The main goal and driver behind the RadioMan® Clipper was to deliver on the promise of a “single audio toolset platform for all journalists” for audio production and management. Clipper has been created to provide a unified platform for audio production so that journalists don’t need separate tools for recording, mobile audio editing, metadata generation, audio transfer, remote media asset management, and multitrack audio editing. A single platform helps the broadcaster in production environment management, user management, updates, and data security.
One of the big challenges in the project was to create a consistent user experience independent of the platform: the internal logic of the software should be recognizable when using the application on both mobile and computers. A unique starting point for the design work was created by the fact that a mouse and keyboard interface was built based on the existing mobile user interface. This allowed the designer to expand things more freely, in comparison to adapting a computer-designed user experience by condensing it for mobile devices
As a consultant the biggest challenge with the project was grasping the subject matter: you’re creating a specialized tool for professionals. It was vital to have an open connection and co-operation with the client’s representatives, which helped to understand the concepts and terms behind the specialty field. Our experts ability to grasp and take hold of new and vast domains also helped.
