The concept is sound.
An internet-based audio delivery service is a simple, affordable way to deliver timely and targeted high quality audio directly to smartphones and other mobile devices, laptops and PCs.

Merely scanning the QR tag or clicking your unique link at your website instantly launches the program at your direction and convenience. Or, use an easy-to-remember webpage URL at for easy and quick recognition.

The service is available in two styles: SpotCASTs and StreamCASTs.
  1. SpotCASTs are audio productions in file form. They always begin at the beginning, rather than looping, 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.
  2. StreamCASTs allow you to link your audience to a continuous program to 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.

(*) Unlimited connections are allowed, so no one is ever denied access to the stream even during major events or emergencies.
