Swiss Radio Station Helps TV Viewers Participate With BCE’s StudioTalk

BNJ FM, a French-Language radio station in Switzerland, has expanded its audience appeal by televising its programs with a new Broadcasting Center Europe (BCE) StudioTalk integrated production studio.

The system offers many branding options such as predefined sets and skins and also allows the integration of new elements for maximum customization. The sets are then synchronized with the interactions and scenarios of the programs.

StudioTalk also allows the easy integration of promos, commercials, music clips, stories or any other visual content in your playlists, as well as an automatic camera management system and the display of secondary events matching each particular program.

While BNJ already has a portal where its viewers can access video content (BNJ.tv), the station wanted to allow its audience to watch the programs live and even interact on-demand videos afterwards. StudioTalk provides the station with a complete video production infrastructure that supports the live production of the daily shows and streaming to its website as well as its social networks.

Olivier Waty, Technology & Project Director at BCE, said that watching radio is the new trend in the radio/TV market and StudioTalk is designed to address that in a variety of ways.

He said that because of its experience in radio and TV, BCE was looking forward to meet the needs of its customers to enrich the radio world. StudioTalk is a simple solution that offers professional features and a final rendering of the highest quality.
