NewsTicker is the undisputed leader in the ticker industry, having originated the market category. From the beginning, we have concentrated on making lower-fifth displays effortless for news producers, of high quality for engineers, and attractive to advertisers.
NewsTicker is an integrated suite of software that allows for seamless on-air transitions from the everyday NewsTicker modules to school closings, weather alerts and elections. It's a single application operating on a single server platform, so you don't have to fumble between multiple programs.
Producers use a web browser to access NewsTicker, so every PC in your station is ready to use it without having to install special software or service packs. Since everything is integrated into one application, and not independent programs you need to launch and run separately, it means that your staff doesn't have a learning curve every time emergencies pop up. The product you use everyday for news, sports, forecasts, and promotions, is the same product you use for breaking news, school closings, elections, and severe weather. It's a familiar interface for both the ordinary and extraordinary.
More than half of our clients have their display sponsored, with most of them recouping the entire cost within the first two quarters. NewsTicker gives you sponsorship flexibility like no other product on the market currently.
In fact, stations have switched off of applications from at least three other vendors citing lack of total sponsorship flexibility as one of the primary reasons for their move to NewsTicker.
Sponsor rotations are determined by a station's specific needs. This means you can easily sell multiple sponsorships and spread the time around. Best of all, the rotation can occur automatically with an integrated as-run reconciliation for posting into your traffic software for billing.
NewsTicker is built on a robust platform utilizing the power of the Red Hat® Linux® operating system -- the open source leader in enterprise operating systems. Newsroom Solutions backs all of our servers with complete system support so that your mission critical applications continue to run.
Through our exclusive Live Update feature, we provide you unattended automatic upgrades of the latest version, so you are never behind. We even initiate off-site nightly backups of your data onto our servers for quicker disaster recovery.
With our 1U rackmountable intelliCommander® device, your master control operator can bring NewsTicker on and off air without ever having to login to an application.
