NETIA at BES India 2011
NETIA will showcase its Radio-Assist™ 8 range of digital audio automation software at BES EXPO 2011. Equipped with a broad range of tools for end-to-end multimedia workflows, the newest version of NETIA's acclaimed software suite now extends beyond traditional broadcasting, allowing users to prepare publication at an early stage in the workflow. Publication is prepared at the same level as the on-air thanks to new planning tools.
NETIA's Radio-Assist family of digital audio software programs covers each part of the production and broadcast workflow, allowing users to record, edit, or prepare a playlist. In addition to new browse and publishing tools for full multimedia functionality, the software features tools for acquisition, sound-file editing, commercial and music production, newsroom systems, scheduling, multicasting, administration, and more.
Radio–Assist is now also integrated with NETIA's Content Management System (CMS), offering an automatic publishing engine for all media as well as managing associated metadata and linked media. By interfacing with NETIA's Media Asset Management system, Radio-Assist 8 responds efficiently to the needs of media groups having to manage and share video, audio, images, and text throughout their entities.
Radio-Assist 8 provides instant access to all types of media, archived or online. Regardless of the storage medium, items can be previewed and restored for repurposing and distribution, both for broadcasting and for multiplatform distribution.
Radio-Assist 8 makes three different types of publishing available to users. With the software's new "Publication" tab, journalists can publish audio-only content and its metadata; publish audio and associated media, such as video, text, or images; or prepare a group of items for automatic conversion and publishing to an array of destinations, such as a podcast, posting on the Internet, or delivery to mobile devices.
Content Management System (CMS)
At BES EXPO 2011, NETIA will also highlight its new Content Management System (CMS) that was first introduced at IBC2010. CMS allows NETIA customers to globally streamline all of their production processes thanks to simple, easy-to-manage workflows and task automation. The new software suite also allows users to connect all of their partners and vendors within a single production ecosystem, simplifying the sharing and managing of media assets.
Users can now manage all of the processes within the production environment — from editing through post and distribution — through one unique and easy-to-use interface. The new Web-based interface, built on Microsoft® Silverlight® technology, allows for more performance and greater security.
CMS provides for ingest and quality control; metadata extraction and tagging; search, browse, and low-res proxy generation; integration with key third-party systems including QA, tape/disk-based archive, non-linear editing, playout, and traffic automation; and multiplatform delivery to mobile TV, VOD/catch-up TV, IPTV, Web streaming, and HD and SD distribution platforms.
