RCS to power SCA stations nationally under new deal
Southern Cross Austereo will employ Zetta and GSelector on a company-wide basis under a new deal with RCS announced on Tuesday.
Zetta, the advanced playout system along with GSelector, the patented music scheduling platform, will integrate into SCA’s Australia wide network of metropolitan and regional studios delivering networked and locally created entertainment to millions of listeners.
SCA’s Sea FM and 2GO FM on the Central Coast were the first stations to make the switch to the new RCS software. SCA’s two Brisbane stations, Hit105 and Triple M Brisbane and Hit103.5 and Triple M 99.5 Cairns quickly followed suit.
Steve Adler, national radio engineering manager at SCA said Zetta and GSelector would revolutionise its radio operations. “The switch to RCS is an important part of SCA’s future growth,” he said.
Keith Williams, RCS VP of Asia Pacific noted that long-standing relationship between RCS and Australia’s biggest radio group.
We have learned a great deal about radio together over 30 years and I am honoured that RCS will now play such an integral role with our technology as SCA expands the enterprise over the next decade and beyond,” he said.
Philippe Generali, president and CEO of RCS added, “Southern Cross Austereo selecting RCS as their vendor of choice for both play out and scheduling is an exciting venture for both companies. SCA will become the largest cluster of terrestrial and streaming stations using the hand-in-glove integration Zetta & GSelector provides.”
