Raycom has selected Grass Valley EDIUS Pro 6.5 as its nonlinear editing (NLE) system of choice for its news operations.

Headquartered in Montgomery, Ala., Raycom will integrate EDIUS Pro 6.5 with the Bitcentral media content management and Panasonic P2 media formats used at the stations it owns and manages. Any Raycom stations using a previous version of EDIUS will be upgraded to EDIUS Pro 6.5, so that all edit seats are standardized across the organization.

The company said the main considerations for selecting EDIUS Pro 6.5 was the software's loudness metering, its ability to handle closed captioning, the USB dongle-free software licensing solution and the ability to deploy EDIUS Pro 6.5 across the entire enterprise, including desktops and laptop field editors.

By using Grass Valley's EDIUS, Grass Valley said Raycom will be “one step closer to simplifying the way their content is produced and delivered across multiple platforms.”

“All of our stations have been using EDIUS 5.5 for a while and love it,” said David Folsom, VP-CTO of Raycom Media. “The release of EDIUS Pro 6.5 gave us the perfect opportunity to not only standardize our NLE systems across our organization, but to also address specific production needs. The fact that we have the same editing ability in all of our stations and our journalists’ laptops makes our workflows much more efficient.”

The rollout will begin with Raycom bench testing at each station for verification.

“When getting a story to air fast can mean the difference between being a market leader or being a market follower, EDIUS delivers,” said Tim Thorsteinson, president-CEO of Grass Valley. “With real-time editing, nothing comes close to the performance of EDIUS. And now, the entire Raycom organization will be able to benefit from the power of EDIUS and the business practicality of standardizing on a single editing platform.”

Brand Connections

EDIUS is software-upgradable between versions (Neo, Express, Pro, and Elite), so that users can choose the exact functionality they want.

Grass Valley will be exhibiting at the NAB show in Las Vegas, April 8-11, in the South Hall lower level, booth SL206.

    Easily fall’s best broadcast network comedy pilot, NBC’s The Good Place offers a clever high-concept premise that’s complemented with intelligent, sometimes absurdist humor. Created by Michael Schur, co-creator of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, The Good Place is a highly serialized series that’s essentially set in heaven and stars Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. NBC made five episodes of The Good Place available for review, and the show not only holds up, but also it improves, deepening characters that initially feel one-note and frequently leaving viewers guessing with cliffhanger endings to many of the episodes. The combination of snappy dialogue and winning but flawed characters makes The Good Place a great bet for fans of smart TV comedy.

    Pitch has swagger, for good reason. It gets the big things right; the Fox drama about the first female baseball player in the Major Leagues is one of the year’s most assured and exciting debuts. But part of what impresses about the pilot is also the way it confidently strings together so many small but telling details. Ginny (Kylie Bunbury) is the first woman to be called up from the minors to the big leagues, and no show since Friday Night Lights has done a better job of portraying the internal and external pressures that weigh heavily on young athletes asked to do much more than merely succeed on the field. Pitch will likely do a good job of getting viewers to root for it. The hope is that the show won’t be an impressive, short-lived curiosity, but rather a long-term phenomenon.

    In a fall TV season that’s already making a splash for championing diverse, distinctive voices in an array of projects that they created, wrote, and starred in, Better Things on FX stands out. The show is created by, written by, and starsPamela Adlon. She plays Sam Fox, the single mother of three daughters modeled after her own reality-show-ready experience raising three girls in Los Angeles following a divorce. Sam is also, like Adlon, a working actress — on shows both raunchy, a la Californication, and animated for children, like her role on Recess. It’s a refreshingly blunt take on single motherhood without sacrificing the warmth of parental love, portraying the dance between selfishness and selflessness that’s at the heart of being a parent — especially one weathering the hormonal fireworks of a household of four women at different ages.

    The fall TV season doesn’t count as much as it used to — we already know that. But no matter how many retreads the broadcast networks throw at viewers in the next few months, this fall will be memorable because of the premiere of Atlanta on Tuesday, Sept. 6, on FX. The half-hour comedy created by and starring Donald Glover (Community), simply and brilliantly recalibrates our expectations of what a TV comedy is and how black lives are portrayed on the medium.

    The second reboot of the 1980s John Candy movie Uncle Buck, bumped by ABC from midseason, has the same tired jokes you'll find on any second-rate sitcom. Too bad, because Mike Epps is appealing and ABC would be wise to keep him around for future shows, but there’s just not enough to this show to suggest it will last past summer. It also airs against NBC’s America’s Got Talent, summer’s No. 1 program on broadcast, which may make it even harder to find an audience.

    Bryan Cranston brings his Tony Award-winning interpretation of President Lyndon B. Johnson to television in an adaptation of the Robert Schenkkan play All the Way, and it’s still quite a sight to behold, just as it was on Broadway in 2014. Nothing beats witnessing this kind of larger-than-life portrayal onstage, of course. But the television version, presented by HBO, offers plenty of rewards, allowing Cranston to work the close-ups and liberating him from the confines of a theater set. Cranston’s performance is a gem — in his hands, this accidental president comes across as an amazing bundle of contradictions, someone who seems at once too vulgar for the job and just right for it.
