StreamGuys Launches New SaaS Platform

News Image
StreamGuys has launched a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform to accelerate the turnaround of online side channels for radio broadcasters.

Broadcasters and content producers can quickly create and publish any number of side channels from existing broadcast streams, including linear radio channels, of any length. In addition to the limitless custom stream possibilities, users are freed from the expensive hardware and intricate technology workflows previously required to achieve the same tasks.

While the concept of creating Podcasts and on-demand content for download is not new, SGrecast is innovative because of how it simplifies and enhances the process. Leveraging StreamGuys’ years of Podcasting expertise, including several Top 10 Podcasts as rated by iTunes, SGrecast integrates all the tools and features necessary for multi-user, multi-publisher podcasting into a web-based SaaS platform that can be activated anywhere.

Since SGrecast is multi-seat software, many users can work simultaneously, making SGrecast ideal for single stations up to the largest broadcast networks. Customers are given a login and password to access SGrecast from any networked location, and can immediately record and schedule content to expedite the creation and playout of side channels. Larger networks have no limit to the number of simultaneous users, and networks can establish users and content in groups to simplify overall management.

While SGrecast is perfect for Podcasts on-demand side channels, its flexibility supports creation and delivery of new linear streams as well. SGrecast’s compatibility with Icecast servers allows broadcasters to efficiently syndicate linear streams and reach larger audiences. Audience reach is also amplified through automatic content transcoding ensures support for multiple formats, which enables reliable playout across all leading desktops, laptops, mobile devices and OTT players. In addition, SGrecast seamlessly integrates with RSS streams, ensuring a clean handoff to popular third-party Podcast and streaming services such as Feedburner, Stitcher and TuneIn.
