Quincy, IL (April 12, 2010)–Broadcast Electronics (BE) is showcasing new studio automation system management tools and metadata capabilities for its logger application at the NAB Show.
BE’s AudioVAULT FleX digital automation system is sporting several new tools, including distributed asset management and integration tools to synchronize schedules and inventory across multiple sites. BE is also demonstrating an expanded segue editor and new user interfaces for the AudioVAULT FleX, which offer personalized screens customized for show or talent, plus has true IP networking for connecting multiple studios into a single operation.
Although classified as a program automation system, BE’s AudioVAULT FleX features dozens of tools that can be put together in different ways for creating, managing and airing content. Broadcasters can start with a single AudioVAULT FleX workstation for voice tracking, programming, and live assist, and expand to a multi-server, multi-site system as needed.
BE is also demonstrating its new logger for AudioVAULT. Used for capturing, analyzing and archiving audio and video, BE’s logger now includes Podcast, PPM, RDS and other metadata capabilities. It can now import PPM data and display the minute-by-minute audience graph together with program information imported from the play-out system, providing a critical analysis tool for making program decisions. It can also log metadata from HD Radio, DMB/DAB/DAB+, as well as RDS text, station volume and signal output levels and display all data in the player. The logger is compatible with all major automation systems and is available standalone or integrated into AudioVAULT.
This is the first NAB that BE is showing its 2 kW version of the STX LP transmitter line. BE is also showing TRECast, a new tool for The Radio Experience Message Manager suite.
