The service is available in two styles:
SpotCasts and StreamCasts.
SpotCasts are audio productions
in file form. They always begin at the
beginning, which is important for programs
where the order of presentation is critical. We
can produce and keep SpotCasts current, or you
can do it yourself.
StreamCasts allow you to link
your audience to a continuous program
that it can tap into, such as the broadcast
program of an information radio station or the
play-by-play of a live event. We provide a
network audio interface that allows you to make
the connection to the Internet. Our monthly service
currently supports 100 simultaneous streams and
expands automatically, if required, due to a
sudden emergency or a special event.*
Both styles may be full production, including
music, and may be sponsored, making the service
revenue-neutral – or even profitable – for
you, the operator.
connections are allowed, so no one is ever
denied access to the stream even during major
events or emergencies. If the number of
simultaneous users exceeds 100 - which would
typically only occur in a major crisis - monthly
usage charges might apply.
Usage charges: $100 if simultaneous users
exceed 100, $200 if they exceed 200, etc.
