All India Radio upgrades with Radio-Assist 8
INDIA: All India Radio (AIR) – a division of Prasar Bharati group – is replacing its existing news and radio automation system with a Netia Radio-Assist 8.1 family of digital audio software programs. Not limited to AIR's national broadcast station, the project will include an additional 48 local stations – comprising more than 1,000 workstations.
The project is being coordinated by Delhi-based systems integrator Progressive Infotech, which Netia will work with to provide the installation and licenses, as well as server infrastructure, audio boards, encoder, hardware, training and local support.
‘AIR's mission is to inform, educate and entertain listeners across India and the installation of Radio-Assist will aid the broadcaster in providing this programming with efficiency,’ said Mustapha Rezzoug, head of international business development at Netia. ‘The scalability and robust feature set of Radio-Assist will give AIR a much greater degree of flexibility in managing and delivering its complex and growing array of broadcast radio channels.’
Due to its Unicode compatibility, the Netia software will enable AIR to broadcast in 17 different languages and dialects.
