CLARET, France -- Sept. 16, 2015 -- NETIA today announced that its new AirPlayList 2.0 module for the NETIA Media Assist software suite was recognized with a Best of Show award at IBC2015 by Radio World International, published by NewBay Media's Broadcast/Video Group. A panel of engineers judged the nominated products according to the criteria of innovation, feature set, cost efficiency, and performance in serving the industry.
"We are honored that Radio World International judges appreciate the significant benefits and value that the AirPlayList 2.0 module brings to the modern broadcast operation," said Thierry Gandilhon, CEO of NETIA. "Designed to facilitate more flexible and cost-effective broadcast of numerous channels, the module simplifies multichannel playout, enables tremendous efficiency gains, and ensures the high reliability essential to broadcast applications."
Using the AirPlayList 2.0 module with the NETIA Media Assist software suite, operators can manage all types of content and automate conventional or Web radio playout from any place at any time. The new module facilitates automated playout of multiple radio channels simultaneously and with guaranteed redundancy. Audio-over-IP-compliant and encompassing the AES67 interoperability standard, the AirPlayList 2.0 module supports broadcasting via traditional physical sound cards or IP-based virtual drivers.
Built on a distributed architecture, the AirPlayList 2.0 module augments the overall reliability and robustness of playout. In high-demand scenarios, the AirPlayList 2.0 user interface supports centralized control and monitoring of many different playout systems installed across different servers. Users can readily access and broadcast media or channels located within separate databases. In automating playout, the AirPlayList 2.0 module also reduces the need for human intervention as well as the likelihood of error. With the Web-based interface, remote users can easily access the module to monitor or supervise playout on each channel and the status of media.
