Tulix Systems, Inc. EVP Dr. Nino Doijashvili emphasized that the recently announced UniStream is not exclusive to television channels that deliver their programming to their viewership via satellite delivery or through the Internet. Nino explained,“While UniStream is showing its appeal to television broadcasters, on-line radio stations are seeing the benefit of reaching their audience when they are not in front of their computer screen.”
Doijashvili elaborated,“The true power of terrestrial radio has been, and continues to be, its portability. Radio comes with you. As you drive to work, take your family on outing or sit in your back yard with friends, radio is there to be the soundtrack of your life.” She continued,“Now these Internet based radio stations can also compete with terrestrial and satellite stations through mobile devices like the iPad, iPhone, Android or other portable screens and be where their audience is. Our UniStream platform can encode their content and stream it to all of these devices and more. We can even help create the apps that their listeners can download to their devices for quick and easy access to their favorite stations.”
The UniStream Platform benefits for Radio and Television Stations include:
• Simultaneous streaming to Flash (RTMP), iOS (HTTP), Windows Silverlight, Blackberry/Android (RTSP), Windows Media Streaming (MMS), Roku (TV stations and Radio stations), IPTV set-tops and others;
• Significant cost savings by eliminating infrastructures and the burden of the multi-format file storage;
• Improved listener experience with adaptive multi-bitrate streaming for Flash, iOS and Silverlight without the need for device specification;
• No bit rate limitation. Radio Broadcasters can stream up to CD quality;
The Tulix UniStream Platform offers the following key components that are vital to on-line Radio programming:
• Live / On-Demand Encoding;
• Multi-Screen streaming making your radio station portable for your listeners;
• Flexible Bandwidth Transfer;
• Set up Support by the Tulix Team;
• Player Protection to Secure Your Content;
• Detailed Analytics.
Doijashvili went on to say that the Tulix Systems is excited to work with this group of innovative radio programmers. Some much so that Tulix is now actively developing a proprietary player for on-line radio stations that will emphasize the artists that the station showcases and will not be as commercial in its presentation of banners and commercials. “We are always looking at new ways to help our partner’s better serve their audience. In many cases, they present niche and specialty programming and are serving interests and communities that standard commercial radio might find too small. The Internet is a powerful tool for people with a message to find a voice and an audience. Our Unistream platform and our soon to be released Player will help those innovators reach a larger audience.”
