imgClaret, France (December 20, 2012)-Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) has upgraded its regional station in Ipoh to Netia's Radio-Assist 8.1.

Netia's Radio-Assist family of digital audio software programs has been in use at RTM for more than a decade, and the Ipoh-based station worked with Broadcast Communications International (BCI) to transition to the latest software release and begin working with new features including the Activity Watcher module.

Based in Kuala Lumpur, RTM operates four television channels (TV1, TV2, IMRT, Muzik Aktif), six national radio stations, two international stations (Voice of Malaysia), and 16 regional stations. Today, 13 of those regional centers are digitized, due to complete installations of Radio-Assist software, which covers each part of the production and broadcast workflow.

With its Radio-Assist 8.1 upgrade, RTM in Ipoh will gain a variety of added features. Radio-Assist 8.1's new audit module, also called Activity Watcher, enables administrators at RTM to trace and check all modifications made on the playlist and across the entire Radio Assist 8.1 system. With this tool, users can keep tabs on details such as the users who have connected and disconnected and what kind of items have been deleted.
