rScript is the fastest most reliable way to get REAL-TIME SYNCHRONIZED scripts from your news-room's iNEWS system onto any Android device. Because rScript maintains a complete copy of your show locally on your hand-held device, it allows you to step from page to page at lightning speed. No waiting for slow connections, and more importantly, there is no chance for you to get burned on-air due to your network connection dropping out. Once the initial copy of your show is downloaded, a background process begins that keeps all scripts updated in real-time. Need fast access to a particular page? You can jump right to a story from a rundown (queue) view. Need to cache multiple shows for quick back-to-back switching? rScript has you covered.
rScript does not use or require MOS Gateway or iNEWS Web Access. This means your news-room's iNEWS server is compatible now and that no new licenses or configurations changes are necessary.
rScript is used by multiple stations daily (including a top-10 market network affiliate) so you can rest assured that rScript is ready for YOUR station. Be sure to thoroughly test rScript in demo (non-paid) mode with your particular iNEWS system before purchasing a license key for unrestricted use. Although license keys can not be refunded, you can use the demo as long as you want so give rScript a good workout before buying.
If you experience a problem, please email us at [email protected]
and we will attempt to address issues as quickly as possible. Please tell us which version of iNEWS your station is using and which version of Android you are running. Please do not use the Market's comments section to report problems since we may not see them.
