MediaCentral | Command
Take control of news playout
MediaCentral | Command (formerly iNews | Command) reliably manages news playout by controlling a wide variety of video and graphics devices, while dynamically linking to newscast rundowns. You can easily integrate MediaCentral | Command with MediaCentral | Newsroom Management or any MOS-supporting interactive news management system, as well as in a hybrid cloud environment. Or it can be operated independently through standalone playlists.
Get tremendous flexibility with an intuitive user interface and rich feature set. Experience unparalleled playout reliability and precise newscast control. And work anywhere with the Command Shotbox app for iPad.
The tight synchronization between MediaCentral | Command and the interactive news management system delivers unmatched efficiency and value to newscast directors and producers. Integrating with MediaCentral | Newsroom Management and any (MOS) interactive news management system, Command reliably manages news playout by interoperating with newscast rundowns or standalone local playlists, taking the guesswork out of asset availability while quickly adapting to changes. The straightforward and intuitive MediaCentral | Command user interface includes powerful visual tools that minimize ramp-up time and reduce on-air playout errors.
MediaCentral | Command sharpens your competitive edge by enabling higher-quality news delivery that can capture more viewers while reducing operating costs. Command provides straightforward, precise automation control over a range of Avid and third-party video servers and graphics devices, and gives newscast directors the power and flexibility to manage and accurately playout media with ease and efficiency.
With flexibility to control a diverse range of video servers and graphics devices, the MediaCentral | Command system can also be configured to eliminate single points of failure. If any Command component becomes unavailable during a transmission, a backup system can take over automatically without the need for manual intervention. Playout devices will still receive instructions from MediaCentral | Command if network connection with the newsroom computer system is lost, or if a change takes place before the rundown can be updated.
