Sudan Radio Upgrades to NETIA’s Radio-Assist(TM) 8.1 Audio Automation Software

CLARET, France — July 30, 2013 — NETIA today announced that Sudan Radio has upgraded its operations to the Radio-Assist(TM) 8.1 range of digital audio automation software. Sudan Radio first launched Radio-Assist in 2005, after working closely with NETIA to migrate its tape-based archives to digital. With this upgrade to version 8.1, the North African broadcaster will take advantage of the NETIA solution’s newly enhanced tools for broadcasting, editing, and music scheduling.

“We chose to upgrade our current NETIA installation not only because we wish to remain at the forefront of new broadcast technology, but also because we have found the company’s Radio-Assist software to be a reliable and efficient system,” said Hassan Mostafa, IT and digital archive manager at Sudan Radio. “Staff members across Sudan Radio are already familiar with this NETIA solution, so it will take them very little time to get a grip on the new functionalities offered by the latest software release.”

NETIA’s Radio-Assist family of digital audio software programs covers each part of the production and broadcast workflow, allowing users to record, edit, or prepare a playlist. In addition to new browse and publishing tools for full multimedia functionality, the software features tools for acquisition, sound-file editing, commercial and music production, newsroom systems, scheduling, multicasting, and administration.

With the upgrade to Radio-Assist 8.1, Sudan Radio will enjoy the benefit of built-in music scheduling functionality. With music management tools integrated into the software’s Feder-All playlist preparation module, users will be able to automate playlist generation according to preset criteria, business policies, and a wide range of intelligent options for sequencing music.

To ensure a smooth transition to the new software release, NETIA has trained Sudan Radio’s 40 Radio-Assist users on the solution’s enhanced AIR DDO broadcasting module.

“Sudan Radio is a longstanding NETIA client, and we share a history of collaboration in establishing highly efficient radio broadcast workflows,” said Marc Bawol, MEA sales manager at NETIA. “We’re pleased that through this relationship, we have been able to introduce further efficiencies in bringing Sudan Radio programming to air.”

Focusrite RedNet System Simplifies Connectivity for Southwestern College’s Center for Recording Arts & Technology

Immersive audio arts program adds two RedNet 5 HD interfaces for Pro Tools® and three RedNet 2 16-channel analog interfaces

Los Angeles, CA, July 30, 2013 – The Recording Arts & Technology program at Southwestern College in the San Diego California suburb of Chula Vista is one of the nation’s top audio programs. Begun in May 2008, under the direction of Professor Jay Henry, a two-time Grammy® award nominee for his engineering and production skills, the Recording Arts & Technology program prepares students for careers in the entertainment industries of music, television and film, utilizing state-of-the-art music studios and labs for a hands-on learning experience that emphasizes fundamental recording technique and knowledge. Henry entered the music industry decades ago, and has experienced the huge changes in the music recording industry; he has kept his educational program flexible to adapt to the changes yet to come. That’s why he was excited to discover Focusrite’s RedNet networked audio I/O technology. In recent weeks, Prof. Henry directed the purchase of two RedNet 5 HD interfaces for his Pro Tools|HD systems coupled with three RedNet 2 16-channel analog I/O interfaces for his main recording and satellite mixing rooms. Once these units are installed, the two studios at the core of the Recording Arts and Technology program will be able to be completely networked, allowing seamless access of audio between rooms and giving students and faculty a high degree of flexibility in how those facilities are used.

“We’ve kept this program at the cutting edge since it began, and we’ve been waiting for a networked solution like RedNet to come along for a while,” explains Henry, whose professional and personal affinity for Focusrite products goes way back through his relationship with long-time colleague and current Focusrite Novation Inc. President Phil Wagner. “Phil and I go way back, and we understand how you need to both address the cutting edge of technology and also make sure that the sound is always the first consideration. I get that with the Focusrite RedNet system – we get seamless connectivity and the built-in Dante networking, and of course great sound at the same time. Focusrite has never let me down, and it’s going to be a great benefit for our students and teachers here too, as RedNet represents the future for recording and interconnectivity.”

Henry added, “The best thing sonically about RedNet is the detail and width of the stereo image, which is a direct result of RedNet’s next generation A/D – D/A design and analog circuitry. RedNet sounds more open; it’s like taking the roof off your mix.“

RedNet is Focusrite’s flagship range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinate’s tried and tested Dante digital audio networking system to bring studio quality sound to any modern audio application.

RedNet 5 connects your RedNet system to Pro Tools|HD via a standard DigiLink or Mini DigiLink cable. Up to six units can be connected to one Pro Tools HDX system, supporting up to 192 channels at 96 kHz or 96 channels at 192 kHz. Pro Tools|HD Native and Pro Tools|HD are also supported. RedNet 5 is interoperable with other Pro Tools® interfaces and features extremely low latency.

RedNet 2 adds 16 analog channels in and out to your RedNet network and can be located anywhere you can run an Ethernet cable. Featuring Focusrite’s precision 24-bit A-D and D-A conversion for superb audio performance, it delivers 119 dB dynamic range at sample rates up to 192 kHz. The rear panel includes standard DB25 connectors for analogue patchbay or breakout cable interfacing.
