Tieline Forms Strategic Partnership with Netia
Codec company Tieline has formed a strategic partnership with content management system developer Netia, which includes the integration of the Report-IT Enterprise soft codec into Netia’s software solutions for managing and broadcasting radio content.
Both collaborated with mutual customer ABC Australia to integrate ingest of recorded Report-IT audio files into Netia’s Radio-Assist radiocentric content management system using FTP sharing. Tieline also integrated iSnippet, Netia’s Radio-Assist editing tool, into Report-IT Enterprise for iPhone/iPad.
“Tieline’s partnership with Netia opens up an entirely new world of opportunities for mobile journalism by making it easier and faster for journalists to get their stories to air via Netia Radio-Assist systems. Journalists now also have access to improved and streamlined report editing capabilities with the integration of Netia’s iSnippet editing application into Report-IT Enterprise for iPhone and iPad,” said Tieline Vice President of Sales, APAC/EMEA, Charlie Gawley. “For engineers and all radio news stakeholders, this will deliver improved workflows, which reduce time, effort and costs.”
Editing tools available within Radio-Assist automation products are available for iOS devices. The iPhone- and iPad-compatible iSnippet tool enables users to utilize the Radio-Assist audio editing capabilities familiar from the desktop on portable devices.
The Report-IT Enterprise mobile device application allows reporters and announcers to remotely send live broadcast-quality IP audio wirelessly to a Tieline IP codec in the studio. Report-IT can also broadcast live and record at the same time, so audio can be sent in real-time to a Tieline codec in the studio or uploaded via FTP sharing to a news server with no codec required.
