Introducing the SAM News Solution

With easy publishing to social media platforms, desktop editing and craft editing capabilities, the SAM News Solution is the fastest way to publish breaking stories in any format NAB, Las Vegas, Booth SL1805, 17th April 2016

At NAB 2016, SAM is showing its News Solution package with new features and functionality that allows users to create the fastest news packages ever and publish them to any platform; from immediate breaking news on social media to crafted pieces for premium news broadcasts. A new user interface unifies the application regardless of whether the user is editing on a mobile device, creating simple desktop edits, or creating a piece for a broadcast by using a full post production effects package.

With a built in ingest function, video streams can be captured directly on cards from all the most popular camera formats, including the XDCAM and the P2. Users can then select shots, review edits, build simple sequences, and add voice-overs and other effects to tell a complete story. Content can be posted immediately or passed to craft editors for extra post work.

3rd Party Integration: The News Solution includes a plugin for Adobe Premier with the ability to search all clips in the system, edit with the full set of Adobe features, and then deliver them back to the online platforms and broadcast.

For playout, the News Solution can be hosted inside the NRCS and is compatible with all of these systems including iNews, Octopus, ENPS and Open Media.

Remote production is crucial, and the News Solution benefits from a new editing timeline that gives desktop, laptop and tablet users access to live and recorded content to build their stories — now with timeline editing and voiceover capabilities. Finished sequences can be published immediately to social media, web and TV, and projects can be opened and repurposed by other users. For greater versatility, the adaptive streaming feature means that mobile connections of 3G and above allows the user full editing capabilities while at the same time supporting any number of users, making it a truly collaborative tool.

Neil Maycock, EVP Marketing at SAM commented, “The news editing business is a fast moving space. With our new News Solution, SAM has taken a leap ahead of the market to provide the fastest turnaround editing and publishing system today. It allows our customers to publish to any platform or multiple platforms concurrently, faster than any other product, without compromising on editorial function or quality.”
