New Moroccan radio station Luxe Radio has installed Netia’s Radio-Assist 8 suite of audio automation software, according to the manufacturer.
In addition to supporting the station’s production and broadcast workflow, it also automatically streams the broadcast to Luxe’s online portal, Anaka.ma.
“As we strive to deliver the best of Moroccan and international life, Netia’s Radio-Assist 8 software suite provides a complete, intuitive, and efficient platform that ensures the quality and continuity of our radio and Internet broadcasts,” said Abdessamad Aboulghali, president of Luxe Radio.
The project was implemented in close partnership with systems integrator AVTM - EUROCOM Morocco – based in Casablanca – which ensured the integration and technical implementation of the whole project.
“The installation at Luxe Radio demonstrates the Radio-Assist 8 software suite’s ability to support both traditional and online productions and broadcasting from one comprehensive yet easy-to-use interface,” said Christophe Carniel, president and CEO, Netia.
The Netia installation in Casablanca includes 15 workstations tailored to the jobs of journalists and technicians, with two dedicated to playout and a backup used to provide redundancy. Together, these production workstations cover the entire production workflow, providing tools such as Netia’s Radio-Assist 8 Feder-All, which automatically designs and generates schedule templates while giving users all of the functionality required to prepare a playlist.
Two servers run Netia’s DBShare, which systematically maintains the synchronous redundancy of all the metadata the system produces and the consistency of database contents. The media logging module within Radio-Assist 8 records everything that is broadcast, with its Feed-In/Feed-Plan automatically capturing and recording all audio feeds for compliance with legal requirements.
