A few years ago, we were challenged with how to align multimedia stories across the ARD Network. In response, DAVID along with partners developed the WeConnect System.
The WeConnect project actually started much earlier with the idea that a story in a newsroom is a collection of “traditional” Radio items such as text and audio, and “new” items such as images, video, and data. So why not put everything under one umbrella, with a vendor independent interface and modern technical standards?
I’m now pleased to share that after several years of planning, developing and testing, the ARD WeConnect System went live on the night of the 1st of December 2020.
