Ross integrates OverDrive v2.0 with Avid iNEWS

Ross Video has announced the integration of the OverDrive v2.0 production control system with the Avid iNEWS newsroom computer system.
The integration streamlines workflow and gives a more consistent live news production.
OverDrive is a flexible production control system that enables touch screen control over the devices used in a production environment. OverDrive integrates with the Ross Synergy SD and MD/X series of production switchers, leveraging their control interfaces over video servers, VTRs, DDRs, audio mixers, robotic cameras, routers, still stores and more.
The Avid iNEWS newsroom computer system is an advanced system that provides journalists with all the tools necessary to create, organise and deliver news broadcasts right from their desktop. With advanced machine control, the ability to store CGs with scripts, automated ingest of newswires and stories, and seamless integration with Avid editing systems, the Avid iNEWS newsroom computer system continues to set the standards for newscast accuracy and ease of use.
OverDrive version 2 provides a MOS interface to the Avid iNEWS system through the Avid MOS gateway. The integration also features an OverDrive ActiveX plug-in that sits on the Avid iNEWS desktop. This MOS interface enables production elements, such as switcher effects, DVE effects and robotic camera moves to be placed directly into the rundown. The interface provides a live link from the iNEWS rundown to the OverDrive production rundown. Changes made in the iNEWS system are immediately reflected in OverDrive, allowing for the most up-to-date material to be used in the production.
“The integration of OverDrive with the Avid iNEWS system provides customers with a powerful news production control solution,” said OverDrive Product Manager, Brad Rochon, “Our experience working with Avid on this project was very positive, and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”
