For effective work with newswires items, Cinegy Newswire Browser provides the interface to search, browse and read all incoming news items in the Cinegy Archive database.
All news items are placed in a separate folder in the explorer tree and are structured by the agency folder, category, year, and month. The newswire provider name corresponds to the respective root folder inside the Newswires sub-tree. The structure may vary depending on the selected content provider:
Double-click the news item for the corresponding day to view the imported news content for that date:
Selecting the month or year subfolder in the explorer tree loads all news items for the corresponding period. To view all news for a particular agency, select the respective folder in the explorer tree; the full list will be loaded into Cinegy Newswire Browser.
|The breaking news is highlighted in bold in the news list.
Selected Category View
The selected category view provides access to the list of news, its content, and attached media materials.
The Cinegy Newswire Browser interface in the selected category view mode consists of the following panels:
News list panel – contains the list of all news elements for the selected date, month, or agency;
News body details – displays the text of the news element;
Assets panel – displays the linked media materials;
Breaking news list – this drop-down list displays the flash news.
To view only the list of news without their details, press the "Hide details" button on the menu bar of the Newswire Browser window. The news body details and assets panels will be hidden. To bring back the detailed view, press the "Show details" button.
News Body Details
The given panel contains information about the source, category, and time of the relevant news element, as well as its heading and text. The related agency copyright information can be viewed here as well. Hyperlinks present in the text are highlighted and clickable.
Sending Media to Job Drop Target
The media materials included into the news elements are listed on the assets panel. The availability of the assets panel depends on the provider. Usually, video files are supplied from providers under a special subscription, like the Associated Press Television News and Reuters. In this case, the Newswires Service monitors the share where the special .xml files are stored and where the path to video files is described. When the link to the file in Desktop is found, it is possible to import the file.
The media material can be sent to a job drop target by choosing the corresponding context menu command and defining the desired job drop target in the "Send to job drop folder…" dialog that appears:
Select the required job drop target from the list and press the "Apply" button; in the "Create a Job" dialog that appears define the required parameters.

This copies the file location to the clipboard.
