APís ENPS is the global choice in J-school broadcast newsrooms
Offering journalism students an expanded broadcast news curriculum, nine more colleges and universities signed agreements to install ENPS, the news production software system developed by the Associated Press. Four domestic and five international educators will have the power to train students with real world applications of ENPS, providing them with the tools they need to thrive in the increasingly competitive field of broadcast media.
"Designed by and for broadcasters, ENPS is the most comprehensive production tool for leading-edge newsrooms," said Lee Perryman, Deputy Director of AP's Broadcast division and Director of Broadcast Technology. “We're proud to be able to provide the same powerful system to students and faculty of colleges and universities worldwide.”
The latest colleges and universities to receive ENPS are:
Florida State University
Highbury College (United Kingdom)
New York University
Nottingham Trent University (United Kingdom)
Orange TV - Syracuse University
Penn State University
Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (Australia)
University of Central Lancashire (United Kingdom)
University of Sheffield (United Kingdom)
AP’s news production systems are the most widely installed in the United States and help coordinate broadcast production in almost 600 television, radio, and network newsrooms in 51 countries. Over the past eight years, AP's ENPS has accounted for seven of every 10 news production system installations or upgrades worldwide. Powerful, easy-to-use features include scripting, program rundowns, planning, contacts, messaging, news wire management, production device control, an integrated search engine, and off-line and remote access capabilities for field staff.
