KNR keeps on collaborating with nxtedition

Pioneers in microservices-based production environments, nxtedition continues to garner recognition for its news and live platform, securing ongoing support from Kalaallit Nunaata Radioa (KNR), the state-owned national broadcaster in Greenland. Under a newly forged strategic agreement, nxtedition and KNR are set to sustain their collaboration for the next half-decade.

Despite catering to a modest audience of just over 56,000, KNR churns out 800 hours of television and 6,000 hours of radio content annually. Faced with the challenge of delivering a plethora of high-quality content within constraints of budget and staffing, the broadcaster sought out a robust, professional, adaptable, and user-friendly workflow solution.

The approach offered by nxtedition comprehensively addressed these needs. Integrating pre-production, ingest, media management, scriptwriting and editing, graphics, prompting, and live studio automation, the platform seamlessly delivers finalized content for broadcast across radio, online, and social media platforms.

Annga Lynge, CEO of KNR, remarked, “Prior to transitioning to nxtedition, KNR grappled with outdated technical infrastructure that restricted our capabilities. nxtedition revolutionized our operations, empowering the team to concentrate on content creation and efficiency. It fostered collaboration across our organization and platforms. We are eager to sustain this momentum, and we are delighted to confirm nxtedition’s support until at least 2029.”

Highlighting their distinctive approach, Roger Persson, Sales & Marketing Director at nxtedition, stressed, “Our strategy has been unique from the outset. We engaged with seasoned broadcasters and forward-thinking experts in software and IT to develop a platform tailored to the specific needs of content producers operating under demanding schedules, achieving more with less. The objective is to seamlessly integrate technology, allowing storytelling to command the spotlight. It is gratifying to witness KNR, the world’s sole Kalaallisut broadcaster, reaping the benefits of this approach, enhancing creativity and efficiency.”
