Phone products could be overlooked at big conventions in favor of bigger, flashier devices but Broadcast Bionics hopes you’ll pay attention to its PhoneBox 4 talk show system. It allows users to manage social media, phones, prizes, codecs, email, SMS from one cross-platform multifeatured software application.
It allows stations to tap into social media. It can filter, select and queue Facebook posts, Tweets etc. Operators can see a running commentary on chosen subjects and engage with potential new listeners on air! Listeners can Tweet back directly to the studio, rate them or add to a VIP list.
The company says that smart cues hook into a playout system to give official artist feeds for the tracks that are played, or location co-ordinates can be used to find out who’s saying what from an event downtown.
The user interface exploits the latest touchscreen technology improving workflow and simplifying complex tasks. PhoneBox 4 is scalable to suit any size enterprise from a single studio small independent through to national and international broadcasters, the company says.
PhoneBox 4 can use SIP, ISDN or analog lines with superlative audio quality through its audio server software or from a Telos VX.
