Gerd Schwager, Head of Department, Program Distribution and Development Department
“For the procurement of new audio streaming encoders, SWR has chosen aixtream encoders from Ferncast since they are an optimal fit for our requirements.”
Fritz Behringer, Production Engineer of the CBC
“You can create as many overviews as you like in the Dashboard and with these tracks all the various connection, system and network statuses as well as signal levels. For a live transmission with multiple programs, communications and IFB signals this is vital for success. If a signal still has not arrived -or arrived in the wrong place- you can just listen to the signal in the web user interface – that’s great!”
Udo Botzenhardt, Head of Content and Club Media
“Until now we had to use various pieces of equipment for our requirements. Thanks to Ferncast and the fernReport we can now integrate experts and our fans into the program using a small and simple-to-use device and so enhance our live reporting on 05ER.fm”
Alexander Leschinsky, Managing Director
“We see a great potential with the aixtream streaming solution from Ferncast as we are able to offer to our customers a stable and service-oriented system in the long term. With Ferncast we have found a highly qualified partner in the field of audio encoding.”
