Start Your Online Radio Station

  • Broadcast Live Radio
  • Radio Mobile App Development
  • Easy Setup & Fully Managed Solution

The following plans below are designed specifically for high quality radio station streaming on the web.  Each plan comes ready to stream online radio station via the CentovaCast/Shoutcast control panel which is a ready to go solution enabling you to setup and manage your streams, radio stations, view statistics and much more.

  • Common options are included in the first few tabs. Advanced options are available in additional tabs.

    In addition to providing total control over your streaming server, Centova Cast also provides comprehensive autoDJ system. Never again will your clients need to rely on their own PC to broadcast their stream! When enabled, clients may upload their media (MP3s, etc.) directly to the server via FTP, manage their media through Centova Cast's comprehensive AJAX Media Library system (described in the following slide), and schedule their media using Centova Cast's advanced playlist scheduling system (also described on an upcoming slide). This provides a complete, all-in-one solution for setting up an Internet radio station.

    Centova Cast's AJAX media library brings a familiar, desktop-style media management interface to the web.

    Common options are included in the first few tabs. Advanced options are available in additional tabs.

    Centova Cast supports multiple playlists for each stream. Each playlist can be configured individually to control precisely how and when it will be played -- at a specific time, on a repeating schedule, or on a rotation schedule with support for ranking by popularity (known as "weighting").

    Four types of playlists are available, as described on the next four slides. Through a combination of the playlist types offered by Centova Cast, you can achieve total control over your media scheduling, and completely eliminate the need for expensive third-party source software to schedule your tracks.

    General rotation playlists handle the bulk of the media played on your stream.

    By creating multiple general rotation playlists with different "weights", you can ensure that popular tracks (such as new releases) are always played more often than your less popular tracks.

    Centova Cast includes a built-in monitoring system to minimize downtime in streaming server accounts. Should a ShoutCast® or IceCast server crash or unexpectedly go offline for any reason, Centova Cast will automatically restart the server within a matter of seconds, and can notify the administrator and client of the outage.

    Centova Cast provides the most comprehensive streaming radio statistics system commercially available today. It provides information about listener trends and demographics, data transfer, track performances and popularity, user agents, and much, much more.

    These items are discussed in detail on the following slides.

    The recent activity report provides a high-level overview of your stream statistics, including details of listener trends, average session times, total listening hours, data transfer, track playback, and more.

    Listener activity for the past 48 hours is also plotted for easy reference.

    The listener overview provides information about listeners' usage of your station.

    Average session length is charted and graphed, and top listeners are ranked according to listener minutes and number of sessions. Listener countries are automatically determined, and the software used by the listener to tune into the stream is noted and identified as a media player or stream ripper to assist in abuse detection.

    The country overview provides information about the countries from which the majority of your listeners are tuning in.

    Top listener countries are charted and graphed according to listener minutes and number of sessions.

    The user agents report provides an overview of the software programs your listeners are using to tune in to your stream.

    Top user agents are charted and graphed according to listener minutes and number of sessions. Each user agent is also classified as a legitimate media player (such as WinAmp, iTunes, etc.), or a stream ripper (a program used to steal music from your stream) to assist in abuse detection.

    The tracks report provides information about the frequency and popularity of the tracks played on your stream.

    Track popularity is determined based on the number of tune-ins/tune-outs during a particular song over the past 30 days, and this is used to compile a "least popular" and "most popular" tracks list. This provides an excellent indicator of your listeners' tastes for particular songs.

    Centova Cast provides detailed daily and monthly data transfer and listener statistics, complete with graphs, allowing both the client and the administrator to track listener trends and resource usage.

    Individual stream statistics are provided to each client, and a master server-wide statistics page is provided in the server administration panel.

    Centova Cast provides monthly, downloadable spreadsheets containing the complete list of songs you've played on your stream in the past month, including detailed information about the date, time, and audience of each performance.

    A performance summary spreadsheet is also available (not shown) which provides aggregate reports on the playback frequency, number of performances, and monthly TLH for each song.These reports can greatly simplify the royalty reporting process required by many music licensing agencies.

    Centova Cast's live listener statistics provide a realtime look at who is listening to your stream right now, including listener countries and user agent information.
