Croatian Nova TV chooses Mosart for news
on May 25, 2011

Croatian commercial channel Nova TV, owned by Central European Media Enterprises (CME), has chosen Mosart Medialab's newscast automation system. Installed at the channel's Zagreb studio and in use for all Nova TV's news coverage including the flagship central evening news, the Mosart system went live with Nova TV in April.

Nova TV's Mosart Newscast installation supersedes the network's previous traditional approach to newscasts, with multiple operators working with the gallery. Using Mosart, the station combines high levels of automation and reduced staffing for much of the output with flexible hands-on operation during the flagship news program.

"We researched and tried all the available studio automation software systems on the market, and the Mosart system was the clear winner," said Srecko Husnjak, technical director for Nova TV. "The system offers enormous flexibility in operation so we can go from a minimal staffing level to fully staffed unscheduled operation as and when we need to."

Launched in 2000, Nova TV was Croatia's first commercial television network, and became part of the CME group in 2004. Nova TV is the first broadcaster in the European southeast region to install the Mosart newscast automation system.
