The Associated Press (AP) ENPS news production system team has partnered with workflow developer Latakoo to enable assignment tracking and file delivery across both company platforms.
Paul Adrian, Latakoo CEO, said the new relationship takes advantage of the capabilities of Latakoo’s recently launched Manifest, an intelligent collaboration tool that facilitates the discovery, tracking and request of media files, making it easier for broadcasters and other content producers to share and work together on stories between regions and markets.
The integration of the two platforms means assignments in ENPS can be easily matched with video files delivered by Latakoo, thereby making the tracking of stories and their related files more efficient and intuitive. A user will know exactly when the assigned story is dispatched to the crew, when the finished story arrives, and with Latakoo automation, when the file is automatically delivered to newsroom systems, according to Adrian.
“Remote production is more important than ever (and) all those dispersed users still need a way to know in real time that an idea or story has been assigned or the file has been uploaded or reviewed,” added Adrian. “With Manifest, they have direct access to the story from birth to broadcast and with our collaboration with ENPS, they can find that story in Latakoo or ENPS.”
