CGI showcases story-centric news workflows and IT services portfolio at NAB Show New York

CGI will showcase the latest updates to its impressive array of media solutions on Booth 1527 at NAB Show New York, October 19-20. Designed to help solve the critical challenges of modern broadcasters in the North American market and beyond, including the increasingly urgent need for effective cybersecurity and robust remote production workflows, these solutions are ideally placed to help broadcast newsrooms navigate an era of dynamic change as the merger between television, online, and social accelerates. 

CGI is committed to enabling story-centric workflows that bridge across all delivery platforms, and will showcase features in NYC such as the integration of its OpenMedia newsroom system with Microsoft Teams. This will allow all communication and data relating to a specific story or subject to be viewed directly in OpenMedia, simplifying collaboration within journalistic teams.

Visitors to the CGI booth will also be able to see how the OpenMedia NewsBoard has been rebuilt from the ground up to enable journalists and editorial teams to organize story-centric planning and production processes from anywhere. Meanwhile, the new cloud-native ReporterApp for Android and iOS allows reporters in the field to automatically stay connected to their newsroom and collaborate on content. 


With its newsroom solutions now part of one of the largest IT consulting groups in the world, CGI is ideally positioned to offer a wide portfolio of IT consulting and services covering any aspect of a broadcaster’ day-to-day operations. This includes industry-leading expertise in the modernization of company-wide IT infrastructures, digital transformation project planning and execution, cutting-edge work on innovation and automation, and the ability to protect critical infrastructure for national broadcasters and other media companies through a dedicated team of 1700 cybersecurity professionals.
