Internet radio station has become one of the most popular aspects of technology. Consumers no longer have to listen to the radio in their cars that has one thousand minutes of commercial playtime. Why waste their time on such non-sense when they can download an app on their phone within 10 seconds and listen to any genre of Internet radio most likely commercial free. Internet broadcasting is the new fad or should I say the new way of life!
Suppose you chose not to be the everyday consumer and want to host and broadcast your own radio station? There’s nothing holding you back other than you. Stream Monster has created an easy to use broadcaster equipment to aid in this new journey. This special piece of equipment is called Voice Stream Broadcaster.
Unlike many other broadcasters out there, Voice Stream Broadcaster doesn’t require any configuration. The user is only required to plug in the equipment and start broadcasting live. The zero-configuration mode is supported by streammonster.com and it allows the built-in interface to automatically configure the device for you (you will need to register at www.streammonster.com). The device has several features such as IceCast and ShoutCast support, auto-configure, full stereo, remote control/access, and much more.
For those of you that are new to the world of live audio broadcasting, IceCast is a streaming media server that can be used to create an Internet radio station that allows for versatility of multiple formats. ShoutCast is simply a website that hosts or gives access to thousands of live radio stations online. Do not confuse this program to be only for the creation of live Internet broadcasts…it is also for consumers who simply wans to broadcast live audio online (whatever your topic of choice may be).
Internet radio can be a little tricky if you do not know what you’re doing, but thanks to the creators of Voice Stream Broadcaster it is quite simple.
