Social radio network
4Ever Centric Media
Pantheon: Los Angeles-based social media developers Gamecentric Media and Chicago-based media company Njs4ever Networks have entered into a joint venture to launch a social media application suite for radio broadcasters. Dubbed 4EverCentric Media, this joint venture will produce Pantheon, a social radio network that merges traditional radio properties with customizeable and extensive social networking applications to foster engaging, interactive and user-friendly brand experiences between radio listeners and stations. End users can embed their favorite radio stations on a multitude of social networking platforms, focusing on Facebook and My Space. The technology itself allows for highly interactive applications, enabling fans to communicate with each other, rate songs, highlight sponsors and view additional information as determined by the stations while driving traffic to pre-designated online destinations.
Performance reporting tool
Royalty Reporting: Abacast's Performance Reporting Tool will generate reports that meet and exceed the Sound Exchange guidelines for the Copyright Royalty Board with almost no additional work for the broadcaster. The report data is ready in real-time so there is no need to wait for the results. Alerts can also be sent to the broadcaster based on certain thresholds to keep the broadcaster informed of any audience changes. The Performance Reporting Tool can be used with any radio automation system, music selection scheduling system files, and/or manual entry of now playing data to produces consistent results. The reporting is all done automatically. The reporting tool can be used by any webcaster or broadcaster regardless of the Content Delivery Network (CDN) they use. The reports are only made available to the webcasters or broadcasters for their own uses.
Transfusor Model C: The Transfusor Model C is a diffuser that passes light and can be used as a cover for a standard 2' x 2' light fixture, grid mounted, placed in front of windows or skylights, or mounted directly to a surface reducing both acoustical and visual glare. It is a patented series of binary array diffusers used to increase the clarity of sound while maintaining the ambient character of the room. The range is extended over other designs by its unique angled end caps to further control acoustic reflections above 4kHz. It is available in a variety of different materials including furniture grade woods and Class A plastics. Easy to install, these sound diffusers can be direct mounted to walls and ceilings, covered with fabric stretch wall systems or dropped directly into standard T-bar grids.

VIA Echo: The Echo is a hand-held vector impedance analyzer (vector network analyzer), spectrum analyzer, power meter, and frequency domain reflectometer (FDR) in one instrument. Models come in frequency ranges of 4MHz to 1.0GHz or 4MHz to 2.5GHz. The VIA Echo network analyzer was designed for performing antenna testing and tuning, transmission line testing and fault locating, cellular site turn-up testing and troubleshooting. It can be used for individual component testing, system or network testing. The VIA Echo's all come with two ports S11 and S21 to perform both reflective and loss/gain measurements.
