At BITAM 2014, NETIA will showcase its new Media Assist software suite, which builds on the strengths of the company’s product portfolio to provide a complete solution for managing workflows, from ingest through to delivery. The company will demonstrate how the new suite enables content owners and content producers — from radio broadcasters and television stations to organizations maintaining media archives — to access, retrieve, and share or distribute their digital assets or media to any platform.
NEW NETIA Media Assist Software Suite
The NETIA Media Assist software suite unites the unique functionality of NETIA’s proven radio broadcast automation and media management products with a SQL database to provide a robust multimedia asset management system with a full complement of production tools. With this powerful new solution, users can manage all types of content, in any format, on any platform, anywhere, at any time. The software suite also makes it easier for users to move media among sites.
To enable convenient use across a facility or organization, the Media Assist software suite provides both a rich-client platform and a Web-based interface that can be displayed on a simple Internet browser. Both GUIs have been designed to assure effective ergonomics. The option of working through a browser-based interface allows journalists and reporters to go fully mobile while maintaining their ability to access, search, edit, or repurpose content. In fact, NETIA already has released Media Assist modules engineered for smartphones and tablets, and the company will provide demonstrations of their functionalities throughout the show.
Media Assist is based on a service-oriented architecture, so it offers all the additional advantages of a client-server model of computing. Key benefits to operations include increased modularity, optimal scalability through the improvement or addition of services, third-party connectivity through a Web services API, and straightforward and cost-effective maintenance.
