Your feet hurt. All of your senses have been totally overstimulated. And your diet for the past several hours has consisted of hot dogs, cheese fries and soda. This can only mean one thing. You’re in Las Vegas attending another NAB Show.
How quickly the 12 months seem to go by. Soon it will be time to pack your bags, make the flight to Nevada, reconnect with old acquaintances, make new connections and ramp yourself up on the latest broadcast technology.
For RCS, this is a special event because at this year’s show we’re celebrating our 40th anniversary. Stop by and visit us as booth N2519. The birthday party will be taking place during Happy Hour on April 9th at 3 PM. But there’s more than cake and ice cream to be excited about.
A new member has joined the RCS family. Athens-based online audio tech company, Radiojar (now to become RCS Technologies Greece) has come onboard to deliver a centralized, cloud-based audio playout platform that can cohesively combine the seamless elements of broadcast radio and transition these listening experiences into other audio platforms.
Reflecting on the acquisition, Philippe Generali, RCS President/CEO said: “Complementing our recent announcements about our cloud-based scheduling, playout and disaster recovery services, this acquisition will help RCS bring an even wider range of sophisticated online broadcast tools to our customers. In the near future, using cloud-based technology, it will be possible to launch a brand-new radio service across broadcast and digital within minutes of the original idea. It’s the ultimate ‘pop-up’ radio station, if you will.”
RCS may be celebrating its 40th birthday, but its history of leadership and innovation is still forging ahead. We are thrilled to be sharing with our customers an incredible new way of giving your station the best possible low-cost disaster recovery insurance, and it’s based on our brand new service, Zetta Cloud.
Zetta Cloud’s Disaster Recovery system continuously backs up your database including audio and schedule, and then sends it to the Cloud. It’s an ongoing background process that never affects your normal workflow.
In the case of a serious event that disables your radio station, Zetta Cloud takes over, allowing you to stream your station audio directly from the Cloud to your transmitter, web stream or emergency studios. When your station is ready to resume normal service, it takes just a couple of minutes for Zetta Cloud to restore your database, with audio, to resume normal service.
Think of Zetta Cloud as a crucially important insurance policy. For while we sincerely hope that you never have to experience an event that severely disrupts your radio station, if something does go horribly wrong, you will be very glad that Zetta Cloud has your back.
