1.) Welcome to COMPOSE

COMPOSE™ lets you organize your show, write your scripts,, create your graphics and automate your show production. Centralize your workflow and save yourself time and money.

2.) BUILD Your Show

COMPOSE™ is able to handle any number of different media assets, and with the NewsCaster Server all of the pieces of your show are at your fingertips. Add them to your show with a simple drag-and-drop. It’s never been easier.

3.) Broadcast TIMING SYSTEM

COMPOSE is rooted in over 30 years of professional broadcast experience. Our dynamic timing lets you calculate your hittime, backtime, and plan for live segments automatically – even while you’re live. Feel the power of a professional broadcast workflow.

4.) WRITE your script

COMPOSE™ features a built-in text editor to create your scripts. Spell Check your text in any of nine included languages. Output your script to paper or to a teleprompter and you're ready to go.

5.) ADD your graphics

COMPOSE™ can load graphics templates, allowing you to select what the output will look like. You can then enter text and/or select a picture to customize the graphic. During show production these templates can be automatically loaded or put on-air by pressing a single button.


COMPOSE™ features a built-in button panel window that gives you full control of your show – take it to air whenever you want with just a few clicks. What used to take hours now takes seconds, saving you time and money.

7.) PRODUCE like the pros

COMPOSE™ dynamically times your show and provides backtime & over/under production times. This lets your Producer make rundown adjustments as needed.
