NEWPORT BEACH, CA – September 14, 2012 – Bitcentral, dedicated to open news delivery and the success of its partners, announced today that Rochester, NY station WHEC went live on Bitcentral Precis™ news production and playout solution, Oasis – cloud based asset management and Create – browser-based proxy editor. WHEC News10NBC is Rochester’s NBC affiliate in the 78th ranked market, serving more than 475,000 viewing households with award-winning newscasts and popular programming. We’re proud to be the vehicle for news delivery in the Rochester, NY community. Congratulations to your staff and thank you for your partnership during the implementation project!

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.

Oasis shares over 4 million news stories annually with that number steadily increasing each year. The flexibility of Oasis has allowed the launch of a new weekly TV news show utilizing shared content and substantially improved the quality of unique content delivered to local markets.

Create enables newsrooms to produce more shows, drive content to more platforms, put more reporters in the field to develop breaking news stories in minutes and ultimately, do more with their existing resources. Create is ideal for wide area workflows by allowing efficiency in collaboration and maximizing high volume turnaround environments.

Bitcentral’s complete end-to-end workflow goes beyond the newsroom and extends content creation out into the field. Say goodbye to the need to rush back to the station to get breaking news on the air. Journalists can edit, see and use all the station’s content from wherever they are and remotely contribute their packages back to the station ready for air.
