Automated Radio Shows
As more radio stations are broadcasting over the Internet and DTT channels to increase their audience and advertising revenues, Orad has developed a complete solution which visualizes radio programing by broadcasting the radio talent, real time 3D graphics, and promos as a multi camera production. RadioTV is completely automated and relies on unique audio detection software to identify the talent's voice and determine which camera should be on air. Camera switching does not require human intervention and the existing workflow is maintained without any additional costs. RadioTV offers a complete set of 3D graphic templates including supers, titles, logos, promos and other elements, and supports the playback of full frame videos, opening new revenue streams from advertising and sponsorships.
With RadioTV, both the video and the graphic channels are controlled from the same user interface and by the same operator. Items can be executed either manually, from GPI or by the radio automation system.
RadioTV is completely automated and relies on unique audio switcher software which executes camera cuts automatically. The software identifies the radio talent's voice and determines which camera should be on air along with the relevant graphics. The "Audio Switcher" application identifies which microphone is on air and releases a command to the internal video controller to cut to the relevant camera. Smart logic can define when to cut to each camera, what to do in situations of silence in the studio and if several people are talking simultaneously. Different logic can be applied to different shows, depending on their specific requirements. RadioTV's embedded logic eliminates the need for a video switcher and a dedicated operator, resulting in a simple set up and low operational costs.
