NewsTouch Goes Mobile
MediaPower NewsTouch adds support for Microsoft Surface Pro 2 as input device
Singapore (June 20, 2014) – MediaPower announced today at BroadcastAsia 2014 that its flagship product for multi-touch professional multimedia broadcast presentation NewsTouch, now supports Microsoft Surface Pro 2 as a mobile input device.
NewsTouch is MediaPower’s award-winning standalone appliance dedicated to the live production of press clippings, web content, and recorded and live media files in the studio. It is a touch-based, multimedia presentation system for a live broadcasting environment. Using an electronic multitouch board, comments, markings, indications or drawings can easily be added to images, videos, or web pages, making it an extremely useful solution for shows like sports, weather forecasts, or news. Due to its easy to use interface and innovative drawing tools, the journalist or anchorman is given more control of a news program or presentation, independent of a production crew.
Since it was introduced in 2013, NewsTouch only supported touchscreen monitors in the studio directly connected to the NewsTouch server. Now with support for professional tablets starting with Microsoft Surface Pro 2, NewsTouch is more flexible and convenient to use, more than ever. By using a Surface Pro 2, journalists or news anchors can now freely move around during their presentations. Some news anchors are also already used to using tablets in their news reports, thereby making it easier for them to adopt NewsTouch as another one of their tools in delivering compelling and dynamic reports.
"We are committed to helping our customers improve the way they carry out their services,” said MediaPower CEO Marcello Dellepiane. “By delivering beneficial turnkey products like NewsTouch, and continuously innovating with new useful features, we enable broadcasters and other media providers to address the demands of a highly dynamic market and remain competitive.”
NewsTouch is currently being showcased at the MediaPower booth 5L4-05 at BroadcastAsia 2014, from June 17 to 20, at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. Visit the MediaPower booth or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
