Jordan’s state radio broadcaster, JRTV Corp. is upgrading its existing radio automation and broadcast systems with Netia Radio Assist 8 radio automation and playout solutions.
As part of the project, Netia is providing the broadcaster with production, scheduling, workflow management and archiving software, in addition to media logging and monitoring solutions.
Netia says its radio automation and playout systems will be deployed throughout JRTV’s national channels and regional stations, with up to 11 studios being equipped.
The new software will cover the complete digital audio workflow, supporting production and playout of radio news programming as well as music scheduling.
In addition, explains Netia, JRTV needed a content acquisition and archiving system able to ingest, index, search, browse, retrieve and store its content. This includes the digitization of more than 100,000 hours of existing analog audio sources as well as stored digital multi-language content located in a centralized music library.
“We needed to streamline and rationalize our entire production process from recording to distribution and archiving,” said Mr. Adnan Muhisen, director of Engineering at JRTV Radio. “Thanks to Netia and its partner Heat, we were able to find a turnkey solution that is easy to use and allows us to simplify our workflow, while also ensuring accurate management of our valuable assets to the benefit of our audience.”
Netia teamed up with its long-standing partner and Jordan-based distributor in the region, Heat.
