Afonz brings together the best of ANNOVA, arvato Systems, Chyron and Harmonic

ALFONZ all for news

By integrating four state-of-the-art news products we made an identical solution for news and sports production.

Based on ANNOVA Systems OpenMedia newsroom system, arvato Systems Media Asset Management, ClipJOCKEY playout control, Chyron CAMIO and Lyric PRO based graphic systems and Omneon MediaCenter as a videoserver with CarbonCoder file delivery: Alfonz gains the effectiveness of production providing the best tools all along the workflow.

The fun behind the challenge was to make from these enterprise products an efficient but still competitive package. As we believe we could match this goal we named our package Alfonz, which is a short form of All For News.
