Morocco’s Atlantic FM Upgrades to NETIA’s Radio-Assist 8.2

CLARET, France — Dec. 3, 2014 — NETIA today announced that Moroccan radio group Atlantic FM, part of the Eco-Medias Group, has upgraded to version 8.2 of NETIA’s Radio-Assist(TM) digital audio software suite. Bringing Atlantic FM to the forefront of audio technology, the installation provides the foundation for a complete shift to digital broadcasting while enabling operators to take advantage of the familiar functionality and interfaces they know from the initial Radio-Assist system deployed in 2006.

“Radio-Assist offers an extensive range of features critical to the operation of a modern broadcast station,” said Rachid Mounaouar, technical director at Atlantic FM. “Given this robust functionality and the familiarity of our operators with the NETIA software, the upgrade to version 8.2 was an easy and logical decision. Also, as we move forward with our migration to digital operations, the NETIA software will support a fluid transition.”

Founded in 2006, Atlantic FM today is the Moroccan economic news leader. To keep its number-one position, the radio station needs a robust and reliable system such as NETIA’s radio automation solution. The software is a complete solution that covers the entire distribution channel from ingest to distribution, and Atlantic FM relies on the software in areas including news, commercials, and music scheduling.

The new Radio-Assist 8.2 installation at Atlantic FM’s Casablanca facilities comprises more than 32 workstations for editing, planning, and recording. Operators use NETIA’s broadcast module for production and distribution. New features introduced in Radio-Assist 8.2 include cloud-based management, giving users the ability to access the system database from any network-connected workstation.

“The new installation at Atlantic FM demonstrates not only the continued strength of our Radio-Assist software suite in the MEA area, but also the value that broadcasters see in the significantly extended feature set of version 8.2,” Jean-Michel Bombois, operations project manager at NETIA. “Ever since the original Radio-Assist in 2006, we have worked closely with Atlantic FM to support its evolution — particularly its transition to digital — and its leadership as a foremost news source in Morocco.”

All India Radio Takes New NETIA Radio-Assist Software Live at New Delhi Headquarters and 48 Stations Across India

CLARET, France — Nov. 18, 2014 — NETIA today announced that All India Radio (AIR), the national radio broadcaster of India and a division of Prasar Bharati group, has taken its new Radio-Assist(TM) digital audio software suite live on more than 1,300 workstations to support its national broadcast facility and 48 local stations. Through this installation, coordinated by Delhi-based systems integrator Progressive Infotech, NETIA software has effectively been deployed in every major city across India, enabling AIR to tailor and deliver informative, educational, and entertaining programming to listeners throughout the country.

“The work performed by Progressive Infotech and NETIA ensured that the Radio-Assist deployment met the demanding requirements of geographically distributed operations, as well as the challenges of providing content that engages AIR listeners across a large and diverse audience,” said Gulshan Kharbanda, chief technology officer at Progressive Infotech. “We believe this project represented a significant improvement in AIR’s production and broadcast capabilities, and we are confident that they can build on these capabilities to enrich the on-air product for their many listeners.”

AIR, the sister service to national television broadcaster Doordarshan, is one of the world’s largest radio networks with respect to the number of broadcast languages it offers and the socio-economic and cultural diversity of its audience. The broadcaster’s home service comprises 277 stations located across the country, reaching nearly 92 percent of the country’s area and 99 percent of the total population. At AIR headquarters in New Delhi, the NETIA Radio-Assist deployment streamlines the broadcaster production and customization of services to address the language and culture of each listening area.

Radio-Assist covers each part of the production and broadcast workflow, allowing users across AIR stations to record, edit, or prepare a playlist. In addition to browse and publishing tools for full multimedia functionality, the software features tools for acquisition, archiving, audio editing, commercial and music production, newsroom systems, scheduling, broadcasting, and administration. Thanks to its Unicode compatibility, the NETIA software makes it easier for AIR to broadcast its programming in over 20 different languages and numerous dialects.

NETIA worked closely with Progressive Infotech throughout the project, providing training and support, as well as on-the-ground assistance at critical sites in Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata.

“The size of this Radio-Assist implementation is truly remarkable, and it demonstrates the extent to which NETIA software can scale in supporting highly efficient radio production and broadcasting, despite the challenges of multilingual broadcasting across a massive geographic area,” said Benjamin Schvent, head of Asia-Pacific operations at NETIA. “The system running live now at AIR is an excellent model of the modern large-scale radio broadcasting operation.”

Media Group International Installs VidiGo’s Visual Radio Solution at Clouds FM

Leading Media Systems Integrator Media Group International has assisted Tanzania’s Clouds FM radio station to give its audience a totally new, interactive experience by installing VidiGo Visual Radio software. The new software will go live on air at Clouds FM within the next few weeks.

The Clouds FM project is the first major radio installation MGI and VidiGo have completed in Africa since meeting at CABSAT 2012 and subsequently forging a partnership. The two companies are now working together to give MGI’s television and radio customers much greater access to VidiGo’s revolutionary range of broadcast software products.
VidiGo Visual Radio was the ideal solution for Clouds FM, one of four stations operated by Tanzania’s Clouds Media Group. Affectionately referred to as The People’s Station, Clouds FM is annually rated the number one station in Tanzania for the youth segment.

MGI’s Sales Director Paul Wallis, who brokered the Clouds FM deal in conjunction with Sales Assistant Diana Velikova, says: “Thanks to its strong reputation for delivering trendsetting programming, dynamic presenters and innovative promotions, Clouds FM is widely regarded as the ‘coolest’ radio station in Tanzania by the country’s 18 to 35 year olds. Given this demographic, the station wanted to incorporate interactive graphics that could be overlaid onto the video feed of its radio broadcasts and used to enhance its internet presence and Twitter, RSS and social media feeds. Diana and I felt that VidiGo Visual Radio was ideal for Clouds FM because it will be able to deliver all the elements station staff need in a very simple to use and intuitive package.”

VidiGo Virtual Radio combines the strength of VidiGo Live and VidiGo Audio Director. VidiGo Live is a full blown software solution for multi-camera TV production. The VidiGo Audio Director is an intelligent extension to VidiGo Live that makes automatic decisions by analyzing audio signals with its advanced algorithms, allowing it to make decisions like a real television director. Finally, the graphics and text overlays are automatically inserted within VidiGo Live, which makes it possible to superimpose content in a live situation using a station’s own designed Flash application.

Joseph Cusago, Managing Director, Clouds Media Group, says: “We are really thrilled with the workflow VidiGo Virtual Radio has provided and our audiences will love the fact that we will soon offer an interactive visual radio experience via the internet and social media feeds. The system is incredibly easy to operate and, because the cameras are switched automatically on the basis of which microphone input is being used, there is very little for our presenters to do. This means they can concentrate on the job of presenting, leaving VidiGo’s clever software to take care of everything else.”

VidiGo CCO Reinout Lempers adds: “With VidiGo’s background in radio, we understand the culture and needs of a radio station. We knew from the start that we shouldn’t bother radio presenters with creating video. That’s why we developed an automated software workflow that is fully compatible with existing radio workflows. With our solution presenters to do what they are good at, which is making radio, while VidiGo’s automated workflow creates an entire TV show, just like a real director would.”
