Mimir will be used in an integrated PAM workflow with Adobe Premiere Pro. All IP infrastructure will be based fully on NDI.

“We are of course very proud to play a key role in the birth of a 24/7 news channel in the UK market. Conceptually, we believe GB News will set a new global course on operating models for news channels.”

 «It is thrilling to see our solutions at the heart of a brand new 24/7 live news operation. This is especially true in a venture so clearly geared towards the future in terms of both software defined workflows and NDI infrastructure.»
