NTU rolling out 'newsroom of the future' with Newsplex Asia


Nanyang Technological University's Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information is rolling out a centre dedicated to creating the "newsroom of the future".

The $500,000 facility, called Newsplex Asia, is a joint effort with the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (Wan-Ifra).

The centre brings various media platforms together, such as a studio for digital audio and video broadcasts, and computer workstations for print, online, radio and television production.

This concept allows students to gain access to facilities producing different news products such as magazines, newspapers and radio broadcasts, all in one place.
