If you are already set up as a "NEWS" user of the MCDS2 website to transmit files to 30R and the other NBC News locations, you may also use it to transmit finished video pieces for submission to msnbc.com.
Don't know what MCDS is? Or need help getting started with MCDS? Please seek help from NBC Field Ops IT staff.
Our MCDS destination site name is: MSNBCDOTCOM
When sending to the MSNBCDOTCOM destination we request that you also send to the 30Rock_News destination (it will only be a single upload on your end, but gets delivered to both locations!). See photo above for example.
Please make sure your submission meets our ready-to-publish basic requirements here. That page includes info and extended details on edit structure, chyron needs, audio needs, and accompanying still image requirement.
What to send?
- Your finished video file
- AND at least one representative still frame exported from your video (please don't do any size adjustments to the still... send us all the pixels you've got)
Upload's complete, now what?
Please e-mail your msnbc.com contact with:
- Forwarded copy(s) of the MCDS job completed mail(s)
- Suggested headline for the piece (subject + verb)
- Suggested caption for the piece (complete sentences)
- Any other relevant info
