What is Live Center?

Live Center by Norkon is a live blogging platform designed to provide professional bloggers, journalists, news agencies, and various media outlets with the capability to deliver live streams of events to their audience while enjoying utmost versatility that other blogging platforms can’t provide.

Live Center gives users total control over their themes and designs, allowing them to create live blogs that have the same, consistent look and feel with their brand as well as the rest of their websites, apps, and portals. From blog posts to visuals to scorecards and more, users are in charge of how their live blogs look to their audience. This gives their blogs that distinctive look and edge which contributes greatly to their overall identity. Live Center comes with a rich set of capabilities including real-time live blogging, unlimited users, and a comprehensive overview dashboard.

Overview of Live Center Benefits

Total Implementation Control

Live Center gives you absolute control over your live feeds, their configurations, and implementation. Everything is supported, from simple and basic iframes to a tailored data feed that can be implemented in a native app or customized in an article. Such capability enables you to easily integrate your live coverages with your websites, as well as build a live feed that engages their readers exactly how they want – without the limitations that are imposed by other liveblogging platforms.

Customizable design

Majority of the Live Blogging solutions available today offer a very limited range of design options. But you need more than just being able to change fonts and background color. Live Center gives you a complete range when it comes to creative freedom, enabling you to match your live feed’s design with the customers overall brand and graphical profile.

Ability to create your own post types and interactions

Live blogging is not limited to mere text, pictures, and videos. You need more to fully engage your audience and keep them coming back for more. With Live Center, you can build your own post visuals and interactions based on your specifications and personal preferences. These include customized sport scoreboards, election vote counters, reader polls, breaking news highlights, and premium post behind a paywall.

Broad compatibility and extensibility

With Live Center’s Public or Publishing API, you can integrate your live blogging platform with your existing CMS, or create custom publishing widgets, to create a more seamless user experience. Journalists appreciate this functionality as this means that live blogs can more directly be managed from inside their ordinary writer environment.

From an end-users’ point of view, this means that live feeds can be accessible in new places and formats not previously possible such as in apps, newsletters, and carousels.

From a business point of view, this extensibility makes Live Center both future-proof by ensuring that changes in internal systems will not break the solution, and more easily commercialized if branded content, ads, or other revenue sources are included as a part of the live coverage.

What Problems Will Live Center Solve?

Challenges with mobile rendering – solved through the use of Live Center’s Extensions

One common challenge faced by customers is that features in traditional live blogging solutions are not developed to work well with mobile. One example is the sports scoreboard provided by ScribbleLive that communicates live updates from games.

The scoreboard is by default fully expanded to show a full-size team logo, team name, score, current period, audience, and players. When viewed on a desktop of a large tablet, the scoreboard works well because the available screen height allows all of this information to fit. But when viewed on a mobile, the default mode of having all content expanded means that most of the screen is filled, and users have to scroll past all of it to see any posts.

Live Center offers a brand new scoreboard Live Center’s Extensions that had three collapsible modes which default to a collapsed view. This provides a much better user experience by allowing readers to select if they want all the details, and more easily accessible to posts in the feed without having to scroll down further.

Lack of integration flexibility – Integration with customer’s CMS for more user-friendly workflow

Many older solutions do not allow easy creation of plugins and widgets to the CMS where live blogs are ultimately handled by customers. Live Center has a broad range of APIs that allows integration with customers’ CMS. One example is the Live Center widget for Infomaker’s Digital Writer CMS which allows customers to simply drag-and-drop a live feed that has been created in Live Center from a list, without the need to use any script or ID. Users simply search for a channel they want to include and drag it into the article.

Cluttered editor interface – Ability to customize editor features & tools

A common issue from customers is that the interface and editor in other liveblogging solutions are very cluttered with too many impressions and features. Every customer has a different need and uses different features, which often means that many of the buttons, fields, and tools in an editor are rarely or never used. The effect traditionally brings too much complexity to the interface.

Live Center allows customers to hide features from the interface that are not widely used, providing a simplified layout and with reduced impressions. Examples of these can be extensions that are not needed, features such as comments, and formatting and media options. Live Center works with their customers to understand what features they need, and the rest is hidden from their editor to make the solution more streamlined. If they decide to add them, Live Center can easily unhide them again.

Additionally, Live Center has a simple editor interface with two main columns, one for the Editor with text formatting and tools, and one for the preview and feed of published posts. This layout results in much less scrolling on a tablet or mobile devices.
