Launch of the new editorial tools at Canal9 / Kanal9

Launch of the new editorial tools at Canal9 / Kanal9

Canal9 / Kanal9 went live, September 7th, with new editorial tools and a redesigned workflow from ingest to playout for two shows, one for their French speaking audience and one for their German speaking audience.

From the day of the launch, the Canal9 / Kanal9 team wrapped up a successful project with an announcement on LinkedIn:

“From ingest to broadcast through NRCS, the workflow has been redesigned to provide maximum flexibility for journalists and production teams at Canal9 / Kanal9.” – Joël Antonin, Information Technology Engineer

Follow the link above for the LinkedIn article about the project at Canal 9/ Kanal9 (article is in both French and English).

The NRCS of the future

Canal9/ Kanal9 has chosen DiNA as their newsroom control room system (NRCS). Quoting Joël Antonin, Information Technology Engineer at Canal9 / Kanal9 at the day of the launch:

“The most advanced NRCS (NewsRoom Computer System) makes its debut in the newsroom! Its name is DiNA and we owe this planning prodigy to a Norwegian team: 7Mountains. They not only work hand in hand with the MAM Grass Valley to manage the live shows playlist, but also coordinate ALL the publications on social medias and our websites. It is already unanimous!”

About DiNA 

DiNA is a story creation, planning and collaboration tool for journalists. It is a complete cloud based newsroom system allowing users to work from anywhere with an online connection.

With DiNA as the centrepiece of the newsroom, organisations avoid the costs associated with maintenance of on-premise equipment with all functions running in the cloud.

Cloud media management with Mimir

DiNA integrates with Mimir by our sister company Mjoll.

“Taking advantage of the experience of the best artificial intelligence of the moment (Amazon, Google and even Recapp), Mimir offers facial recognition, object recognition and a complete transcript of the sequence. Their search engine is extremely efficient. If a face appears in the 35 years of online archives, Mimir will know how to locate it in the video sequences. A real investigative tool for our journalists.”

Mimir is a browser based media management solution. It’s a tool for journalists and video editors, or anyone working with video, for automating the boring and time-consuming tasks, such as video and image metadata logging, speech-to-text transcription, multi-language translation amongst other things, using Artificial Intelligence.

The technical brief

CEO of ausbiz, Kylie Merritt: 

“When presented with the opportunity to build a newsroom from scratch we wanted to find intuitive, scalable platforms which would allow our journalists to focus on content, not systems”

(From the project announcement. Read full article here)

The ausbiz team were looking for a setup with 

  1. As little on premise architecture as possible
  2. A preference for cloud based, SaaS solutions to support cash flow and allow the architecture to be a flexible and scalable as possible.
  3. Contribution, storage, story creation, clipping and distribution in the cloud with as much automation of tasks as possible
  4. Editorial staff only;  no engineering staff

The solution - Workflow overview with DiNA and Mimir at the center of the production 

At the center of the news and video production workflows at ausbiz sits the cloud based newsroom system DiNA by 7Mountains and media management system Mimir by Mjoll.

Editors can choose to work with proxy files or high resolution material. With proxy the workflow files are 1-2% of original size and combining this with a central conform workflow, ausbiz has the ability to avoid expensive download costs with an efficient workflow for their editing.

Cloud editing in with Vimond IO

ausbiz uses Vimond IO as their cloud-based clipping system. It runs in a browser and the ausbiz editors use it for creating video clips with Vimond Live or Mimir as sources. 

Clips are transferred to Mimir via an integrated export module. 

See images of the Vimond IO interface below.

About Vimond IO

Vimond IO is a cloud-native editing solution. It requires no local software or remote connection and is easy to implement to existing workflows. Vimond IO integrates with Mimir for exporting video clips into the Mimir cloud media management system. 

Using AI to automate metadata logging

Mimir harnesses the power of market leading cognitive services from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google, IBM, Microsoft and others to automatically make media archives searchable. 

When ausbiz ingest videos in Mimir they use the Amazon Transcribe service to automatically convert speech to text and log this as metadata. They also use the Amazon Recognition AI service to detect objects in videos and images for metadata logging. These AI services, amongst many others, are integrated in Mimir.

The ausbiz team can at any time choose which service they want to use to automate their metadata logging for transcriptions, translations and numerous other AI services.

AWS is also the backbone of cloud storage for auzbiz.

A Milestone for taking newsrooms to the cloud and for story-centric workflows

TV stations world-wide have followed the development of a project at Danish TV 2/Fyn and their transition from a traditional newsroom solution to an all-cloud workflow and setup.

Yesterday at around 5 PM, TV 2/Fyn went live with their first news bulletin from DiNA, the cloud newsroom and story tool from 7Mountains and with cloud media management solution Mimir, by Mjoll.

From the announcement of the project in 2019, TV 2/Fyn’s Head of Innovation and Production, Michael Jensen, has generously shared insights of their planned big move towards cloud-only. In an interview at IBC 2019, Jensen said: “Our philosophy at TV 2/Fyn has always been to put journalists and storytelling first, and technology second” (read full article here.)

DiNA sits at the heart of the newsroom at TV 2/Fyn as the core tool for news planning, creation and publishing. Another central tool for the news production, is video and media platform Mimir, Together, the cloud solutions from 7Mountains and Mjoll power the entire news production. 

One tool for all with a true story centric workflow

With the integrated DiNA and Mimir solutions, TV 2/Fyn has now taken a true step into a full story-centric workflow.

What does story-centric really mean? This means one tool for all platforms, including creating, planning and publishing of stories to a CMS, to linear TV, and to all social media channels.

The journalists working in DiNA can prepare all their content, including text, videos and images, for all platforms AND publish to linear TV via an integrated rundown module, to their website CMS platform via easy-to-use templates, to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and more. All is done from within one unified user interface; DiNA.

With a story-centric workflow, there is no need to jump from tool to tool for creating content for multiple platforms, enabling the journalist to work much more efficiently.

Smart media management

Mimir is the media management solution powering the news production at TV 2/Fyn.

Mimir automates the process of speech-to-text transcriptions, translations, persons, objects and labels detection, events and more, using AI technology. This gives the journalist a search tool, within DiNA or from any web interface, where they can find the videos and images that they need for their stories.

With Mimir the journalist can, as an example, narrow down a search for spoken words in a transcript, with a specific person or persons present and/or with a specific object.

Choosing the right systems integrator

The solutions are sold through and delivered by systems integrator and video experts, Mediability, the Nordic partner of 7Mountains and Mjoll.

“We congratulate the team at TV 2/Fyn with the successful launch. They have now taken a leading position in innovating their newsroom workflows”, says Knut Alfred Andersen, CEO of 7Mountains.
