NETIA today announced that the company's iSnippet audio editing tool for iPhone(R) and iPad(R) devices is now available on the iTunes(R) App Store. Sharing the same look and ergonomic principles as the Snippet desktop interface available within NETIA's acclaimed Radio-Assist(TM) radio automation software suite, iSnippet allows iOS device users not only to edit and index media from their mobile devices, but also to record and export ready-to-broadcast assets from the in-studio Radio-Assist database.
"Used along with Radio-Assist, iSnippet facilitates mobile access to both content and production tools, in turn enabling more collaborative and more efficient creation of rich, relevant news and entertainment content," said Isabelle Sost, communications and field marketing director at NETIA. "For broadcast operations of any size, this streamlining of end-to-end multimedia production and publication workflows, along with seamless linking of internal and external resources, is proving to be a key competitive advantage."
As an all-in-one remote audio-editing solution, iSnippet gives field reporters and others valuable Radio-Assist audio-editing capabilities -- familiar from the desktop -- on their portable devices. No longer cut off from in-studio resources such as scripts and recorded content, as well as the tools with which to edit that content, the field reporter using iSnippet now can edit audio for inclusion in news stories, or review and read scripts for upcoming segments.
Supporting AAC, ALAC, and LPCM audio formats, iSnippet allows users to record, edit, and export their audio files to the studio. During recording, the user may adjust the recording volume, insert markers, and activate screen locking. Edit capabilities include vertical and horizontal zoom, playout of audio from inside or outside markers, insertion of audio from the app's cutting bin, and file insertion. The edited files themselves may be sent raw or as a master file (MP2/AAC/ALAC/AIFF/WAVE) to an FTP server, or directly to the Radio-Assist database along with an index file. iSnippet also enables field reporters and journalists to import audio files from applications including Luci and Report-IT.
