Radio has been a mainstay of entertainment culture since its inception. The internet age has quickly brought new meaning and opportunities to radio, as niche and more focused programming is possible. Talk shows, music, education and other topics directed toward specific interests, rather than just the mainstream, have been possible for years. Within this model, how does one improve and continue to provide content to listeners in an inexpensive, feature filled and secure environment with functionality such as live broadcasting?
The DaCast integrated, live video streaming service allows content owners to stream live radio shows or previously recorded audio to listeners easily and effectively. The platform also provides powerful features and is equipped with built-in ad and pay per view monetization. No complicated set up and provisioning process required. DaCast provides a complete, integrated system with everything you need to get started and none of the complexity found in similar systems.
The DaCast audio streaming solution offers everything you need in one integrated platform, including live content distribution and previously recorded VOD streaming. You can start broadcasting to your audiences within 20 minutes, delivering music only or music video content.
No need to go through complex processes to set up separate payment accounts or sign multiple deals with major suppliers. All streaming management and payment systems have been integrated to seamlessly and securely stream content. Pay-as-you-go pricing and self-service set up is a low risk investment that requires no upfront fees.
The DaCast solution is also flexible for audio broadcasting needs, providing additional features such as a customizable player skin. Watermarking, to produce a stable video image to accompany the audio, is also possible. The entire platform is also offered as a white label service, allowing radio stations to build their own identity.
Through DaCast’s streaming system, users can broadcast radio channels to any audience local or worldwide. If you want to generate revenue with great premium content, DaCast offers you a choice of monetization models. You can charge on a pay-per-view or subscription basis or allow viewers to listen to your content for free. In addition, DaCast offers the tools to build listener demographics from a powerful analytics dashboard that also lets you monitor your audience’s usage so you can refine your programming and identify your most popular content.
