As new forms of media create new ways for people to record and consume information, those of us in the business of broadcast graphics and asset management face the inevitable question: Are these new capabilities and new forms of content a help or a hindrance to broadcasters and their audiences? My answer is simple. When we give producers real tools that seamlessly integrate into their workflows, when their use becomes a fundamental part of telling the story, audience engagement and understanding is dramatically enhanced.
News Xchange is proud to present video highlights produced by The Associated Press, the essential global news network, delivering fast, unbiased news from every corner of the world to all media platforms and formats. See the video highlights here.
