Case Study: Phoenix


Reporters covering news and special events needed a fast and simple way of exchanging ideas and stories. Combining sophisticated planning features with the newsroom system was also a key requirement.


Planners across the three editorial departments are now able to work together on a single rundown: OpenMedia’s advanced rights- management and workflow-management ensure that content is properly handled to avoid potential clashes.


OpenMedia serves as the bi-directional meta-database and planning system for the entire workflow of the three editorial departments: each department has their own views and access levels to the information in the system, depending to individual requirements.





+ Ability to collaborate at story-level

+ Shared planning system

+ Flexible workflows improving reaction
to breaking news

+ Continuity of performance, as existing data
was transferred across from legacy system
