Atex is pleased to announce that the Atex Polopoly Web Content Management system now supports integration with Avid® (NASDAQ: AVID) Interplay® Pulse platform to help TV newsrooms easily deliver content to web and mobile channels resulting in accelerated reach, ratings and revenue.
Avid Interplay Pulse enables on-air and web journalists to share assets and stories by automating content sharing between Avid iNEWS® and the Atex Web CMS to improve overall asset re-use and minimize redundant content acquisition.
“In today’s highly competitive multi-channel media business, it’s important for news executives to deliver breaking news and updates to any TV, web or mobile devices that audiences are using at the moment,” said Lars Jiborn, Atex Vice President of Sales. “Atex has established a solid track record with our Web CMS platform in allowing broadcast companies to share content across all channels, and our integration with Interplay Pulse further automates the entire production workflow and distribution process.”
The Atex-Avid integration makes it simpler and more efficient for news staffs to report and distribute relevant, compelling stories. When Avid announced Interplay Pulse recently, Mukul Krishna, global director of the Digital Media Practice at Frost & Sullivan, said,“Enabling a TV Everywhere experience is complex to say the least, especially as you try to integrate the content value chain from creation to multi-platform distribution. The challenge stems from trying to integrate different types of content, formats, and systems into a seamless and collaborative workflow - which can be expensive and time intensive. Avid Interplay Pulse helps overcome many of these traditional challenges by providing a platform that empowers journalists, producers, and other content stakeholders to publish directly to multiple platforms simultaneously. In doing so, it accelerates cycle time while gaining workflow efficiencies.”
The Atex Web CMS platform with Avid Interplay Pulse integration is available immediately. For more information, please contact info[.]atex.com.
