News production is probably the most time-critical activity in Radio.The Radiomation News System has been recognised as one of the most powerful, technically advanced systems for the collection, editing and presentation of Radio Newscasts. It has been refined by journalists over many years so that it has become the perfect tool for the job. From small single local stations to the vastly greater demands of the BBC North region and PA Broadcast, we've been there - and our products reflect the experience. Radiomation news integrates text and audio production. It has the capacity to collect news actuality and text from agency sources over cable satellite or the Internet, or locally input items. It includes all of the utilities to enable the components to be worked into stories. The prepared stories can be compiled into a fully timed newscast within seconds. It allows presentation of the resulting newscast to air, either autonomously, or operator-assisted via the On Air computer in the control room. The entire newscast can be recorded and encoded for onward transfer to associated stations, or to a website as either streaming or discrete bulletins. Recent developments in Internet connectivity allow the journalists on the beat to be as connected as if they were in the office, further increasing the usefulness of a world class product.
