Bel-RTL

Bel RTL, a Belgian radio of the RTL group, has several sites in Belgium: Brussels, Liege, Charleroi and Namur. Since 1998 RTL has progressively been digitizing these sites with NETIA's Radio AssistTM range of digital audio products. Bel RTL is a figurehead of technology particularly since evolving its system towards independent domains, namely Production, Playout, Archiving. Bel RTL is among those customers who have progressively become some of NETIA's privileged par tners. The work of listening and reflection by the teams of Bel RTL and NETIA has materialized with the evolution of the Radio AssistTM range: Air-DDO , the broadcasting software, is one of the best broadcasting interfaces of the market. The high-performance archiving and securing solutions of Radio AssistTM respond to the evolution of some important systems.

  • Manual restoration: when a user desires the restoration of a sound, it suffices to double-click on the database of archived sounds. The reverse process takes place: DIVA makes the sound in question accessible, Media Management transfers it to the appropriate server. Once the sound is available, all the system's stations are informed.
  • Automatic restoration: Radio Assist's FileWatch software ensures that all sounds needed for a broadcast are available. It regularly scans programming schedules and automatically sends a restoration order for any sound that is not on the server.

 

The Concept of Maximum Security

Bel RTL is composed of NETIA Media Management software, implanted at the level of the servers. Media Management is responsible for the permanent availability of conscripted files and brings a maximum security solution with the appearance of autonomous and individually secured subsystems (or domains). For Bel RTL, the placement of this very open structure also represents a step towards the future.

 

Media Management

NETIA Media Management software Automaton handles the entire flow of data (metadata and sound data) within a digital audio or video system. It is designed to monitor and transfer data automatically from one domain to another and to ensure that the domains remain fully independent. For instance, when an item is mar ked as RTA (Ready-To-Archive), it is automatically copied on the archive ser ver. Media Management operation is fully transparent and ensures the user has access to the requisite file wherever it is located on the system. The automatic Media Management device makes it easier to create specific domains for each activity (Production, Broadcast, Archiving, etc.). Each domain has its own structure: servers, database, etc. This separation of activities generates independent subsystems and guarantees greater security.
