The latest version of WO Automation for Radio includes enhancements for broadcasters conducting “distributed operations” and remote work.
WideOrbit said these improvements help users manage station operations with a decentralized staff, run programming from home or elsewhere via mobile devices, manage content and playlists remotely, and integrate with other systems like MusicMaster and WO Traffic.
According to the company, “Native apps can be installed and operated from virtually anywhere there’s an internet connection.” This includes desktop environments running macOS, Windows or Linux, as well as on iOS mobile devices.
Also, a new“Stop Media Asset Workflow Action” allows on-air assets to be stopped automatically or on-demand. Plus, “Content Import Prioritization” streamlines the downloading of important content first whether from local drives or FTP sites.
At the 2022 NAB Show this April, WideOrbit will demonstrate WO Automation for Radio running natively on Mac and Linux.
