Crispin Technology Powers CBS Interactive

CBS News Interactive purchased a fully redundant system to run its news playout and ENPS rundown.

CBS Sports has relied on Crispin for nearly 20 years. Now, Crispin can announce that its systems and technology are also behind-the-scenes at CBS News Interactive.

CBS News and CBS Interactive are using Crispin’s NewsWheel product to produce a 24 hour online streaming news station. This allows anyone with internet access to view live and recorded CBS news coverage from computers, TVs and mobile devices.

CBSN is using Crispin to control playout devices, monitor the rundown and toss to and from commercials, triggered by SCDI tones. Crispin marks in and out points on programs as they play out, which CBSN then showcases as on-demand videos on the left side of the airing video.
