Tria News | News Playout Server

Tria News is designed precisely for today’s rapid-fire live television newsroom environments. Get your late-breaking news stories on-air quickly and effectively with this news playout server and the Ross newsroom ecosystem.

Newsroom Codec Support

Handles the news-gathering native codec media files typically found in newsrooms: XDCAM 35; XDCAM 50; and AVC-I 50. These codecs ensure a fast and highly efficient workflow across your entire newsroom solution.

Part of a Larger MOS Story

Tria News and Ross Streamline is the cornerstone of an efficient MOS workflow for news media playout—part of the most comprehensive, seamlessly-integrated MOS newsroom solution offered from a single vendor—Ross!

Organized Storage

Compelling news coverage is built on footage, and the perfect companion to Tria News is Ross Streamline—which easily manages your footage, distributes it across your network, and creates rundown playlists for your live news shows.

Four-Channel Flexibility

Efficiently present newsroom media assets from four independent PGM playout channels. Need full playout redundancy? Streamline makes it easy: media and rundown playlists can be automatically duplicated across two Tria News servers—for complete ‘playout peace of mind’ during all your live news shows.

Fast-Breaking News

Get all your late-breaking news stories on-air faster than ever before, using baseband record and media file export tools built right into Tria News. Your edit suites can access these captured clips from—and publish finished news stories directly to—your central NAS. Tria News then plays all stories directly from the NAS under Streamline control.

Live On-Air Reliability

Tria News is built upon the rock-solid Abekas server platform, which is designed for consistent, 24/7 operation. In the event of unforeseen circumstances, Tria News and Streamline’s optional redundant media mirroring with manual override control helps to avoid disruptions to your live news shows.
