Claret, France (August 28, 2015)—Netia has released the AirPlayList 2.0 module for its Media Assist software suite, facilitating automated playout of multiple radio channels simultaneously with redundancy.
Audio-over-IP-compliant, 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 user interface supports centralized control and monitoring of many different playout systems installed across different servers.
Users can 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 access the module to monitor or supervise playout on each channel and the status of media.
Based on the Netia Media Assist software suite, the new module is fully compatible with Netia's radio automation solution and integrates into the Netia environment. Any playlist created and generated within Netia radio automation software may be distributed via the AirPlayList 2.0 module. Logs for any broadcast item may be accessed and monitored via Netia's Air Run module.
To ensure high availability of media, AirPlayList 2.0 offers users the choice of one-to-one redundancy or a one-to-N option, in which a dedicated pool of servers ensures that even in the event of a disaster, a secondary server can recover media and provide an uninterrupted broadcast.
