RTM IPOH station upgrades to NETIA Radio-Assist 8.1 for even greater workflow efficiency

New Features in Radio-Assist 8.1 Simplify and Streamline Operations at Regional Station RTM located in IPOH (Malaysia)

rtmMontpellier, France - Dec. 12, 2012 - NETIA, a leading software manufacturer of media asset management and radio automation solutions, today announced that Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) has upgraded regional RTM station in IPOH to Radio-Assist 8.1. NETIA's Radio-AssistTM family of digital audio software programs has been in use at RTM for more than a decade, and the Ipoh-based station worked with Broadcast Communications International (BCI) to transition to the latest software release and begin working with new features including new Activity Watcher module.

"This upgrade to Radio-Assist 8.1 will introduce greater efficiency and productivity while requiring very little training," said Benjamin Schvent, NETIA's APAC Operations Manager. "Radio-Assist's ease of use and performance will support even the most complex operations and streamline RTM's workflow for multiplatform media delivery."

Based in Kuala Lumpur, RTM operates four television channels (TV1, TV2, IMRT, Muzik Aktif), six national radio stations, two international stations (Voice of Malaysia), and 16 regional stations. Today, 13 of those regional centers are digitized, thanks to complete installations of Radio-Assist software, which covers each part of the production and broadcast workflow.

With its Radio-AssistTM 8.1 upgrade, RTM in IPOH will gain a variety of added features. Radio-Assist 8.1's new audit module, also called Activity Watcher, enables administrators at RTM to trace and check all modifications made on the playlist and across the entire Radio Assist 8.1 system. With this tool, users can keep tabs on details such as the users who have connected and disconnected and what kind of items have been deleted.

"We enjoy a long and successful relationship with RTM , and we're pleased to see the broadcaster taking advantage of the new enhancements in Radio-Assist 8.1," said Colin TAN at BCI (Broadcast Communications International). "With more functionality than ever available from its familiar user interface, Radio-Assist 8.1 makes it easier for radio stations and groups to meet the demands of today's media consumers."
