invested heavily in the OpenMedia platform. Corus and its Global News division

workflow approach of the OpenMedia planning system, rolling out to all of its stations
and locations across Canada as the central tool for its newsroom planning and
“OpenMedia is helping us completely transform our News organization. It’s bringing us together, across workflows, platforms and locations,” says Geoff Franklin, Director, News Architecture at Corus. “It’s a flexible platform that allows us to build our own technological and editorial workflows and connect to other third party systems, like Grass Valley Go, making it effective for the people using it, which is reflected in the final product.”
