WVCR picks AudioVAULT® 11 to play anything for the New York Capital Region

Siena College’s station is nationally recognized for its unique blend of adult hits, cultural programming, and college athletics.

Quincy Illinois, April 30, 2024 — Broadcast Electronics, part of the Elenos Group, a global leader in designing and manufacturing broadcast products, including transmitters for TV, AM, FM, HD Radio®, and media software has a long history of providing rapid, high-quality service to their customers. Recently WVCR worked with Broadcast Electronics to replace their old audio automaton system with the new BE AudioVAULT 11. WVCR broadcasts with 25,000 watts as 88.3 The Saint – We Play Anything – variety hits format complemented with long-running Spanish, Polish, Irish, and Siena College Athletics broadcasts.

“WVCR, the noncommercial, listener-supported public media service of Siena College operates a professionally formatted station to train Siena’s next generation of multimedia professionals through educational programs and hands-on experience while sharing the Franciscan tradition of Siena College with the public,” said Darin Kibbey, General Manager at WVCR. “When the time came to update our aged automaton system, we evaluated all the leading options on the market and found AudioVAULT 11 provided the best mix of simple, easy-to-use graphical user interface, powerful programming tools, and rock-solid operations that we needed.  We couldn’t be happier with how the station sounds since turning on AudioVAULT 11, and the support has been great.”

AudioVAULT 11 delivers new capabilities across the entire platform, and introduces breakthrough workflows in several key areas:

  • The all-new advanced AudioVAULT Scheduler allows complex program and content distribution tasks to be managed seamlessly intuitively and straightforwardly.
  • AudioVAULT Anywhere delivers powerful control and simplified operations at your fingertips all from any connected device wherever and whenever you need it. Ideally suited for remote voice tracking, playlist and program management, file playback, remote broadcast, sports, and remote talent.
  • CloudVAULT enables cloud-based shared and redundant content storage to deliver greater efficiency and disaster recovery using a reliable, scalable, and secure Microsoft® Azure platform.  Leverage content on a shared offsite platform across your cluster, group, or around the globe using proven and reliable Azure solutions.
  • Seamless integration with Adobe® Audition digital audio editing software. Streamline production with powerful new metadata tools to simply load audio into AudioVAULT directly from Audition eliminating tedious data entry.
  • Enhanced AVWatchDog provides an extra set of eyes and ears to monitor and track a full range of schedules and playlists days in advance to ensure everything is in place, and should something be missing, it will proactively notify you so you can take corrective action.
