How nxtedition can help you…

Do you need an integrated solution that’s easy to learn and less prone to downtime?

Traditional broadcast methods requires a number of expensive individual systems purchased from a wide variety of vendors, all of which need to be connected to produce an output.

This fragile ecosphere is prone to downtime, separate service contracts and very long lead times on staff training.

nxtedition negates these issues by collecting all production tasks under a single user experience. From ingest through to on-air everyone sees the exact same user interface and therefore can easily understand every process within the production chain. The system can even “self-heal” by automatically starting a new function to replace a failed one, whilst the broadcast automation limits human interaction on key tasks reducing the chances of on-air errors.

nxtedition also adds creativity to productions by introducing features like 2-way social media interaction and live on-air data processing that would be impossible without a single integrated solution.

Proven in live environments

nxtedition powers Go’ Morgen & Go’ Aften on TV2 every morning & afternoon

Go ‘Morgen Danmark’ and Go ‘Aften Denmark are TV2’s flagship morning & evening shows, they are among the most popular shows in Denmark. Transmitted weekdays live from the central train station and from Tivoli in Copenhagen, the Go’ series presents news & current affairs with guest interviews, debates and panel discussions. In addition the output includes culture, food, entertainment & reviews of movies, books and games.

nxtedition has collaborated with Nordisk Film TV since 2010 and supplies the Go’ programs with software, hardware and support in the production of the shows.

Core modules


The core of the system shares a single common user interface

A scalable solution for ingesting live and scheduled footage into nxtedition. The ingest module records, transcodes and exports footage simultaneously while allowing for meta-data and tags to be added and making it instantly available within nxtedition. Media can also be automatically distributed to the cloud, web, social media and removable drives.

The core of nxtedition’s system is the hub which provides users with an intuitive interface for all of nxtedition’s modules and third party integrations. The hub is a contextually aware shell which enables users to create, organise and collaborate on productions within a single cross platform interface.

nxtedition play schedules and executes dynamic events generated from assets managed in other nxtedition modules. Using integration modules for cameras, lighting, video mixers, audio mixers, social feeds, video and graphics servers and much more, nxtedition play is next-gen broadcast automation to run media productions.

Additional modules

we tailor a solution to only what you need



The nxtedition script module provides a powerful toolset for writing, collaborating, sharing and organising scripts. Script can also interact with the other modules providing data for graphics, shotlists and videos as well as providing the prompters’ output. Script also generates the rundown for nxtedition play allowing script changes to flow through all aspects of the system right up to the moment that the story goes on air.


The prompt module provides the solution for controlling, editing and displaying scripts to presenters during production. With its multi-view capability the output can appear on tablets, screens and other devices simultaneously including via the cloud for mobile devices in the field. It’s designed to run both smoothly and accurately whether run by an operator or a presenter and our broadcast automation automatically real time synchs changes with nxtedition script.


Powered by CasparCG, graphics are generated based on pre-designed intelligent HTML5/CSS3.0 templates. Graphics can receive video, stills, text and other assets from any module within nxteditions broadcast automation or external sources through the nxtedition API. Realtime data received by the intelligent templates can respond directly live on air in real time.


The video module works with any video format for instantaneous video playback on cue. It includes on the fly real time transcoding, scaling and de- interlacing. In part powered by CasparCG, it also includes a built in hardware accelerated video mixer allowing for various DVE effects such as end credit squeeze and picture in picture. The output is a separate key and fill of any resolution up to 4k and is output scalable.


Integrating the power of gathering and publishing social media into the heart of the system uniquely allows nxtedition to seamlessly merge social channels inside a production. Social allows a user to moderate activity and then send selected posts, tweets and comments directly to screen. In reverse it also allows content generated during a production to be shared back through social channels making a genuine two-way social experience.


The nxtedition API enables powerful integration of external third-party systems directly into nxtedition solutions. This allows for iterative step by step installation into existing infrastructure. Also, by integrating existing systems directly into nxtedition a single focused work flow platform can be achieved within production environments.
