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!”
Cloud media management with Mimir
At Canal9 / Kanal9 they use Mimir for their cloud archiving for automatic logging using Artificial Intelligence and for advanced search.
The Canal9 / Kanal9 teams says:
“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.”
At Canal9 / Kanal9 DiNA is set up for multi-platform publishing with an integrated solution delivered by Mediability.
With a setup for multi-platform publishing DiNA has connectors to linear television through MOS, to social media channels, such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and to YouTube.
Next for Canal9 / Kanal9 will also be to set up a publishing workflow from DiNA and to their CMS system.
