London, UK (April 20, 2016) – Autoscript, a Vitec Videocom brand, is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Sony to produce an original automated newsroom workflow. Through this exciting new collaboration, Autoscript’s Winplus teleprompting software and Sony’s ELC control system have been integrated to improve operational efficiency and reduce the chances of human error.

“Newsroom workflows depend on accuracy and speed, and when Sony approached us about an integrated solution we immediately recognized the benefits,” said Robin Brown, Autoscript Product Manager.  “Our WinPlus software is integrated with more newsroom systems than any other prompting solution, and it was a natural extension to develop an integration with Sony’s leading ELC playout system.”

Sony's live production control automation system, ELC, manages all newsroom control functions from a dedicated operator position. These include video and sound sources, studio cameras and audio, playout servers, DDRs, and graphic devices. Now, integration with Autoscript’s leading WinPlus Newsroom Prompting software adds control of the script and the prompter rundown to that list.

In combination with all leading newsroom systems, the Sony ELC will launch the correct rundown and start position into WinPlus. This removes the additional step of the prompter operator coordinating with the producer and manually selecting the correct script for broadcast. In a busy, live production environment an efficient and accurate workflow is essential. This collaboration between two of the world’s leading production equipment providers is an innovative time-saver that helps optimize productivity and reduce errors.
