Do you want to use Windows 10 on your broadcast PC but are you still using Windows 7 because of the automatic updates in Windows 10?
Windows 10 cannot be used on a broadcast PC because of its automatic updates. Automatic updates will get you a safe PC, that’s true, but it is not very nice that in the middle of the night your broadcast PC suddenly updates and restarts itself.
Because of this, many broadcast PC’s are still running Windows 7.
However in Windows 10, version 1703 Pro and Enterprise, it is much easier to control the automatic updates.
Check out this article:
Radio Metro from Oslo, Norway has ordered OnAir Radio as their radio automation software and OnAir Spots for their commercial planning software. OnAir Radio and On Air Spots will be used for all of their 3 radio stations (Radio Metro, Radio Rox and The Beat). Radio Metro is broadcasting different commercials to 8 regions, where The Rox is broadcasting to 4 different regions.
The very efficient way in which Caliope’s software handles the broadcasting of commercials to 12 different regions was an important reason to make the switch. Today, many hours are now being spend on manually filling up gaps in the regions, in checking the playlists for correct endings and in manually copying commercials to the different regionalized players. All these manually steps are now replaced by an completely automated process, saving many hours a day.
On top of that, Radio Metro will also save on their infrastructure, going down from 20 servers to only 5. This not only saves investments in hardware, but also in the maintenance of the hardware.
We are very proud to welcome a new customer from Germany: Radio Osnabrueck.
Radio Osnabrueck has ordered OnAir Radio as their radio automation software, OnAir Spots as their commercial scheduler and OnAir Web X to do remote voicetracking. Soon we will finish the implementation of the Ember+ protocol, so Radio Osnabrueck will be able to attach their DHD 52 console to OnAir Radio.
FM Tadka orders OnAir radio
Caliope is very pleased to announce that FM Tadka , a division of the Rajasthan Patrika group, a leading Hindi publisher from Jaipur, India, has ordered OnAir Radio as their radio automation software for all their 18 radio stations all across India. The main reason for Rajasthan Patrika to order OnAir Radio is that the software from Caliope fulfilled all the requirements for managing centralized FM radio.
Operating multiple stations from 1 central location with OnAir Radio
FM Tadka wanted to operate all their 18 stations from their headquarters in Jaipur. Because OnAir Radio is fully equipped for operating multiple stations from one central location, FM Tadka decided to order Caliope’s OnAir Radio. The 18 different playlists for all their 18 stations are made in Jaipur from one planner and one library. As soon as the playlist are made in Jaipur, all 18 stations will automatically load their own playlists. Any changes in a playlist will be automatically be synchronized to with the remote player. Commercials for all 18 stations are also planned in Jaipur and will also be automatically synchronized with the remote player of OnAir Radio.
