Frankly introduced its new Express Video workflow Tuesday, which will allow broadcasters to more efficiently publish live video to digital platforms.

With launch partner WICU, a Lilly Broadcasting station, Frankly is working to connect broadcast and digital platforms while keeping in place metadata used for targeting advertising and personalizing content. Lilly will be able to browse 72 hours of recorded station content in the cloud and edit clips for digital publication moments after they air on TV. The edited clips are automatically encoded in multiple bitrates for adaptive streaming to web, mobile and OTT devices.

"Leveraging Frankly Express Video, the WICU newsroom now has access to a solution that seamlessly captures video airing on broadcast television, and clips and publishes that same HD video to social and digital in near real time," said John Christianson, executive vice president at Lilly Broadcasting, in a statement.
