APEX Failsafe

APEX Failsafe is setup to run in parallel with your APEX automation, ready to take over in an emergency to keep your station on air and serving your community.

 

Typically ran at a remote location, such as your transmitter site, APEX Failsafe is the perfect backup for any scenario. Utilizing silence sense technology, it will detect if any problems occur with your main studio feed.

 

For example, a storm cuts your connection from the main studio to your transmitter site. With APEX Failsafe running on a PC at the transmitter site, it will detect the silence and quickly put you back on air with your scheduled backup program.

 

The same benefits apply for if you are doing an internet stream, and want a backup stream.

APEX Failsafe grants peace of mind, knowing that you will be protected for what life throws at you. Such as critical failures at your main studio, caused by:

  • Virus or ransomware.
  • Computer failures, such as hard drive, motherboard, damaged hardware or OS crashes.
  • Theft or vandalism.
  • Employee sabotage.
  • Natural Disasters, such as floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, or lightning strikes.

Setup.

For setup, simply connect the main feed from your studio to both the APEX Failsafe PC, and transmitter. We will help you with every step of this process, and if needed, can provide audio cabling, as well as a pre-configured PC for an additional charge.

 

If you have a VPN between locations, your APEX Failsafe software may be pathed to your main studio APEX, and mirror your regular schedule. So long as the audio files are stored at both locations, the APEX Failsafe software is capable of playing the backup feed, as it was meant to be.

There are so many different life situations that can take your station down, making regular scheduled backups essential.
