SAM Broadcaster PRO
Online broadcasting is certainly something you can hardly find among your average user's day-to-day activities. This requires suitable tools and takes the expertise of a professional to wield them the right way.
Those interested in trying this activity first hand may get a change through a user-friendly software app called SAM Broadcaster. It is a powerful utility that is fully equipped with everything one would need to start an online radio station.
Approachable tool for online broadcasting
The clear and well-organized interface allows you to load tracks, add effects for voice and music, as well as to create and manage a playlist, to mention only part of the abilities of SAM Broadcaster. The program comes with really good streaming encoders that work with mp3PRO, OGG, WM9, MP3 or aacPlusv2.
These encoders will make the stream readable by MusicMatch, Live365, Winamp or Windows Media Player, not to mention servers like SHOUTcast, IceCast or StreamCast. A neat feature of SAM Broadcaster is its ability to display in the main window the number of listeners currently connected to it, as well as the highest number of connected stream viewers.
Rich set of features for audio effects
As far as the "equipment" are concerned, rest assured that you'll get pretty much everything you need. The voice and sound special effects are accompanied by equalizers, faders, along with a track queue and history, not to mention a playlist manager and track organizer that can help you put tracks in appropriate categories.
The "FM transmitter" and "Voice-Tracking" features keep SAM Broadcaster ahead of the game, while some handy event and FTP logs, together with statistics and an event scheduler complete the list of goodies.
All things considered, with SAM Broadcaster you simply can't go wrong. Very easy to use even for less experienced users, and packing a lot of features that may appeal to those with advanced knowledge in this area, the software tool is definitely one of the top choices in its category.
