NETIA Media Assist Software Suite a Hub for Media Assets
In a news environment, the NETIA Media Assist software suite acts as a multimedia hub for content in any format, including audio, video, text, or images. The cloud-ready system enables radio stations to deploy their back-office applications in a dedicated SAN or host them securely outside the station's premises. By offering safe and managed access to outside entities, the station can foster cooperation and exchange with its affiliates and partner organizations.
At IBC2016, NETIA will showcase a new monitoring tool for Media Assist, giving radio staff a single, easy-to-use interface for managing and optimizing multisite workflows. Staff can now monitor priority levels on all launched processes to help minimize their impact on bandwidth, while facilitating content delivery within the group and increasing time-to-air ratios. The powerful API within Media Assist enables interoperability and integration of multiple business- and public-facing systems. In addition, broadcasters can set up several instances of the NETIA Workflow Engine to handle parallel tasks such as transcoding in order to process even more content during peak news periods. NETIA's special focus on virtualization means that demanding computational tasks, together with server components, can run in a virtualized infrastructure with minimal configuration stored on clients and minimum effect on users.
