Broadcast Electronics plans to show NAB Radio Show visitors an upgraded AudioVault digital automation platform, AudioVault V Flex.
Vice President of Studio Systems Ray Miklius said: “Radio broadcasters are telling us that they want to do more — more programs, more localization, more of radio in general. But, at the same time, they have fewer studios and even fewer people in those studios. The new AudioVault V Flex platform is designed to fill that gap.”
The platform was introduced in April; BE says it addresses operational challenges presented by multicasting, voice tracking and Web streaming.
New goodies include an advanced segue editor for handling voice-tracks and localizing station content; improvements in asset management; and a multithreaded core engine for accelerating interaction between workgroups.
Personalized studio “mashups” combine tools and applications from more than one source into a single workspace. Announcers and producers can profile workspaces unique to each show or work style or for operational continuity. V Flex will let users choose task icons from a palette of operating functions, and define the number of decks, types of navigational lists, pane sizes, layout of functions and personalized “skins” of background and color scheme preferences.
