Nomad Delivers Newsroom Integration for Graham


Graham Media Group (GMG) owns and operates six TV stations in the Midwest, South Texas, and Detroit areas. However, their stations have been operating independently and using different media management solutions. Many of them rely on Nexio for short-term storage, and all have some form of tape archives, but there was no standardized organization, making it difficult to find and retrieve previously aired news stories. GMG has taken on the challenge of improving the situation by standardizing the stations' operations, making content easily searchable and shareable across their stations, and reducing operational costs.
To achieve these goals, GMG transitioned to the Nomad Platform and AWS Cloud. The objective was to create a central archive of all news stories that all stations can access, with easy search and retrieval features, enabling better sharing of content across all stations. The move helped GMG reduce costs by redeucing on-premises hardware dependencies, long-term tape storage, and on-premises software management, while integrating with the current NRCS systems such as ENPS and INews, playout using GrassValley, and media management with EditShare. This integration did not sacrifice their current investments, and it also created new opportunities for monetizing content.

“Nomad shined early in the RFP process and never wavered. Their fresh approach to local TV newsroom workflow and vision for future capabilities stood out among the competition. The Nomad team pitched a clear vision… then delivered.” – Anthony Plosz, CTO, Graham Media Group
