Case Study: SWR


Case Study: SWR and OpenMedia



The level of studio automation should be increased significantly and even easier to use. The editorial personnel should be put in the position to visualise the “drama” of the news show without a specialised technical knowledge.


OpenMedia STUDIO DIRECTOR places the story at the centre, dealing with technical workflows and allowing the dramatic composition to be automatically added as stories are created. Pre-created templates for studio and show design are available.


By extending MOS integration with studio automation software, SCISYS Media Solution’s OpenMedia has combined the power of studio automation with the running order.



+ Helps increase the level of studio automation

+ Ensuring dramatic diversity
+ Quick reaction to changing audience needs
+ Pre-prepared templates reduce human errors
+ Fully integrated with OpenMedia
+ Fast and easy to use
