Raycom Media Completes National Roll-Out of Precis as it Goes Live at WWIX Just Days Before NAB

NEWPORT BEACH, CA –April 16, 2012 – Bitcentral, dedicated to open news delivery, announced today that WWIX went live with Bitcentral’s Precis™ news production and playout solution.

Raycom is among the Top 20 U.S. station group owners, serving more than 12 percent of the nation’s TV households. With a demand for 24/7 news, Raycom wanted to enhance their existing newsroom system by enabling journalists to break stories faster than ever before and immediately publish to multiple platforms.

Raycom began rolling out Precis across the group back in 2006 and WXIX in Cincinnati completes the process by going live this week.

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 the flexibility to choose from world class technology brands, such as Adobe’s Premiere® Pro or Grass Valley’s Edius for full craft editing. AP’s ENPS and Avid’s iNews are tightly integrated allowing for choice among the most popular newsroom computer systems.

The workflow goes beyond the newsroom and extends content creation out into the field. Raycom journalists can see and use all of the station’s content from wherever they are and remotely contribute their packages back to the station.
