On-Hertz Unleashes Nubo, a Cloud-Based Radio Production Studio
Suitable for both large and small organizations, Nubo is easily scalable thanks to its Docker-based architecture. The system offers reliable and secure connections and frees operators from unsecured, hard-to-expand remote desktop connections.
Through an innovative approach, Nubo integrates effortlessly with existing workflows and is compatible with most automation software on the market. The unique solution packages all aspects of a radio studio — not only contribution — into an easily accessible service available via subscription. What’s more, thanks to its on-board AoIP capabilities and the fact that it’s already interconnected with systems like Dalet and Netia, users can quickly and effortlessly import playlists directly into Nubo.
With advanced features such as low latency contribution and monitoring, playout, mixing — including automixing, N-Minus, talkback —, and full-blown processing like parametric EQs and dynamics, the easy-to-use SaaS suite offers unprecedented flexibility and quality. Nubo manages up to six WebRTC contributors accessible from uniquely generated URL links, one VoIP Phone (SIP), one AoIP transmission codec (SIP/Opus) and up to 10 separate WebRTC monitoring/talkback feeds (for technicians and producers, etc.). In addition, all web contribution channels benefit from the same top-notch processing as well as a dedicated N-1 bus, even for contributions from smartphones or tablets.
The system brings added value to any production facility. Advantages, which include resource sharing and centralized IT, without the hassle of setup or traditional administration, mean broadcasters can not only create compelling programs but are able to do so efficiently.
Moreover, thanks to Nubo’s comprehensive yet intuitive interface, any staffer — from a presenter to a technician or from a producer to a contributor — can easily operate the studio according to their requirements. This, combined with the fact that users can take control simultaneously from anywhere on the planet, guarantees stations never miss a beat in providing their audiences with the most enticing and up-to-the minute content.
On-Hertz Co-Founder and CEO Benjamin Lardinoit describes Nubo as an all-in-one ubiquitous service. “It’s a complete virtual studio in the cloud not only from the perspective of contribution but all around,” he said. “It responds perfectly to our current scenario and the need to work remotely from home, not only for presenters and journalists but also for technical teams. It provides a future-proof solution as the broadcasting industry continues to migrate toward decentralized operations, while maintaining quality.”
nnovation is definitely a key word at On-Hertz and the company will also shortly release the On-Hertz Hub. The Hub, which works in association with Nubo, and other On-Hertz products, is designed to check user credentials, provision resources, manage any required admin or planning tasks, as well as ensure that all Nubo is always on par with the rest of their organization.
On-Hertz delivers solutions for the broadcast industry that are designed to augment any workflow involving sound, improving media operations and interoperability.
