Netia Radio-Assist Enhances Efficiency and Collaborative Production Capabilities at Algerian Radio

CLARET, France — Sept. 1, 2010 — NETIA today announced that Algerian Radio (RA), Algeria’s public radio broadcaster, has expanded its Radio-Assist(TM) digital audio software installation to realize a highly automated end-to-end broadcast workflow incorporating media ingest, production, scheduling, playout, and archiving. By automating centralized media archiving for all five Algerian Radio national stations, facilitating the exchange of content among existing regional facilities already equipped with Radio-Assist, and streamlining acquisition of wires from various news sources, the Radio-Assist implementation enables more efficient creation and delivery of French- and Arabic-language news and other programming to more than 20 million listeners in Algeria.

“Timely news broadcasts are a very important part of the services that we offer to our listeners, and the further build out of our Radio-Assist software systems brings even greater efficiency to individual station operations, as well as improved collaborative capabilities among the different contributors to the news production workflow,” said Mr. HIDOUGUI Salah, director of technical services and equipment at Algerian Radio. “The highly automated workflow we now enjoy, as well as the benefits of a convenient centralized archive, give journalists the time and tools they need to deliver quality news quickly.” more
