CGI Showcased Innovations For Remote And Field Newsroom And Radio Broadcasting At NAB 2022

CGI, a leading newsroom and radio system provider in Europe, highlighted how its array of new media solutions is solving the critical challenges of modern broadcasters and radio stations, as TV meets radio and merges with online and social media.

“Post pandemic, workflows across news organizations have changed. With team members now looking to be able to work remotely or in a hybrid/on-prem digital workspace, the need for effective tools that empower employee flexibility is becoming more urgent,” says Michael Thielen, Vice President, Radio Solutions at CGI.

The new innovations CGI presented at NAB include:

  • NewsBoard - With its modern and unified web user interface, OpenMedia NewsBoard enables journalists and editorial teams to organize their story centric planning and production processes from anywhere. The highly customizable architecture allows newsrooms to adapt their systems to their individual needs. Free configurable Board and widget structure supports transparency in dynamic collaboration within distributed teams. NewsBoard comes with a completely re-designed architecture, a modern, intuitive User Interface that is fully modular and is Cloud-friendly. It’s one further step to re-design of the OpenMedia platform, that CGI’s leading newsroom solution is currently undergoing to better meet future requirements.
  • ReporterApp – The ReporterApp for Android and iOS allows reporters in the field to automatically stay connected to their newsroom at all times, wherever they are in the world. Built on a cloud-native architecture and fully integrated with OpenMedia, field journalists and remote workers now have all the tools within reach to research multiple sources including agency wire feeds; scan events and topics; check contact details and collaborate on content.
