SHEMS FM, Tunisian radio, Radio-Assist 8, BroadcastPro
SHEMS FM, a new privately-owned radio station in Tunisia has invested in NETIA’s Radio-Assist 8 suite of digital audio automation software to streamline the delivery of its content to a number of online channels.
The new installation will support both traditional and Internet broadcast operations using only uncompressed WAV files, and enable SHEMS FM to establish efficient media logging, management, and production for its Internet streaming, podcasts, and on-demand services.
"Our broadcast model requires a robust and flexible solution for managing and preparing a tremendous volume of high-quality content for various Internet-based services," said Fathi Bhoury, general manager at SHEMS FM. "The Radio-Assist 8 software offers valuable functionality across our full production and delivery workflow."
Radio-Assist will be installed on 16 workstations to provide SHEMS FM with a complete toolset for streaming content using both automatic playout and the live playout features within the Air-DDO broadcast module, as well as for radio on demand and podcasting. Radio-Assist users will also perform highly automated logging on full-quality WAV content and logging of lower-quality content for legal purposes as well as to track broadcast content.
"The Radio-Assist 8 installation at SHEMS FM will streamline delivery of content through a number of online channels, in turn providing customers with convenient access to quality online radio services," said Pascal Cima, export manager at NETIA. "The software’s high degree of automation and ability to manage full-quality and lower-quality versions of media within a single workflow offer significant savings with respect to time and storage overhead."
