Software modules
Netia Digital Audio
IP Recorder and IP Player: These two software modules allow Open NET users to simplify the acquisition and distribution of IP-based content. The IP Recorder and IP Player modules reduce the complexity of taking SDI video from the camera to editing by eliminating the need for a video server. A simple file server and a facility’s existing architecture can instead be leveraged for acquisition and delivery of digital video. The IP Recorder streamlines acquisition of SDI content, accepting the encoded IP stream and delivering media to the file server, where it is available for editing, archiving and autoindexation. The elimination of the video recorder, video grid, and video encoder reduces overall costs and supports a fast, completely digital workflow with more timely delivery of rushes and replays of live content with delay. A simple computer system can be used for review and quality control.

Messaging technology
Voice-to-content messaging: Voice-to-text technology allows listeners to contribute to a radio show’s dialog by speaking messages that are then converted into text and either read on air by the hosts and/or posted to the show’s website. Listeners can leave short and concise messages without being put on hold or talking to a call screener first. While similar radio call-in shows invite listener participation, the opinions that make it to air are selected to keep the conversation moving forward. With the Spinvox technology, radio hosts are able to sort through these messages quickly and deliver more of the most salient thoughts on the air.
