StreamGuys is offering IBC2018 attendees a technology preview of new network DVR-like (nDVR) functionality for live radio streams. The company says SGrewind technology lets broadcasters automatically retain a rolling window of content from their live stream, giving their audience the ability to rewind, pause, or restart a stream from the beginning of a program.
SGrewind will be a feature of StreamGuys’ cloud-based SGrecast live stream repurposing and workflow management system, which the company describes as “a platform for recording live streams and transforming them into revenue-expanding side channels and podcasts.”
According to StreamGuys, co-exhibiting with ENCO, the new feature gives listeners more control of their live streaming experiences by letting them pause and resume streams without missing any content; rewinding for a fixed time period; or starting the stream at a specific segment, similar to a television electronic program guide (EPG).
