NETIA Announces Media Logging Range of Advanced Monitoring Solutions for Radio and Television Professionals

New offering is fully integrated with NETIA's flagship Manreo and Radio-Assist media-management solutions (February 14, 2006)

NETIA, a major provider of software solutions for managing media content, is launching a powerful new range of audio and video monitoring solutions for the radio and television markets. This new offering, which is fully integrated with NETIA's flagship Manreo and Radio-Assist media-management solutions, is comprised of Chronos and Dragster software.

Chronos automatically captures audio and video feeds during a broadcast and offers real-time MPEG-4 encoding for video and MP3 or WAV encoding for audio. Its user-friendly interface allows operators to view video data on demand, 24/7. Users can retrieve playlists without interrupting the recording and the system automatically archives and purges recorded files stored locally or on the network.

Dragster is a powerful real-time engine that monitors the appearance of specific images among thousands of clips, triggering such actions as recording, switching the grid, playback from a server, and notification in a database. It features full-screen image recognition as well as recognition of parts of images.

"In today's media-rich environment, radio and television personnel need solutions that truly deliver on the promise of automatic, continuous capture of audio and video feeds and deep, comprehensive searching technologies," said Xavier de Vynck, vice president of business development at NETIA. "NETIA's Media Logging range combines these powerful functionalities to give users complete control over their monitoring needs."

Possible applications of the Media Logging range include compliance with legal requirements, monitoring of the competition, and fast retrieval of recorded sound and video. Dragster is currently used by France 2, France 3 and its regional channels, as well as Canal+, LCI, and TDF to monitor more than 200 programs daily. Another French broadcaster, M6, uses the software to automatically cut into features of the daily and local editions of its "6 Minutes" news program.

NETIA is a leading provider of software solutions for managing and broadcasting television and radio content. The company offers two ranges of audio (Radio-Assist) and video (Manreo) products designed to allow content holders to manage all of their processes, from capture to multichannel broadcasting -- over terrestrial channels, the Internet, mobile devices, etc. Netia's products are used worldwide in over 40 countries by over 200 prestigious customers, including RFI, Radio France, BBC, BSkyB, ABC, TF1, Canal+, LCI/Orange, RAI, Radio Vaticana, HRT, SRTC, RTM, VOV, MOI South Africa, Mediacorp, RTBF, Lifetime TV, SBS, RTL, FR3, and many others.
