Continuing to upgrade its Internet broadcasting options, streamer portal Live365 now offers LiveSafe, something of a software or virtual silence detector.
Upon detecting silence or a loss of feed, LiveSafe will leap into action and activate a predetermined playlist. A spokesman told RW, "LiveSafe works like standard broadcast failover in the sense that it is automatic. However, it is not automatic based on silence but rather based on connection attempts over 20 minutes, [which is] a default setting." LiveSafe can also be used manually to move between a live feed and prerecorded material.
Live365 recently revamped its Web operations with a new embedded media player, improved directory and other updates.
The California-based company has been sending content since 1999; it features around 250 genres of music produced by some 7,000 “broadcasters and music tastemakers.”
