RCS Zetta powers media organisations'
workflows in five main ways..
s media organisations consolidate,
the challenge of harmonising business
objectives, corporate cultures and workflows
bubbles to the surface as former competitors
combine and seek future success together.
Often the challenge is developing systems
that combine the assets of different legacy
systems and compiling them into one that
could be understood by a centralised playout
How RCS Zetta supercharges workflow:
True Collaboration - RCS Zetta eliminates
productivity-killers by allowing programmers
to work on separate parts of a log
simultaneously without their changes undoing
those of others.
Local Metadata Access - Why hobble the
workflow of employees working remotely?
Wouldn't it be far better to give them access
to the same metadata they have when
they're in the office? The answer is apparent,
and the benefits extend beyond enhancing
productivity, to producing better, more timely
Replication - Replicate entire channels
to other locations. Build a library and
your channel assets will be replicated and
delivered via the Internet. Zetta's replication
function also offers robust disaster
Powerful Auditioning - Zetta
automation further enhances the
workflow with its new auditioning
module and minibar. These tools
make it fast and easy to find the
exact assets that are required.
Jumping quickly to a song intro,
hook, or ending is convenient, and
marking a point to jump to can be
done with a single customisable
touch of a button. Different audio file formats
and sampling rates pose no problem for Zetta
either, because it easily mixes and matches
content regardless of how it is stored another boon to smooth auditioning and
Mobility Matters - When personnel are on
the road, they rely on Zetta2GO, the mobile,
browser-based version of Zetta. Zetta2GO
offers the same functionality as Zetta. The
interface and user experience are also similar
The RCS Zetta "eliminates productivity-killers"
in many respects, thus maintaining the
productivity of personnel when they're on the
road. In fact, the two products are so similar
that it is sometimes difficult for users to look
at the screen and tell them apart.
The Zetta Difference
RCS has drawn on its decades-long
experience working with thousands of radio
stations to create its Zetta radio automation
Zetta takes a modular approach
to workflow, which means separate
playout, sequencing, and UI. All
functions have their own launcher
app. Workflows are only limited
by the imagination of stations
deploying the multi-user automation
system, and Zetta automation and
playout can be controlled via the
Zetta2GO suite of applications from
a smartphone or tablet.
ADTH Sets Benchmark in Media
Security with TOLKA Watermark
Atlanta DTH, Inc. (ADTH) has chosen BroadcastAsia 2018 as the APAC region launch
platform for a major new development in broadcast media content protection...
cheduled for demonstration on the ADTH
stand, 4Q2-06, TOLKA Watermark provides
uniquely efficient safeguarding of creative
content from revenue loss arising from illegal
sharing, copying or redistribution.
This goes beyond the capabilities of
conditional access and digital rights
management systems where protection stops
once viewing access is granted. The system is
based on four component elements: A TOLKA
Watermark server with internet access; TOLKA
Watermark set-top-boxes; a TOLKA Player;
and a TOLKA analysis workstation which
checks content and identifies each watermark
in the return path.
"TOLKA Watermark is by far the most
effective and affordable method of content
protection available," says Karlton Burn, ADTH
Senior Vice President, APAC. "Watermarking
analysis and decoding are performed as
a cloud-based supporting service which
identifies any playout devices associated
with illegal use of protected content. Warning
or blackout functions can be automatically
activated in those devices."
Running on a dedicated server incorporating
The TOLKA Watermark encoding server
TOLKA Watermark system structure
the company's patented Digital Signature
Engine, TOLKA Watermark generates and
inserts a digital signature specific to each
customer's set-top box viewing interface.
Each digital signature is encrypted securely
and invisibly within the transmitted program
If suspected content is identified as an illegal
copy made from a device on a direct-to-home
operator's network, TOLKA Watermark can
match the associated content with the unique
signature associated with each TOLKA player.
