Story-centric publishing to any platform

Media | Distribute is now part of the full story-centric workflow. Rather than waste time manually publishing stories online, across multiple social media channels, and for mobile apps, you can focus more on telling the story, as all transcoding and delivery processes are automated in the background. You can also simplify and control social media publishing by scheduling messages linked to stories in your iNEWS rundown.

Seamless workflow integration

Leverages iNEWS, Interplay | Production, and Interplay | MAM to simplify and extend your existing workflows, and provide access to assets and metadata through MediaCentral | UX to create, version, and publish content to various platforms.

Social media publication

Enables you to leverage video, still images, and text to develop compelling social media messages as part of the core creation process. Video assets are automatically transcoded and published to the online video platform with video links embedded in the social message.

Story sharing

Enables on-air and web journalists to share assets and stories by automating content sharing between iNEWS, Interplay | Production, and/or Interplay | MAM and a web CMS to improve overall asset re-use and minimize redundant content acquisition.

Integrated review, approval, and activity tracking

Safeguard your brand by ensuring accurate and appropriate messages are published to all of your platforms with built-in review and approval tools. With the searchable record of all publishing activities per user, you can track posting activity, topics, and approvals for each post.
