Radio Algérienne Automates Music Broadcasting for JIL FM With Upgrade to NETIA Radio-Assist 8.1

CLARET, France — May 23, 2013 — NETIA today announced that Algeria’s JIL FM, a channel of national broadcaster Radio Algérienne, has upgraded to the Radio-Assist(TM) 8.1 digital audio software suite. JIL FM is using the company’s new music scheduling module to automate playout of a well-balanced blend of Algerian and international music. By migrating to Radio-Assist 8.1, JIL FM gains functionality that includes NETIA’s Activity Watcher, which simplifies tracking of changes made to playlists and the overall system.

“Radio Algérienne has worked with NETIA software for the past five years and has been very satisfied with Radio-Assist’s intuitive operation, efficiency, reliability, and rich functionality,” said Mourad Ouadahi, director at Radio Algérienne. “When version 8.1 presented a new music scheduling tool, we took the opportunity to upgrade the system at JIL FM and completely automate broadcasts while maintaining our strategic mix of popular domestic and international music.”

JIL FM (Generation FM) is Algeria’s first radio channel dedicated entirely to young listeners. The channel, launched at the beginning of 2012, is broadcasting its programs throughout the whole country in Arabic, Berber, and French. Its trendy format and entertaining programs have helped the channel to reach a larger audience every day. Like its parent broadcaster, Radio Algérienne, JIL FM has built its broadcast workflow on NETIA’s Radio-Assist software suite.

The NETIA support team worked with JIL FM to prepare the channel’s staff and audio database for the migration to version 8.1. With music management tools integrated into Radio-Assist 8.1′s FederAll playlist preparation module, users can now automate playlist generation according to preset criteria, business policies, and a wide range of intelligent options for sequencing music. At JIL FM, the software today enables balanced music scheduling that is consistent with the radio station’s strategy: 60 percent Algerian music and 40 percent international music, with a constant focus on new hits. Administrators at JIL FM also have begun using the Activity Watcher module to monitor all users and actions taken on the system.
