How does the radio station broadcast?
Pre-record then share your radio shows
On Air, the playout software included with all radio packages has been specifically designed to make recording simple.
At the touch of a button the 'Quick Record' feature enables you to record an entire show or just short clips of audio, such as an interview.
The recorded files can be placed into On Air's playlist for broadcast or exported as an mp3. Mp3 files can be shared on a local network or uploaded to a free podcast service such as www.mixcloud.com
Our radio packages design enable mp3 files to be broadcast unattended. Pre-recorded files can be scheduled to play once, daily, weekly, monthly or every set number of days.
The above can be achieved without disruption to the On Air software. This means that pre-recorded shows can be streamed via a network while pupils use On Air to prepare and record future audio.
Stream within your network or to the web
Streaming is a great way to broadcast your radio station and all of our radio packages include an integrated streaming solution.
Simply connect the radio stations PC to your network using an ethernet cable, give the PC a static IP address and the streaming software will do the rest.
Computers and mobile devices on the same network will be able to connect to your local stream using a web-browser or music application such as iTunes or Windows Media player.

Connect to a PA or speaker system
One of the most popular and practical ways to broadcast a radio show at break and lunchtimes is to connect your radio station to speakers.
Speakers can be located in corridors, atriums, classrooms, canteen areas and also outside spaces.
