With the emergence of new distribution platforms, radio broadcasters are facing new challenges. Inventing new production and broadcast streams is proving essential in order to offer constantly renewed content on increasing numbers of distribution channels.
Radio-AssistTM covers the entire digital audio workflow of your radio station whatever its type: News, Commercial, Music, Sports etc; whatever its size, as inherent to Radio-Assist's design is scalability; whatever the asset, audio, text or video. The modular structure of the Radio-AssistTM range means it is easily assimilated into existing systems and allows ingest, editing, scheduling, broadcast, multicast, archiving, data security and administration via a single user interface.
A single Radio-AssistTM GUI provides simultaneous access to several production modules. From within a single interface, the user can record and edit, even while still recording, manage assets with numerous associated metadata, or prepare a playlist using voice-tracking. Whether networked or standalone, all Radio-AssistTM users have fast access and sharing of content thanks to a powerful semantic search engine and content enrichment system. Broadcast can be automated or live-assist for both traditional On-Air, or multi-platform distribution.
Radio-AssistTM allows production streams for conventional stations to be run in parallel with those for new distribution channels such as the Internet and Mobile broadcast services. Synchronisation and automation of these processes enable users to free themselves from technical tasks and concentrate more fully on creating content and added value. Radio-AssistTM interfaces with a Media Asset Management system providing a comprehensive content management process of audio, video, text, images.
The Radio-AssistTM 8 range is designed for a specific need and has a wide range of functions. With its modular structure, it can adapt to different requirements of radios and rapidly integrate into an existing environment.
