Switch to Windows 10 and control automatic updates

2017-11-22T10:21:22+00:00 October 12, 2017|News|

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.

Radio Metro from Norway switches to Caliope software

2017-11-22T10:21:22+00:00 June 27, 2017|News|

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.
