Encoding software is installed on a computer where the radio show is being broadcast from. This compresses the signal and sends it to an internet radio server with plenty of bandwidth (like ours).
The internet radio server recieves the stream from the broadcasting software and relays it to the listeners player. The radio server requires large amounts of bandwidth to cater for all the connecting listeners. We can provide these.
The Internet radio player connects to the server to recieve the radio stream. This could be a standalone player like VLC, Winamp, iTunes, Windows Media Player etc... OR a flash player embeded in your web site.
Our Pay As You Go servers have no monthly fee. You buy bandwidth which is used by your listeners. Your bandwidth rolls over between months. Read more...
Our Small, Medium and Large radio packages all have unlimited bandwidth. These packages are great for stations who broadcast 24/7.
We can also provide custom packages with varying bitrates, listener slots and auto dj storage. If your station doesn't fit into any of the above then please contact us to discuss your requirements.
