Worldnow’s offerings include features such as a CMS that easily integrates into critical broadcast systems, rule-based automation, responsive design for mobile and a single unified workflow across the Web, mobile and video.

Max Media will be using Worldnow’s full platform services including Web content management, video, mobile and sales consulting support.

FederalGuy: So what? Most trades run a lot of material in this form…TVNewsCheck actually does far more reporting & opinion than most trades, but sometimes it’s o.k. to run a press release if it’s just announcing something. Are you questioning whether these stations actually signed up? The other key with press releases is what quotes clients are willing to put their names to (because no vendor I know of would run a quote without permission from the client). If the quotes go beyond the boilerplate “we’re happy to partner” and actually say something, it means something. Not to say you don’t have to be a discerning reader of course. You seem to have some kind of axe to grind with TVNewsCheck.
