NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – October 2, 2017 – Bitcentral, Inc., a provider of workflow solutions that maximize the value of media, is supplying Nexstar with critical news station infrastructure to handle growing channel output demands and digital media workflows. Today it announced that WSYR, an ABC-affiliated television station located in Syracuse, New York and owned by Nexstar Media Group has modernized their news system with a full Core News™ solution and Wellspring™ archiving for back up and disaster recovery.

“…we went on as planned today. Switched over after our noon news, the 4pm played out of the new BC system. Then the 5-6:30 newscast. All Flawless!! The installers and trainers were all GREAT! You have good folks working for you. This is our 3rd version of your newsroom system and we love and trust it!” – Craig Riker, Chief Engineer, WSYR-TV, Syracuse

WSYR now has an optimized Bitcentral playout workflow that allows the station to achieve a tight integration with their existing non-linear editing system, driving play-to-air servers and ingest encoding, taking rundowns to air without a hitch. Writers, producers and directors can now attach items to their stories in rundowns with multiple file type options, access all video sources (live and non-live) and manage content in real time, quickly and efficiently within a unified and intuitive environment.
