The NAB Spring Convention in Las Vegas, is where hundreds of thousands of broadcasters, developers, entrepreneurs and vendors come together to show you where the industries of Radio, TV, Film and Video are headed, and always creates a buzz heard throughout the calendar year.
During the show, RCS will release Version 3.0 of the Advanced Playout – automation system – Zetta.
President/CEO Philippe Generali commented on the release, “Zetta continues to expand its impressive list of features. The release is centered on enhancements driven directly from consumer user groups. The mobile functionality in Zetta is unmatched and you will continue to see our product lines grow in this direction. These are exciting times for technology.”
Since 2008, the ground-breaking Zetta radio automation software has been evolving in a way it was designed to do from its very inception: To be able to adjust to the demands of the market, to incorporate the demands of its customers and take advantage of giant-leaps in technology.
Since the release of Version 2 of Zetta, the RCS team has been continually improving what was already a state-of- the-art system. Version 3 not only delivers an improved workflow and better functionality, but also a dramatic, deeper push into the mobile world.
Starting with Zetta Version 3, if you have a PC or a Mac, or any mobile device – phone, tablet or phablet! – running a browser through any operating system: you can remotely control the On Air screen, do Voice Tracking, review your log or fire off Hotkeys.
Version 3 also fulfills the vision of not only meeting the rich legacy of the world-famous RCS “Living Log®“, but surpassing it with its advanced integration with the world’s most powerful content scheduler, GSelector. Taking advantage of the true multi-user capabilities in GSelector where changes made in either system are shown everywhere almost instantly.
The Zetta Version 3 Multi- Site Voice Tracking Tool is going to be a revolutionary aid for those who have to manage shows in multiple markets, and are working hard to keep it local.
The new Z-Player lets you manage and create loops from songs in the library, and even goes so far as to emulate a CD Deck, typical of what you might find in a club.
One of the biggest innovations the users will notice is a true MultiTrack Editor, the like of which, has never before been seen in a playout system. In this new tool, audio is left in its native format, sessions can be saved and audio mixed down faster than in real-time. This allows the user to add the resulting audio to the library, drag it to a hot key for playback later, or play it directly out of the Editor. Zetta is all about flexibility, and our Zetta development motto is, “No Limits”.
