A new digital media system for live-assist or satellite operation from Broadcast Electronics (BE) will make its debut during the 2008 NAB Show.
New features of the AudioVAULT X studio automation platform include double-donut segues, personalized studio “mashups” and interactive talent collaboration.
“Radio broadcasters are telling us that they want to do more: more programs, more localization, more of radio in general,” said Ray Miklius, BE vice-president of studio systems. “But, at the same time,” he said, “they have fewer studios and even fewer people in those studios. The new AudioVAULT X platform is designed to fill that gap.”
The double-donut segue editor enables seamless voicetracking and the localizing of multiple stations from a centralized studio. Functions include the ability to drop voices or other segments into the middle of songs or jingles twice.
Personalized studio “mashups” combine studio tools and applications from more than one source into a single workspace.
AudioVAULT X also has an enhanced search engine and more tools to categorize and manage audio assets. A multi-thread engine enables talent in different studios to work collectively and in real-time off the same log.
