(Vienna, Austria--January 13, 2014) Mongolian National Public Radio (MNB) has selected an archiving solution from NOA Audio Solutions to power the broadcaster’s move to a completely digital archive. More than 20,000 hours of audio materials stored on tape, cassette, CD, and digital files – representing the bulk of the country’s audio broadcasting heritage – will be archived using the new system.
On the air since 1934, and with archivable tapes dating from 1954, MNB chose NOA technology after extensive research which included dialog with technicians at the Voice of Vietnam, where NOA has been used successfully for the last five years to digitize the VOV archive.
Replacing its existing archiving facility, MNB’s NOA installation comprises the jobDB workflow system, mediaButler transcoding engine, dual NOA Record tape ingest systems, and DBScripter for standard metadata exports. A standard fileset supporting both XML and Broadcast Wave Format (BWF) is provided as part of the Archive Information Package.
“MNB joins a growing group of NOA users in developing countries such as Vietnam, Mexico and Sudan,” said Christophe Kummer CEO of NOA Audio Solutions. “Our record shows that users like this find the system very effective and easy to use, and we are delighted to welcome MNB into the NOA family and help them tackle the challenge of digital audio archiving.”
The installation is scheduled for completion in Q1 2014.
