Moroccan radio group Atlantic FM, part of the Eco-Medias Group, has upgraded to version 8.2 of NETIA's Radio-Assist digital audio software suite.
The software is a complete solution that covers the entire distribution channel from ingest to distribution, and Atlantic FM relies on the software in areas including news, commercials, and music scheduling.
The installation consists of more than 32 workstations for editing, planning, and recording. Operators use NETIA's broadcast module for production and distribution. New features introduced in Radio-Assist 8.2 include cloud-based management, giving users the ability to access the system database from any network-connected workstation.
The upgrade also provides Atlantic FM the foundation for a complete shift to digital broadcasting while allowing operators retain familiar functionality and interfaces they know from the initial Radio-Assist system deployed in 2006.
"Radio-Assist offers an extensive range of features critical to the operation of a modern broadcast station," said Rachid Mounaouar, technical director at Atlantic FM. "The upgrade to version 8.2 was an easy and logical decision. Also, as we move forward with our migration to digital operations, the NETIA software will support a fluid transition."
Jean-Michel Bombois, operations project manager at NETIA, added: "The new installation at Atlantic FM demonstrates not only the continued strength of our Radio-Assist software suite in the MEA area, but also the value that broadcasters see in the significantly extended feature set of version 8.2."
Founded in 2006, Atlantic FM is one of Morocco’s top radio stations.
