Use case description

The editorial staff produces news content media clips in a newsroom editing workflow. The news content media clips are enriched by metadata to be used by automated graphics. The news channel playlist does not contain individual news clips, just a definition of a block with content selection and prioritization rules. The content is uploaded automatically from the newsroom editing workflow environment, along with the clip metadata used for selection/prioritization and secondary graphics. The newsroom system operator may break the scheduled content with a live feed following the live event calendar in the newsroom system. The live break is initiated from the newsroom system using the open API of the playout solution.
