Selecting the right hardware for your Internet streaming station is important. It may seem complex at first, but it comes down to what you want to do on your Internet Radio station. This page will help you find what you need.
So, what do you want your station do?
Do you want to have your station run 24 x 7, but not have to be manually operating it the entire time?
You will need an automation system. The most common automation software would be the New~Wave automation system. It allows you to create weekly schedules, and voice tracks, but also assists you when you are performing your live shows. We also offer other automation that may better meet your needs, such as the Digilink-Xtreme or Digilink-HD. Check out our automation page to learn more.
You will need a console such as the ARC-8. This board will connect to a phone hybrid that then connects to your phone line. This allows you to take callers. If you have an ARC-10 or higher console, then you can take these callers off-air and record for later playback. Learn more.
You will need a console such as the ARC-8. The ARC-8 has 2 mic channels. If you want more microphone inputs, then you may want to consider the ARC-15 which has up to 5 mic channels. Learn more.
Both the ARC-10 series and the ARC-15 consoles have the ability to connect to Bluetooth devices. This allows you to connect to your cell phone (replacing the need for a phone hybrid) or any Bluetooth enabled MP3 player. This is a versatile solution that adds flexibility and power to your Internet radio station. Learn more.
