CLARET, France — Aug. 4, 2016 — NETIA today announced that its radio automation and playout software suite is being rolled out across Thailand by state-owned public radio broadcaster MCOT. Supplied by NETIA’s Southeast Asia master dealer, Broadcast Communications International (BCI), the NETIA software will enable MCOT to automate and enhance both the production workflow and playout operations at its national and local radio stations.
“NETIA solutions address the requirements of today’s distributed radio broadcast operations, helping users to realize greater efficiency and flexibility in delivering audiovisual content to their audiences,” said Colin Tan, director at BCI. “By uniting robust functionality with intuitive user interfaces and streamlining the sharing of assets across stations, NETIA’s radio automation and playout software empowers broadcasters such as MCOT to provide timely, compelling programming across all of its stations.”
With its headquarters in Bangkok, MCOT operates one international, seven national, one district, and 52 provincial radio stations, as well as two terrestrial free-to-air television channels and two satellite television channels. Working with BCI, MCOT is installing six stand-alone workstations running NETIA software at its Bangkok facilities and another 18 such systems across 18 regional sites. The NETIA playout system and radio automation modules installed on these workstations will enable MCOT station users to record, edit, or prepare content for broadcast and distribution.
