At IBC2014 Netia is highlighting its Media Assist software suite. The system, says the firm, unites the functionality of its radio broadcast automation and media management products with a SQL database to provide a multimedia asset management system with an array of production tools. The solution, which is designed to allow users to manage different types of content, in any format, on any platform, from anywhere, also makes it easier to move media among sites.
The Media Assist software allows journalists to work through a browser-based interface and to go mobile while maintaining the ability to access, search, edit and repurpose content. Netia has released Media Assist modules engineered for smartphones and tablets, and the company will provide demonstrations of the modules’ functionality throughout the show.
Based on a service-oriented architecture (SOA), Media Assist operational benefits, says the company, include increased modularity, optimal scalability through the improvement or addition of services, third-party connectivity through a Web services API, and straightforward and cost-effective maintenance.
