All network level products require standard Ethernet network interface cards in standard PC computers.

          Comprompter systems do not require any proprietary hardware, firmware or custom operating systems but do have some specific hardware for video encoding.

 

NewsKing News and Automation is modular in nature, allowing users to add system features and functions as their newsroom and production needs evolve. All Add-on software modules are a part of our MASTER Series of automation features and require the Comprompter Newsroom software, networking, and hardware as noted.
