Smarts Broadcast Systems Skylla
This multistation, Linux-based automation system has been under development for several years. Smarts has been migrating into Linux for a number of years. Servers running in Linux have recorded uptimes of more than a year without a reset. Skylla is suited for live, satellite automated and music on hard drive automated operations, and interfaces to the Smarts Secgen Traffic System, the Digital Program Director Music selection system and many other popular music and traffic programs. Skylla is designed around a central processor unit that runs one station and auxiliary audio heads that handle the audio stream for additional stations. One unit can handle many different audio streams. Switching operations can be centralized or can be handled by the individual audio heads in the system. Skylla can be operated or monitored via the Internet.
