Jordan’s state radio broadcaster, JRTV Corp., will revamp its existing radio automation and broadcast installations with NETIA Radio Assist 8. NETIA will provide the organisation with state-of-the-art production, scheduling, workflow management and archiving software, in addition to media logging and monitoring solutions as part of its efforts to streamline JRTV’s operations and provide greater listener experience. The implementation will be undertaken in conjunction with NETIA’s Jordan-based distributor, HEAT.

NETIA radio automation and playout systems will be deployed throughout national channels and regional stations, with up to 11 studios equipped at JRTV. NETIA software will cover the entire digital audio workflow, supporting production and playout of radio news programming as well as music scheduling. The modular structure of NETIA software will enable easy integration into existing JRTV operations and archives. This, in turn, will facilitate ingest, editing, broadcast, and administration via a single user interface.

Additionally, JRTV required a comprehensive content acquisition and archiving system that is able to seamlessly ingest, index, search, browse, retrieve and store its content including digitization of more than 100,000 hours of existing analog audio sources as well as stored digital content located in a centralised music library (Arabic & Foreign).

“We needed to streamline and rationalize our entire production process from recording to distribution and archiving,” Adnan Muhisen, Director of Engineering at JRTV Radio commented.

“Thanks to NETIA and its partner HEAT, we were able to find a turnkey solution that is easy to use and allows us to simplify our workflow, while also ensuring accurate management of our valuable assets to the benefit of our audience.”
