Avid iNEWS Program
What is iNEWS?
The Avid iNEWS newsroom computer system (NRCS) provides journalists with all the tools necessary to plan, create, publish and archive a news broadcast. Scalable from ten to thousands of users working across multiple sites the Avid iNEWS NRCS brings together the newsroom system, editing systems and playout applications in a unified production environment. iNEWS incorporates comprehensive Unicode capabilities, as well as support for iNEWS Command automation-assist including third party servers and integrated newsroom graphics.
The API SDKs are made available pursuant to a Software Development Kit License Agreement from Avid and will typically include the relevant code, documentation, and a sample implementation. Licensing of the SDKs is subject to Avid's approval and discretion. Support contracts for the APIs are available and entitle the licensee to direct personal technical support from Avid engineering. Support contracts are highly recommended when licensing the SDKs to ensure the integration development is a technical success.
