DAD (Digital Audio Delivery) Demo

This stream is originated on an ENCO DAD instance hosted in the StreamGuys cloud. DAD supplies all the in-stream metadata, including mid-roll ad replacement and song info (album, artists, title). The mid-roll ads are dynamically inserted server-side by AdsWizz Audioserve, which is also hosted in the StreamGuys cloud. SGplayer displays information that the listener cares about – artist, song, album art and previously played.

If this was a terrestrial radio station, AdsWizz could be used to simulcast ads to listeners in the same market and replace ads for out-of-market listeners.

MOM (Media Operations Manager) Demo

The above stream is being scheduled ENCO’s MOM hardware. MOM is handling all the audio and video scheduling and mid-roll ad insertion triggers. The mid-roll ads are dynamically inserted server-side by AdsWizz Audioserve hosted in the StreamGuys cloud. SGplayer is delivering the HLS video stream to mobile and desktop devices.
