Arrakis Systems will be showing a new automation system to the NAB Show audience next month.
New~Wave is a Windows 7-based automation designed to handle the rapidly evolving automation environment.
According to Arrakis, “It is designed specifically for playing audio files from hard disk, Internet streams, FTP-stored audio files, MP3 players, smartphones, text-to-speech and much more.” It is aimed at broadcast or Internet duties.
Additionally it can multitask and “play live broadcasts, automated broadcasts, podcasts and stream for Internet radio ... all at the same time.” New~Wave is considered fault-tolerant and should not allow dead air. It has voice-tracking, satellite automation, on-air, simulcast, remote control, RDS, numerous Web-friendly applications and multiple scheduling module features. It can handle WAV, MPEG 2 and MP3 files.
Arrakis feels the New~Wave system is easy to use and simple to learn. It is compatible with the company’s ARC series consoles.
