At NAB, Bitcentral will debut its Mobile Contribution Module which extends field-based workflows with support for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
Mobile Contribution enables teams working in the field to instantaneously deliver video, images, scripts and other metadata back to the facility. Items can be immediately attached and available for playout or one-click publishing to digital platforms. Reporters and crews in the field are now able to stay in the field longer and turn more stories every day.
“This is a great story for our customers. We have already heard reports on how this simple to use tool is enabling coverage for air, digital and social platforms that was not available previously,” said Rick Young, vp of product strategy and sales at Bitcentral.
“We spend our days with our phone or tablets in our hands so we worked hard to build the right news coverage tool for those devices. The early results have been incredible.”
Bitcentral Mobile Contribution is in production at a number of facilities and locations and has been used to cover breaking news events and the winter snow and ice storms.
