Broadcast technology vendor Pinnacle Systems has sealed a deal with The CNN News Group to develop and install advanced news editing solutions over the coming year at CNN Center in Atlanta and CNN's New York News Bureau.

CNN is currently using Pinnacle's Liquid Blue editing systems in New York for daily news production and later this year plans to integrate both Vortex and Liquid Blue editors into the Palladium shared storage network.

The systems are set to be part of CNN's integrated compressed digital production infrastructure ready to support the world's busiest 24 hours per day, 7 days a week broadcast news operation.

In both CNN locations, Pinnacle's Vortex News system will create a state-of-the-art mirrored server resource that ties together Vortex 200 journalist edit stations, Vortex 1000 and Vortex Blue non-linear editing systems, Pinnacle's content capture stations and playback decoders.

The system will make use of 10/100 Base T and Gigabit Ethernet technologies and support a network of Vortex MediaCore servers and RAID-compliant disk arrays managed by a Vortex MetaData Control System.
