On-Hertz introduces Nubo, its cloud-based radio production studio
On-Hertz, virtual audio specialist for the broadcast and media industries, has unveiled Nubo, an all-in-one cloud-based radio production studio available as a service. According to the company, with just a web browser and a mic, users can sign in and be on-air in minutes “from anywhere and at any time”. Suitable for both large and small organizations, Nubo is scalable thanks to its Docker-based architecture. The system offers secure connections and “frees” operators from unsecured remote desktop connections.
Nubo integrates with existing workflows and is compatible with most automation software on the market. Thanks to its on-board AoIP capabilities and the fact that it’s already interconnected with systems like Dalet and Netia, users can import playlists directly into Nubo.
The On-Hertz solution includes features such as low latency contribution and monitoring, playout, mixing — including automixing, N-Minus, talkback —, and full-blown processing like parametric EQs and dynamics. Furthermore, Nubo manages up to six WebRTC contributors accessible from uniquely generated URL links, one VoIP Phone (SIP), one AoIP transmission codec (SIP/Opus) and up to 10 separate WebRTC monitoring/talkback feeds (for technicians and producers, etc.). In addition, all web contribution channels benefit from the same top-notch processing as well as a dedicated N-1 bus, even for contributions from smartphones or tablets.
On-Hertz Co-Founder and CEO Benjamin Lardinoit describes Nubo as an “all-in-one ubiquitous service”: “It’s a complete virtual studio in the cloud not only from the perspective of contribution but all around,” he said. “It responds perfectly to our current scenario and the need to work remotely from home, not only for presenters and journalists but also for technical teams. It provides a future-proof solution as the broadcasting industry continues to migrate toward decentralized operations, while maintaining quality.”
