With the shift towards 24:7 multimedia publishing, editorial teams are being unified, work places are being rationalised and editorial needs have changed. But is technology keeping up? How are the latest tools helping to streamline processes and speed up workflow and where are they falling down?

This forum brought together editorial experts to examine the latest issues surrounding true multimedia story production and to look at what new solutions are being sought.
