Boston, MA (April 21, 2010)--The new Program Length Manager (PLM) from 25-Seven Systems Inc. stretches radio programs and segments by several minutes an hour, reportedly without pitch change, artifacts or glitches.
If a syndicated or brokered program and local content don't add up to the allotted slot, PLM can stretch the program to fit without the need for filler material or extra production steps. In addition, inserting additional material without program interruption can be accomplished with PLM and not perceived by listeners.
"In radio, every second counts," said Geoff Steadman, 25-Seven president. "Program segments need to start and end exactly on time, with seamless transitions. And editing time is precious in the production room and in the field. So if a piece is just a bit long or a bit short, network headends and stations that rely on prerecorded programming can let PLM assure continuity and maintain their focus on creative radio."
