BeeKeeper, the newsroom automation control application is an automation control application for carrying out a set of instructions in WASP3D. It is a gateway that provides a standardized medium for communication between WASP3D and various newsroom and production automation systems NRCS. Television stations are often challenged by applications that do not communicate well with networked workflows and don’t share metadata properly.
BeeKeeper is a vendor-agnostic application developed for seamless integration of the WASP3D workflow with production automation and newsroom control systems (NRCS) such as Aveco, B4M, Dalet, ENPS, Harris D series, Avid iNEWS, NorCom, Octopus, Omnibus, or any other such third party application.
BeeKeeper connects all of the participating systems to the WASP3D system. It is configured with dual IP interfaces and allows automation systems and WASP3D to interact with each other through communication protocols like MOS, GPI, TCP-IP as well as other standard integration methods.
With BeeKeeper, the flexibility and control over all external triggers can be automated. Tight integration with BeeKeeper, the broadcast automation software enables automation systems to control all the features of Sting Client: the on-air playout module of WASP3D. Users also have the option of pushing and controlling all or selected content to single or multiple channels by a single click. The beeKeeper can act as a backup playout application as it allows complete control of the on-air graphics playout.
