Editing speed is essential
Tom Herlaar Presenter NPO Radio 5
NPO Radio 5 is a Dutch Public Radio station which serves its audience through news, information and music.
Tom Herlaar: ‘Our journalists want an easy program which they can start using after just 10 minutes of training. And the software should be intuitive. It should have shortcuts and lots of tricks which make their lives easier. For EO, audio editing is an important part of the radio production process. The SmartTrack editor in OmniPlayer is the perfect tool for our journalists, allowing them to edit items easily and quickly, ready for broadcast or publication on our website, app or social media.’
The SmartTrack audio editor works on a standard OmniPlayer workstation, and journalists only need a short introduction to get started. There’s no need for expensive hardware or extensive knowledge of complex editing systems.
Editing while recording is a key feature. While an interview is still ongoing, another journalist can start editing and have it ready for broadcast immediately.
Tom Herlaar: ‘OmniPlayer provides quick audio editing, in a great way.’
