Bitcentral Receives Emmy® Award for Innovation in TV Newsroom Technology

Apr 25 2017

Newport Beach, Calif. – April 25, 2017 – Bitcentral, a provider of digital and broadcast video workflow solutions, is one of the recipients of a Technology & Engineering Emmy® award, presented by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) in recognition of Bitcentral’s contribution to the widespread adoption of the Media Object Server (MOS) protocol, which has revolutionized television newsroom automation.

“MOS has been a major driver of the increasing use of newsroom automation systems by television stations across the U.S.; and being recognized alongside other top industry players with an Emmy for our role in popularizing MOS is an honor,” said Bitcentral founder and CEO Fred Fourcher. “Bitcentral is a top provider of MOS-based newsroom automation solutions, that increase productivity and efficiency for approximately 250 stations of the more than 600 TV newsrooms throughout the country using our MOS products,” Fourcher added.

Newsroom automation systems based on the MOS protocol have dramatically streamlined and simplified the process of producing television news broadcasts by enabling cameras, teleprompters, playout servers, and other critical TV newsroom equipment to interoperate seamlessly as integrated and automated systems. MOS has allowed televisions stations to build best-of-breed newsroom automation systems comprised of individual products – often from differing vendors – selected based on their individual merits, rather than requiring stations to use all-in-one systems.
