streaming services

Post by am1430 » Thu Mar 24, 2011 6:23 am

Hello people!

My wife and I are exploring streaming services for the station...I have worked with Warp so that is really the only one Im familiar with. What are you using for your stations...likes? dislikes? Do you have special processing for the stream? thanks!!

I've used Liquid Compass in the past and have been happy with them.

Ditto on LC. we use the orban pc card for audio input and processing. kinda pricey but does good job.

abacast is way cheaper from LC that I hear. I hear LC is not cheap and also a pain to get up and running. I watched the pain it was setup here years ago.

We use Stereo Tool to do 'additional' processing for the stream (Low-pass and level adjustment as our AES input card does not allow for gain and the output of our broadcast processor goes elsewhere where a below 0dBFS level is useful).

How large an internet pipe can you get dropped into the studio? Our local phone co ran a fiber connection for me, I have 4 stations streaming over it in-house. Trade deal, no cash outlay except for the server.
I use a raw program feed into a Valley processor for some compression and light limiting on each stream, that seems enough.
