Mill Valley, CA (August 9, 2005) — WorldVibrations announced that it has integrated podcasting into its WorldVibrations Radio Station, creating the first all-in-one broadcasting, streaming and podcasting appliance. The new WorldVibrations Radio Station & Podcaster (WVRS-P) is a professional-quality, studio-quiet device about the size of a VCR that allows users to develop, manage and operate a live or automated radio station over the internet, or over the air if properly licensed, while simultaneously producing and uploading individual podcasts.
The WVRS-P makes it easy for people with no previous radio experience to program and broadcast performances, sporting events, church services or town council meetings, even create a professional 24 hours a day music or information radio station while publishing on-demand podcasts at the same time.
Users can capture live programming as it is broadcast on the WVRS-P for later podcasting or produce separate podcasts offline, integrating music, jingles and other material already stored on the unit while the radio station runs other content uninterrupted in automation-mode in the background. Once the podcast program is produced and edited, the WVRS automates the creation and uploading of the MP3s and XML pages needed to publish podcasts.
“The WorldVibrations Radio Station & Podcaster is a podcasting device for broadcasters and a broadcasting device for podcasters,” said Russell Johnson, president of WorldVibrations. “It enables internet and over the air broadcasters to easily podcast their programs and lets podcasters tie their podcasts together into their own continuous 24 hour radio station, scheduling and inserting promos, announcement, features, music and even commercials.”
WorldVibrations also announced it has agreed with Live365 to integrate the company’s broadcast tools and services into the unit to allow internet broadcasters, as an option, to get up and running on the popular internet radio service in minutes.
