis™ news production and playout solution. WFIE is a member of Raycom Media and the NBC affiliate in Evansville, IN.
WFIE began broadcasting on November 15, 1953, and was the first television station broadcasting in Evansville. This fact is reflected in Channel 14’s call letters: We’re First In Evansville. Pretty clever.
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 WFIE and would like to say congratulations to your staff and thank you for your partnership during the implementation project!
