The National broadcaster of Djibouti, Radio Television of Djibouti, selects Etere for an end-to-end broadcast system with MAM to deliver business benefits including operational efficiency and enhanced collaboration.

Etere brings clarity to processes and provides a unified management of all assets, resources, processes and workflows at Radio Television of Djibouti. The Etere Ecosystem of software solutions uses smart technologies to provides a complete orchestration and control with real-time monitoring on a centralised management console.

Etere Media Asset Management adds visibility and efficiency across business units at Radio Television of Djibouti. With its implementation, users can automate tasks and optimise resources easily. Metadata is the link that connects all the assets in the system. Etere MAM allows unlimited insertion of flexi-metadata to contain a wide variety of information including images, format, title, duration, audio, closed captions, segments and episodes.

With Etere MAM, you have a central media library with all the data you need to repurpose assets, drive workflows and increase revenue. Etere MAM includes the Etere Agenda feature which is a centralised job repository with real-time updates. With Etere MAM, there is no need to crawl between applications to perform tasks. From a centralised interface, you can preview, approve, accept and assign tasks across departments.

Etere is accessible through Windows and Web platforms that connects teams across multiple countries and provides real-time updates from a centralized database. With Etere, you can run your workflows from any location with an internet connection. With a secured login, you have instant access to the Etere Database and Etere Cloud System from any internet browser.

Besides that, Etere also features a configurable user access rights infrastructure that integrates with Active Directory to fit into any organisational structure. Administrators can configure multiple levels of user access rights across different departments and functions. Additionally, Etere MAM's business reporting feature enables an effective cost reporting across the entire organisation. Each task can have a configurable cost calculation attached including external vendor costs, manpower, money and equipment time. Etere gives you total visibility to identify issues, optimise resources and resolve problems easily.

To maximise efficiency, Etere Resource Management provides the software tools to manage assets, human resources, systems and financial information effectively so that all company business processes are integrated into a unified workflow that is able to fit all requirements.

The system provides user-friendly and practical tools for Radio Television of Djibouti to have everything needed on a single platform, saving time and money.

The system also allows users to design, manage and execute workflows across the end-to-end media lifecycle with Etere T-Workflow.

The setup allows over 100,000 workflows to run in under one second to drive a very robust and reliable performance. It is an easy and flexible way to create or modify broadcasting procedures.

Etere provides a flexible and easy-to-use browser that is able to detect and recover potential problems automatically. All processes in the system are monitored by SNMP standard protocol. Etere SNMP Console is also capable of receiving SNMP messages sent by third-party applications and devices including network switches, routers and firewalls.

It helps users to track and manage missing materials, imported materials and regional ad insertions.
