24/7 Radio with the automation Challenge

No matter what time you turn your radio on – there always is a show, music, or an interesting broadcast to listen to. Radio automation works wonders 24/7, but what is the secret?

For radio stations, as for many media industries, the challenge is often to combine diverging interests: grow and keep an audience with appealing programs running 24/7, hence maximizing revenues thanks to advertising – altogether with monitoring operating costs – i.e. optimizing the human presence behind the mic. Automating part of the broadcasting operations might save the day, but how to keep it secure, safe, and with high performance? 

Automating the streaming of critical revenue-generating advertisements while achieving a secure and safe audio signal transmission delivery provides an undeniably competitive advantage to the radio station in terms of efficiency and high performance. 

Digigram sound cards feature just the appropriate embedded functionalities to reliably stream automated radio ads, jingles, and similar signals for easy mixing and high quality transmission. Also, embedded time scaling easily enables production teams to tailor specific audio streams to transmission time requirements without sound distortion. Yes, this is fully tech but highly efficient.
