Hoy of Advanced Systems Group
says FCP X will be significant, as will Lion.
One facet of broadcasting that is undergoing great change is the newsroom.
Although many broadcasters are dealing with an HD upgrade, that's not really where the radical changes are happening.
From acquisition to delivery, mobile devices are changing the way that news is created and consumed.
Hoy, president of the Advanced Systems Group
(ASG), has been involved in the roll-out of many newsroom systems and has a wide experience of all manner of file-based workflows.
Hoy commented "FCP X will be significant, as will Lion.
"We see that vendors are figuring out how to integrate with social media and what tools they will provide to enable that integration," Van Hoy
This rapid change in the news business is giving headaches to traditional engineers, who are being made to feel left behind as new media technology accelerates away from them.
And it's not just engineers; station management is also trying to figure out how to pay for these developments and to monetize them.
Hoy says, "Higher wireless bandwidth is enabling some remarkable workflows.
We are seeing the rise of the video journalist, the writer/shooter/interviewer/producer.
The tools are enabling it more and more.
added that journalists coming out of school today are being trained to use the full gamut of communication, adding to broadcast skills the use of web streaming, mobile and social networking.
Offering advice to a station looking to embrace this new world, Van Hoy
said, "The most important thing in planning any new workflow is to look outside your organization to peers or consulting groups that have done it on many different platforms and many different deployments so that you can learn from their experiences.
