Abacast Radio Streaming Platform
Online radio streaming
Abacast's Radio Streaming Platform allows stations and station groups to capitalize on online radio streaming with the Content Delivery Network that delivers Flash, Windows Media, Silverlight, MP3, AAC and more, to customizable Media Players with features like ad integration and social networking. Offer inserted in-stream audio ads with synched banners, rotating banners, and pre-roll video. Sophisticated Player keeps audiences engaged. Real time, radio-specific analytics enable publishers and advertisers to measure quality of experience and maximize monetization. Audience growth has traditionally translated directly into streaming cost growth, but Abacast wants broadcasters to stop worrying. The company offers fixed-rate plans for the following listener hour volumes per month: 25,000, 50,000, 100,000, 200,000, 400,000 and over 400,000. Users can exceed package listener hours by up to 50 percent for 2 consecutive months with no caps or overage charges. Then choose to limit costs and cap the stream at that level or to continue focusing on audience growth and automatically be placed in the next higher listener hour tier level the following month with no overage charges (there are some restrictions related to fast, viral growth of stream volumes).
