A radio focus in this edition of the newsletter which sees yesterday’s release of Airtime 1.6 level the playing field for low power FM stations, community radios, digital broadcasters and online radio stations everywhere with our latest professional, stable automation software now available.
Firstly, it improves your workflow through scheduling and remote access. Secondly, it’s open source (good for karma). Thirdly, it contains all the stability and core features you need to automate and run your radio station, from anywhere, through any browser. Finally, it’ll cost you nothing.
To find out more about Airtime, our open radio software for scheduling and remote station management, visit http://airtime.sourcefabric.org where you can demo and download.
We’re looking for tips, tricks, workarounds, how-to guides and more on Newscoop and Airtime, our open source tools for journalists. This is your call to action - it’s free and will benefit the rest of the community from Shinjuku to Sao Paolo. (By the way our website had visits from 137 countries last month. That’s around 70% of the world!)
There’s also a host of videos up from our Test Signals event in Berlin - dive into the tactics and magic of radio with leading experts from around the world at our Vimeo site.
Huge thanks to Daniel James, who’s already busy at work on the equivalent tome for Airtime.
There’s been a lot of debate in the team recently about how often to release and naming the releases. We’re still discussing the finer points, but we’ll certainly be having a regular release agenda and not postponing for late feature requests. This means greater reliability and stability for our users throughout the year. login.sourcefabric.org is the place to get involved in all our dev stuff - wikis, repos and bug trackers all under one roof.
