BBC broadcasts live with Annova

OpenMedia newsroom solution for both TV and radio

Annova Systems announced that the BBC has begun using Annova’s newsroom computer system for live broadcasts of both TV and radio. The OpenMedia newsroom solution is being used across the West Midlands region in an initial rollout which will culminate in all users across 120 locations moving to the new OpenMedia system.

“We successfully finished this important milestone - the rollout of the pilot - to implement OpenMedia as a system for the journalists of the world’s largest news organisation. It allows them to create thousands of stories every day and distribute them over a global network”, explains Michael Schüller, CEO of Annova Systems.

Following a competitive and detailed procurement process, ANNOVA won the contract in February 2015 to provide the BBC with OpenMedia as its standard newsroom software. The OpenMedia newsroom system supports both digital output and linear broadcasting, as well as delivering agency wires and enabling users to manage all input and output in the broadcast newsrooms. The OpenMedia systems provide a story-centric approach to newsroom operations both inside and outside news organisations via mobiles or tablets.
