RCS released version 3.0 of its RCSnews software, with updates it says were requested by news writers and directors in radio.
Users can create custom fields in the Story and Rundown libraries; drag and drop columns into new positions; ingest RSS and FTP feeds; and access embedded hyperlinks in wires of stories in an internal browser.
Features include a single-track audio editor; international language support, which enables reporters in reading wires and creating copy and media in any language; and enhanced spell check.
RCS also upgraded and released its Audio File Converter with the ability to write embedded tags for WMA files.
Additional highlights include Broadcast Wave Format support; improved schema for handling the embedded ID3 and cart chunk; support for more than eight groups so more folders can be handled during auto-processing; and Inno Setup, which the company says makes the install package more user-friendly.
