Medi 1 installs Air-DDO
MOROCCO: Medi 1 Radio will go live by the end of 2012 with Netia’s Air-DDO, the broadcasting module of the manufacturer’s Radio-Assist 8 automation system. Medi 1 will replace its existing CartStack on-air system for broadcast operations with an optimised workflow and increased automation using Air-DDO.
Medi 1 has been a Netia user for almost 15 years. It has been using Radio-Assist for production and scheduling since the station moved from analogue to digital in 1998. The Tangier, Morocco-based station was the first Radio-Assist customer outside Europe, and its adoption of Radio-Assist 8 and the Air-DDO broadcast module is the latest milestone in its continuing quest to deliver high-quality multilingual radio services to audiences across the region.
‘After our long and successful relationship with Netia, Medi 1's move to Radio-Assist 8 last year is a logical progression, and one that we were confident would bring us yet another step up in the efficiency and quality of our operation,’ said Ahmed Abakkali, IT manager at Medi 1 Radio. ‘Our staff is now completely familiar with the system, so the switch to Air-DDO will be an easy upgrade that will streamline our service even more.’
‘It's a real pleasure to work with the people at Medi 1 Radio, who have been loyal and enthusiastic Radio-Assist customers for so long,’ added Jean Michel Bombois, operations project manager at Netia. ‘Radio is exceptionally important in the region covered by Medi 1, and the station is always keen to deliver an outstanding product. Now, with the adoption of Air-DDO, Medi 1 can be assured of substantial gains in efficiency and production quality.’
