Press release, Bergen, Norway, May 16 2022
7Mountains announces the addition of its story-centric newsroom tool, Dina, to the Grass Valley Media Universe. Opening new applications, a journalist working in Dina can now access their media assets in Grass Valley’s GV AMPP operating system for cloud-based live production directly from the Dina web browser interface. The integrated and easy-to-use interface runs on cloud-native platforms. Dina’s on-premise MOS gateway will allow for MOS-based workflows with AMPP.
“The Dina and GV AMPP solution is a perfect match for anyone who needs intelligent, cloud-native production solutions. At the same time, they equip their journalists and storytellers with an integrated user experience for all their needs, available from anywhere with an Internet connection”, says Mads Grønbæk, CTO of 7Mountains. “Through this partnership, we are combining the reach of AMPP and the expertise of the Grass Valley team with our proven newsroom product that enables users to get breaking news to air, quickly and efficiently.”
“Due to the demands of 24-hour news studios, news production teams need technologies with user-friendly interfaces, quickly manage getting news to air and help simplify and streamline processes,” said Drew Martin, Technical Product Manager, Grass Valley. “Members of the GV Media Universe Alliance work together to provide new cloud-enabled solutions that run on Grass Valley’s open AMPP operating system. The integration with Dina will be the launch of the first newsroom system that runs on AMPP and strongly positions our news customers to transition to the future of media by providing access to the newsroom from anywhere with a browser.”
Dina changes how journalists work with a new approach to breaking a story, story collaboration and to multi-platform publishing. Dina is built on modern, web-based technologies and runs in the cloud. Customers of Dina are, amongst others, British GB News, Swizz Canal9 | Kanal9, Danish TV2 Fyn, and Australian OTT channel ausbiz. Learn more about Dina on the 7Mountains website here.
