Sundance Digital, Telemetrics Partner For Camera Control
(March 24, 2004) Dallas, TX--Sundance Digital, in partnership with Telemetrics, is making camera control available as part of Sundance Digital’s NewsLink v2.0, the company’s second-generation rundown-centric solution to streamline on-air news operations.
Sundance Digital and Telemetrics have incorporated a control protocol into NewsLink v2.0 that transparently wraps cameras and other production devices along with traditional digital media sources into the rundown-driven MOS workstream. "Station management can now adjust each show for the best balance between staff economy and enhanced competitiveness," said Fred Schultz, vice president, news automation, for Sundance Digital.
"Telemetrics has demonstrated vision and leadership developing their control protocol. Camera information now travels in each story as the rundown is changed, and is available for immediate revision when necessary."
"Telemetrics is pleased to extend its intuitive, customer-proven control of camera and pedestal functionality into automated digital newsrooms," said Anthony E. Cuomo, vice president and general manager of Telemetrics. "With NewsLink's management of virtually all new and legacy media devices, Telemetrics now offers an obvious value for every station going digital. Telemetrics delivers substantial economies from staffing over and above the economies from NewsLink's automation of digital media."
