Raycom Standardizes on Grass Valley EDIUS
Will use nonlinear editing system in 900 seats at 52 stations

As a result of the decision to standardize operations around the 6.5 version, the nonlinear editing (NLE) system will be installed at 900 seats at its stations. The EDIUS Pro 6.5 will be integrated with the Bitcentral media content management and Panasonic P2 media formats used at the stations it owns and manages.
Any Raycom stations using a previous version of EDIUS will be upgraded to the 6.5 so that all edit seats are standardized across the organization.
Raycom noted that loudness metering, the software's ability to handle closed captioning, the USB dongle-free software licensing solution, and the ability to deploy EDIUS Pro 6.5 for both desktop and laptop field editors were key reasons for the decision.
The station group also expects that the non-linear editing system will help simplify the way their content is produced and delivered across multiple platforms.
"All of our stations have been using EDIUS 5.5 for a while and love it," said David Folsom, VP and CTO for Raycom Media. "The release of EDIUS Pro 6.5 gave us the perfect opportunity to not only standardize our NLE systems across our organization, but to also address specific production needs. The fact that we have the same editing ability in all of our stations and our journalists' laptops makes our workflows much more efficient."
