National Christian Broadcaster UCB (United Christian Broadcasters) has gone live with a new radio automation and scheduling system, Zetta and gSelector, making it the first completely virtualised radio system in the UK.
It is also the first to use Microsoft’s Hyper V3 and the first with an integrated all digital audio desk environment from Wheatstone.
Ian De Soyza, UCB’s Director of Technology said, ‘This implementation marks a significant milestone in UCB and RCS UK’s history, because it is the first completely virtualised radio system in the UK, and only the 2nd in Europe. These combined technologies provide a future-proof solution which we believe will serve UCB well for at least the next decade. It will enable UCB to be more resilient and will allow us to support emerging partners and affiliates.’
RCS Vice President of RCS EMEA region, Sven Andrae attended the official launch today at UCB (Dec 7).
