New York’s Daily News has contracted with Atex for a combined content management and digital asset management system to support all digital and print publishing, streamlining newsroom workflows with a media-neutral environment.
The selection “enables users to access data effortlessly, regardless of where that data may physically reside,” Daily News President and CEO Bill Holiber said in a statement. “That flexibility allows us to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs without affecting the quality of the content and products we produce.”
Editors will have one system for all media types, including tablets and mobile devices, making content more accessible and speeding creation and editing of text, photos, graphics, audio and video, according to Atex.
By combining and organizing published articles, photos, digital and print pages in a single database, the integrated Atex digital asset management system will allow users to search the entire archive from a common interface, making it easier to find and repurpose content.
“The Daily News will have an agile newsroom environment that provides a single view of all live and archived content, with the ability to efficiently publish to print editions, NYDailyNews.com, as well as mobile and e-reader channels,” said Atex Senior Vice President, Peter Marsh.
