Transition to the cloud the easy way

Move your old NRCS to cloud-native with Dina Rundown

Winner in the Best of Show awards at IBC 2022

We have launched the perfect match for broadcasters ready to move to modern web-based workflows, Software-as-a-Service, and the cloud. Dina Rundown is built on the proven technologies of Dina, a full-fledged story-centric newsroom tool.  


Why move to a cloud NRCS?

"Many broadcasters still use newsroom systems (NRCS) built 20-25 years ago on on-premises technologies. These are old applications with a lot of technical debt. Attempting to reduce costs often only means moving the infrastructure for the NRCS to an off-premise location. We have built Dina Rundown to help broadcasters transition to the cloud and instantly benefit from a solution built for access from anywhere in a web browser that scales and requires no internal maintenance"

End of life for old newsroom system

The NRCS is a central part of the entire capacity of a newsroom, where changes in tools and systems affect large parts of a broadcast operation.

The announcement of the end-of-life of old newsroom systems has put many broadcasters in limbo. Migrating from one NRCS to another solution that locks one deeper into single vendors or platforms is not the right way forward. Modernising, both on the infrastructural side and for the tools used in the everyday operations of a newsroom is becoming increasingly important.
