Newsrooms require speed and agility, and technology is a key factor in an organization’s ability to gather, verify, produce and distribute high quality news content, on multiple channels and in multiple formats. The expertise required to set up these workflows – to understand the options and make good choices for these generally tailor-made workflows – is highly specific.
To facilitate the exchange of ideas and learnings among EBU Members around newsroom-related workflows, the EBU News sub-committee IDEAS https://www.ebu.ch/groups/news/news-ideas and the EBU Technology & Innovation department have now established a new task group.
This task group will focus on the following main themes:
- Sharing success stories on specific workflows (e.g. for graphics, remote production, metadata annotation, etc.)
- Tools (e.g. performances, usability tests etc.) already integrated in the workflows
- Issues and barriers (e.g. organizational, technical, editorial, manual operation due to lack of automation, cost, interoperability, etc.)
- Challenges ahead, looking into the future (1, 3 and 5 years from now)
In order to participate, learn and contribute, simply join the Newsroom Workflows group.
