Netia is unveiling version 8.2 of the company’s Radio-Assist digital audio software suite at the 2014 NAB Show. The latest release of Netia’s flagship software features three enhancements.
The cloud-based management for Radio-Assist allows users to access the system database from any network-connected workstation. Particularly valuable for multisite radio broadcasters, says the firm, this capability enables authorized users anywhere to access, retrieve, and work on the same content, without the need for media transfers. In addition to enabling faster, more productive operations through shared media access, adds Netia, this permits broadcasters to reduce reliance on server infrastructures and, lower the total cost of ownership.
Netia’s Snippet range of editing tools within Radio-Assist automation products is now available for iOS devices. Sharing the same look and ergonomic principles as the Snippet desktop interface, the new iPhone- and iPad-compatible iSnippet tool allows field reporters and other remote users to enjoy the Radio-Assist audio editing capabilities on their portable devices.
Also available in Radio-Assist 8.2 is the new teleprompter module (shown), giving presenters and journalists visual access to news scripts, which scroll continuously down the presenter’s screen. The module, which is linked to the playout system in the studio, is customizable and features adjustable text size, color selection, automatic speed control that adapts to reading speed as well as configurable read length.
