SmartWeb

Unattended Worldwide FTP Audio Delivery System from Smarts Broadcast Systems

Use it for automated weather forecasts, automated news feeds, automated make goods and much more!

More and more program providers are transmitting their programming digitally via the Internet. Now Smarts Broadcast Systems introduces the SmartWeb, a fully automated software system that can log onto FTP sites of program providers, download specified programs and either present them to the station as Mpeg audio files, or for Smartcaster and Skylla Customers, drop them directly into the inventory for play to air. You can think of it as a virtual satellite receiver, without the need of the satellite. Programming simply appears on your hard drive in time for you to play it to air.

There's no time spent manually downloading programs and dubbing them into the system. Just set the SmartWeb to grab the files you want, and they will be there, week after week. It's even better than a satellite feed because your audio is right there on your digital system hard drive when you need it.

There are many ways to use the system. For example, satellite stations that miss scheduled national spot feeds no longer need to record the make goods and schedule them. Just set up the SmartWeb to download the make goods directly to the hard drive and schedule them to play when you want them on the air. It's all automatic. News reporters can feed stories in from laptop computers with full broadcast quality, and have them on the air in minutes. There are literally hundreds of uses for this product in broadcasting.

Many satellite program providers are now beginning to deliver programs via Internet. Rather than place these programs on some sort of psudo-satellite receiver, really a computer that logs in and downloads the data then plays it on command, just grab the program via SmartWeb and it's ready to go on the air.

SmartWeb also can interface to The Beat, a revolutionary news gathering program that uses Internet based voice mail to relay news, weather, sports or other reports from any phone, including a cell phone, directly to the server of your Smartcaster or Skylla System. Read about it below.

The SmartWeb and the Beat are two innovative products from Smarts Broadcast Systems, where we are always looking for ways to use technology to improve the broadcast industry. Call us for more information.
