Aveco’s Story Designer app for Avid’s MediaCentral | Cloud UX media workflow platform has been certified by Avid to integrate Aveco’s ASTRA Studio News Production Automation with Avid MediaCentral | Newsroom Management. Story Designer allows journalists to insert production cues to define the style of a story, together with technical parameters such as cameras and graphics. The story is then produced live under control of Aveco’s ASTRA Studio based on those journalist-provided production cues.
The app provides journalists more control of how their story is produced on air. The company’s story templates—once defined, radically simplify news operations—specifying every detail of story timing, camera positions, graphics, clips, backdrop videos, even virtual rooms. However, Story Designer is a strong tool allowing changes or updates to the template to give an individual story a unique look and feel.
