Customer Reviews

"...Information Station Specialists (The Radio Source) team [has] been exceptional in providing backup streaming replacing the normal KLEP Web stream after failures in power for our building, including our generator backup power after the extreme windstorm-driven wildfire catastrophe that burned about a third of the City.... The night before, while the wildfire was increasing in strength ..., I called the ISS After Hours Emergency Support Number and received a return call promptly.... My expectations have certainly been met. Thank you."

An internet-based audio delivery service is a simple, accessible and affordable way to deliver timely, targeted audio directly to smartphones, PCs and any other connected device. All our streaming services support an unlimited number of simultaneous streams and no one is ever denied a connection during a sudden emergency or a special event. SSL Encryption is also an option.

StreamCASTs allow you to link your audience to a continuously repeating streamed program, such as the broadcast program of an information radio station or the play-by-play of a live event. We provide the network audio interface hardware that allows you to make the physical connection to the Internet.

StreamCASTs are generally accessed from a webpage where you present viewers a link to click. Of course you can also email or text that link directly to potential listeners in an emergency or anytime there is an update.

StreamCASTs may be full production, including music, and may be sponsored, making the service revenue-neutral – or even profitable – for you, the operator.

Alexa Advisories  .  .  .    

With this option, the general public can listen to your StreamCASTs via Amazon’s Alexa attendant from any enabled smartspeaker device. This provides a new way to speak to listeners in the privacy and convenience of their homes, office and even connected vehicles.

Try this example:*

“Alexa, open current information for Radio Cupertino.”

(*) To activate the demos, say, "Alexa, enable 'Current Information'."
"HearMoreInfo" Web Address for Signs . . .

If you will be using signage to tell people how to access your audio, an easy web address is key. We can provide you with one connected to your own StreamCAST link, so your audience will be able to key it into their portable devices.
