The new AirPlayList 2.0 module for Netia’s Media Assist software suite facilitates automated playout of multiple radio channels simultaneously and with guaranteed redundancy, says the firm.
Media Assist lets users manage all types of content — in any format, on any platform — from anywhere and at any time. Built on a distributed architecture, the AirPlayList 2.0 module augments the overall reliability and robustness of playout, claims Netia. Because the module is AES67- and AoIP-compliant, users can play out media either from a traditional physical sound card or using IP-based virtual drivers.
In high-demand scenarios, the AirPlayList 2.0 module user interface supports centralized control and monitoring of many different AirPlayList playout systems installed across different servers. Users can access any broadcast media or channels located within separate databases rather than one central database.
The module also provides a Web-based interface so remote users can monitor or supervise playout, as well as the status of media. According to the company, AirPlayList 2.0 module offers one-to-one redundancy or a one-to-N option in which a dedicated pool of servers ensures that even in the event of a disaster, a secondary server can recover media and ensure an uninterrupted broadcast.
