Business Wire conceived of NX with the goal of building an improved news delivery system for media organizations using the speed and reliability of the public Internet. The ratification of the NewsML standard by the IPTC in 2001 helped provide the capability of transmitting news in advanced document formats. These two standards - the Internet and NewsML - form the functional basis of NX.
BW NX has been in use by the media since September 2003. In October 2006 we added XHTML data to our NewsML and removed ANPA/TEXT data from our NewsML in November 2008.
NX, a Business Wire hardware and software system patented in the U.S. and Canada, is designed to use the internet as a communications medium to deliver Business Wire news in a simultaneous broadcast to its media customers. NewsML with XHTML mark-up is the primary data transmission format that contains the news as well as metadata items. HTML pre-formatted files are also available.
