Introducing CloudStream

Outcast Digital introduces a new consolidated audio streaming platform, powerful enough for traditional radio broadcasters but priced so that even low-power or internet-only stations can afford it.

Instead of offering separate streaming products for different types of broadcasters, we have now unified everything into a single platform we’re calling CloudStream.

This means everyone now gets access to the full Outcast streaming statistics system with it’s Arbitron-style broadcaster stats and graphs, the real-time live console, and the resilience of cloud-based streaming servers in three countries. Of course all the standard Outcast features are there too, meaning your stream will work on nearly every device out there on the market. (if you find one which doesn’t work, let us know!)

With low starting package prices, monthly contracts, and payment via PayPal, this service should appeal to all types of broadcaster… in fact we’re even offering a free no-obligation trial!

Check out more info about this service on our CloudStream product page.

Outcast Stats system goes live!

Today we have activated the first release of our brand new streaming statistics package.

While most other log analyser systems are really built for web servers, the new Outcast Digital system has been totally designed and built in-house to deliver the type of statistics that broadcasters need to compare against traditional radio surveys, such as Average Quarter-Hour (AQH), and Time Spent Listening (TSL). Not only that, but it can also tell you exactly where your listeners are connecting from, down to a specific city.

The new stats package is immediately available for all Outcast customers, and everyone else can check out a demo right here.

But we’re not done yet! Features coming soon include full royalty reporting and even more graphs and stats. If you can think of a stat that you’d like to see, let us know!
