On-air phone interface
Anywhere: Listeners already stream a station through their computers via the Internet. Anywhere makes it possible for them to contribute live through their computers. By using the Anywhere portal on a website, one click connects a listener to the studio, and allows them to speak and share video using a webcam, chat with the studio using instant messaging, register opinions for a track and agree or disagree with a discussion. A simple registration process captures all the listener information needed in the studio to pre-screen contributions and even provide a photo, and using instant messaging, the studio call screener can continue to assess suitability to progress the call to air.
