Atlantic FM upgrades with Netia
MOROCCO: Atlantic FM, part of the Eco-Medias Group, has upgraded to version 8.2 of Netia’s Radio-Assist digital audio software suite. The installation provides the foundation for a shift to digital broadcasting while enabling operators to take advantage of the 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. ‘Given this robust functionality and the familiarity of our operators with the Netia software, 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.’
The new installation at Atlantic FM’s Casablanca facilities comprises more than 32 workstations for editing, planning, and recording. Operators use the broadcast module for production and distribution.
‘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,’ said Jean-Michel Bombois, operations project manager at Netia. ‘Ever since the original Radio-Assist in 2006, we have worked closely with Atlantic FM to support its evolution — particularly its transition to digital — and its leadership as a foremost news source in Morocco.’
