The Hmedia WireServer is a Linux based software to handle text feeds in any format. Each broadcast company has to manage incoming news. Usually there are different channels (FTP, email, serial connected devices, etc.) and different formats (XML, IPTC7, ANPA, CSV, etc.) to deal with. All these files and streams must be converted into a specific target format depending the concrete NRCS system.
Our Wireserver delivers all steps for such a conversation process. Therefore it contains a couple of modules. For each input channel there is one receiver and one parser, respectively. Additionally there is one transfer process for each system where the final data have to deploy to. Of course you can specify which data from which channel have to go to which destination system. Picture 1 depict the data flow for a sample configuration with two Avid iNEWS™ systems.
THe WireServer can act as datachanger in different scenarios. Whenever you need to convert one (especially non-XML) dataformat into another one in realtime you can do this with our WireServer.
