Protecmedia brings the revolutionary progression to digital publishing in Southeast Asia
Legacy Media, a new digital media publisher in Brunei, has chosen to begin their digital newspaper operations and associated digital publications to an integrated newsroom operation based on Protecmedia’s technology.

In close collaboration with Richmatt Graphics, Protecmedia‘s leading solution partner in Asia, Legacy Media will utilise the latest version of Protecmedia’s multi-channel publishing platform MILENIUM and the company’s web CMS solution ITER WEB for their print and online edition.

“We have managed to achieve much progress in a very short amount of time. Within a number of weeks after striking the agreement with Protecmedia we have managed to establish the newsroom operations from scratch”

“It is somewhat of unchartered territory for us, but we are looking forward to utilising the software we will have at our disposal in delivering our content and news. Our readers will be able to access the content across a number of platforms, in the beginning through our website, and moving on to our digital paper and further publications thereafter,” said Abdul Qahar Ibnu, Executive Chairman at Legacy Media.

His sentiments were echoed by Hj Johari Achee, Executive Director at Legacy Media and the Editor-in-Chief at their publication the ‘New Brunei Daily’. “We are excited to begin the next phase of our operations, and we would not have been able to do so without the support of our partners, Richmatt Graphics and Protecmedia,” he said.

Leveraging the integration of both systems, the publisher will streamline its editorial and production processes and will achieve a new level of efficiency and security. The multimedia archive solution QUAY will be also integrated with the newsroom system allowing automatic pre-cataloguing of content and subsequent retrieval.

“We have managed to achieve much progress in a very short amount of time. Within a number of weeks after striking the agreement with Protecmedia we have managed to establish the newsroom operations from scratch and look forward to having the fully integrated systems at our disposal,” said Abdul Qahar.

“For us at Legacy Media and the ‘New Brunei Daily’, having such flexibility thanks to the powerful software developed by Protecmedia, it gives more choice for our readers and for our journalists to provide a variety of content through one system,” said Achee.

The implementation, which is being carried out in record time, will be based on the idea of providing journalists a flexible workspace to plan and coordinate news coverage in multichannel newsrooms.
