Etere Nunzio Newsroom empowers Media Enterprises with the best tools to develop a story from the initial idea to the final broadcast, all from a single interface. Nunzio Newsroom is a broadcast newsroom software that is easy to use, helping managers control overall daily operations, guiding journalists to prepare their stories, and enabling editors to edit (e.g. voice-over) and deliver news stories quickly.
Furthermore, with Etere Nunzio Playout, Fujaira TV users can easily manage news feeds’ NDI, SDI and IP playout quickly, precisely and efficiently. With its support for virtualised environments, users can integrate Etere Playout into any workflow. The layout controls multiple video server channels in rundown via Etere ETX or any external video servers.
Additionally, the project includes a Nunzio Newsroom Android licence that allows journalists and editors to manage their news workflows on their mobile devices even when on the move. The mobile-optimised interface enables users to access core features quickly to meet the demands of fast-paced news operations. All users of the Nunzio Newsroom Mobile access the platform with a secured login. Once logged in, users can select any task and perform changes in real time, including preparing, checking and approving stories. The interface also features an agenda feature that allows users to select any task including scheduling, reviewing and approving stories.
Etere works closely with Fujaira TV’s operators and our project system integrator, Pharaon Broadcast SAL, to deliver a strategic framework of workflows across the end-to-end Newsroom operations at Fujaira TV.

It can manage NDI/SDI/IP output and multiple graphics insertions.
Etere Media Manager manages digital content transfer, copy, and movement from one level to another based on customisable workflow rules. It integrates with Etere Transcoder to provide encoding and decoding between media formats, conversions of bit rates, and change of video resolutions to meet lower resolution screens. Etere Transcoder also provides a flexible workflow action that can decode, encode, transcode, mux, demux and filter almost any media used in the broadcast industry.
Etere Proxy Browsing allows users to browse, select and edit any clip with secondary events. It can be accessed from an unlimited number of browsing stations.
Etere ETX-L Live Loudness Control prevents excessive audio jumps and provides automatic audio control using ITU-R BS: 1770/ITU-R BS.1771 and peak value analysis. Etere ETX-L Live Loudness Control is the most versatile software for correcting common errors and avoiding fines due to excessive transmission volume. With Etere, it is also possible to perform a preliminary calculation of the output volume through the loudness statistics of a specific broadcast day.
The station operators can also access Etere Web for all core functionalities of the system, allowing them to drive their workflows from wherever they are, even while on the move. The mobile-optimised platform is accessible on smart devices, including tablets, laptops and mobile phones.
Etere Web Floating Licence is the user licence to access Etere Web. Etere Web can only be accessed through an authenticated login. With the floating licence, licenses can be shared among more users.
