Ever wonder where radio broadcasters learn their trade? The Radio Station: Broadcasting, Streaming, and Podcasting textbook by Bruce Mims and John Allen Hendricks is a valuable resource for budding broadcasters, and we're proud to be a part of it. Our own Marty Sacks and Geoff Steadman offer their advice, along with many other industry experts.
We sit down with Brian Cunningham, chief engineer of Crawford's Rochester and Buffalo markets, to learn about how Omnia has defined Crawford's sound since the beginning.
When it comes to winning on the air and via streaming, your broadcast audio processor needs to do one thing, and do it really, really well: Make your station sound incredible. It doesn't matter how many bells and whistles your audio processor has, in the end, your listeners don't care about anything but the quality of your content. That means more than simply creating compelling programming. It is about allowing that content to sounds its absolute best. Crisper, clearer, cleaner, and louder, with less distortion and listener fatigue. So how do you accomplish that? With Omnia, of course.Read More
“Some broadcasters aren’t paying enough attention to their streams,” says David Bialik, Director of Stream Operations for Entercom. “Broadcasters want to make a product advertisers want to sponsor, so delivering a quality product with quality audio is a must. We want to make sure the listener does not want to change the stream, or even adjust the volume for that matter.”
How to achieve this? David, who’s something of a streaming audio authority, having worked on a variety of streaming projects over the years, suggests the Telos Z/IPStream R/2.Read More
Telos Alliance invented AoIP for broadcast in 2003 when we introduced Livewire, which has since become the foundation for our Axia brand, and today, broadcasters across the globe use Axia products, powered by Livewire, in thousands of AoIP studios worldwide.
Broadcasters are now beginning to understand the benefit of the AES67 interoperability standard (based largely on our Livewire protocol), which is to help them proceed confidently into the future of broadcast using AoIP as a backbone. With AoIP infrastructure and AES67, equipment from multiple manufacturers is interoperable. Clearly, now is the time to engage AoIP at all levels of your broadcast workflow.Read More
When it comes to getting listeners to tune in all day long, great sound is what matters most. But with technology moving at breakneck speed, hardware can become outdated quickly, with many manufacturers requiring you to purchase a whole new processor once technology is improved, quickly rendering their own products obsolete. Omnia engineers are always looking for ways to supercharge their processors with improvements and features that benefit all users. Instead of making customers buy a whole new processor, Omnia offers free and low-cost software upgrades, actually making customers’ machines better over time, paying dividends on customers’ investment in Omnia processors.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB), streaming audio revenue has grown by more than 1,000% over the last decade. With the popularity of smart speakers and similar devices, the expectation is for streaming revenue to continue to climb, opening up a great opportunity for broadcasters.Read More
