NewsBud is a desktop newsroom solution for small/medium stations who wish to create, edit and broadcast news bulletins/scripts.  With NewsBud, you can view a series of RSS news-feeds, copy+paste the text into a new story and compile it into a full bulletin along with audio clips for playout using the "Studio Panel".  This is a simple-to-use playback and reader screen offering easy text-scrolling and audio playout.

NewsBud Pro is coming...
An updated version of the original NewsBud application sees a database-driven Bulletin/Story system with more features, an improved studio playout interface and more...  Expected cost will be around 100 (per station/site) - Further details to follow in due-course...
