What's Hot
"We produce about 48-and-a-half hours of news a week. That is a LOT of news, so products like EDIUS are really important in terms of making sure that we get the workflow as efficient as we can. And we're doing it with about the same staff we did a lot less news with, earlier. So the efficiency of operations really makes a big difference"”

Dennis Milligan, News Director, WBTV
"If there's breaking news and you have no time to get something on the air, you just use the Source Browser and literally you could have video edited within seconds."

Leighton Grant, Chief Photographer, Raycom Media
"In addition to improved connectivity and GV STRATUS being a future-ready application, we chose this solution because it will also help us reduce operational costs and create a more agile production environment."

Gilvani Moletta, Technology Director at TV Cultura
