Avid has integrated its MediaCentral content platform with CGI’s OpenMedia, enabling news production teams to work and collaborate remotely without needing to change their newsroom solution.

MediaCentral is already integrated with AP ENPS and Octopus newsroom computer systems.


The move adds support for additional third-party NRCS

“Avid’s innovation strategy for newsrooms centres on driving more openness to help customers get more performance out of their infrastructure. By opening up MediaCentral to a wider range of newsrooms, we’re bringing the platform’s extensive capabilities right to journalists’ fingertips,” said Raul Alba, director of product management, Avid.

“They can get started straight away – without extensive training, loss of productivity, or any complications associated with deploying a new NRCS – and gain the ability to create better content faster directly within the systems they already rely on.”
