RTL Today Radio goes live with BCE’s StudioTalk

For RTL Today Radio, the new web radio in English, Luxembourg’s leading media, RTL Luxembourg, selected BCE’s StudioTalk to produce and broadcast its visual radio.

RTL Today Radio is the heartbeat of Luxembourg, bringing together news, local events, insights into life in the Grandest Duchy of them all, traffic, weather, sports, chat, games, and much more. Much like the website (https://today.rtl.lu), the radio is fun, friendly, interactive, and always a part of the community available to everyone and anyone.

StudioTalk is an all-in-one solution to produce shows, manage content, add special effects, control sets and broadcast programs on any existing platform. The solution comes with automated or manual video production, channel branding as well as advanced monitoring features.

RTL Luxembourg was looking for a visual radio solution which could integrate the full branding of their new media, synchronize with their radio automation and broadcast on their website while being fully automated.

In less than three months, Broadcasting Center Europe (BCE) installed the solution in RTL Today Radio studio, including the cabling, infrastructure, and platform configuration. Working with StudioTalk’s fully automated feature, the team can focus on content and shows, while leaving the production and broadcast to the solution.

“StudioTalk is constantly evolving, allowing the radio world to enrich its programs and create new experience for the viewers. The radios can continue to deliver their audio programs and at the same time produce high quality live video programs.” Explains Olivier Waty, Technology & Project Director at BCE. “We are glad to take part in the launch of RTL Today Radio, the English-speaking media of Luxembourg.”

Geared up with four PTZ (Pan–Tilt–Zoom) cameras and multiple screens, StudioTalk is perfectly synchronized with the radio automation to broadcast the music and News with the content on the visual radio screens (in the studio and on the website). StudioTalk also triggers the different live shows, manages the camera production, with the intelligent identification of the speakers, and automatically add the graphic titles with the data encoded in the system.

“StudioTalk is an amazing solution, it completely transformed our way of working. The solution takes care of everything, we can concentrate on our content and live shows. From a simple touchscreen interface, we can manage the full solution, add graphics, titles and even take the control over the system, in case of special guests or breaking News!” Concludes Gerard Floener, Head of Digital Development Radio & Deputy Head of Radio Programmes at RTL Luxembourg.
