NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Comms Australia’s ABC has installed the Riedel Artist Trunk Navigator system to support a VoIP-based communications network that connects producers, journalists, and presenters working at ABC bureaus across the country. By simplifying the networking of geographically diverse Artist digital matrix intercom systems over 80 VoIP trunk lines, the Artist Trunk Navigator is said to facilitate “simpler, more efficient, and more reliable communications between sites during production and broadcast.” Riedel’s Artist Trunk Navigator software connects each of ABC’s existing Artist intercom systems to a central trunk master via a WAN connection. The Riedel technology dynamically allocates either analogue or digital (AES3) audio trunks between up to 32 Artist intercom systems on VoIP lines. Workflow management NETIA showcased its Media Assist software suite at Broadcast Asia earlier this month. The company demonstrated how the new suite enables content owners and content producers to access, retrieve and share or distribute their digital assets to any platform. NETIA also highlighted the media management, editing, and delivery workflows possible with Media Assist modules designed for mobile devices. Quality Analysis Video Clarity has re-engineered RTM Manager, its central management application for the RTM real-time audio and video monitoring products. The interface has been re-designed and operational scheduling functions have been added. RTM systems now also include an RTM Manager Server in order to accelerate data transfer and eliminate dependency on FTP. “With the seemingly exponential growth in the number of channels being offered, some of our customers are increasing the number of RTM systems they use at one time, and in turn they need a way to run all of those systems efficiently,” said Blake Homan, president and founder of Video Clarity. “We gave RTM Manager a boost in speed and functionality so that anyone who’s using multiple RTM units can control all of their systems at once, and do more with the systems more quickly.” 22 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 102 JUNE 2015
