Your self-contained Radio Station in a box.
RadioBox is “hardware” …
RadioBox hardware is actually your fully contained Radio Station in a box. Whether you use is for broadcasting over-the-air, over-the-internet, or even in a retail environment, all you need to create a custom Radio Station is in the RadioBox.
Based on nearly 2 decades of field-tested “Watchdog” service, RadioBox Pro combines Dutch engineering precision and quality into a piece of hardware that is fully equipped to run your Radio program as you command it – reliably, remotely and with full reportability. RadioBox Pro is built to run in harsh and unforgiving environments. It’s basic design has already served remote locations such as the sands of the Sahara and the icy cold of Siberia – so it is designed to be left in a remote place and built with maximum redundancy. All programming is stored on board in the RadioBox and then is fed updates via internet to accommodate playlist updates.
Well, you might say, isn’t that what a typical Radio automation system does anyway? To some extent, yes, but the difference is that RadioBox is designed to playback at the actual point-of-broadcast (your transmitter, streaming server, etc.) – so it is built on an exceptionally stable system that does not require every-so-often “reboots” and has no moving parts that are likely to fail in extreme environments. And, because RadioBox feeds at the point-of-broadcast, it already incorporates audio processing necessary to deliver a solid and enjoyable Radio output direct to your transmitter or audio stream. Further, you can easily update multiple points-of-broadcast simply and effectively with custom playlists – so your station in City A can run different commercials or weather forecasts than your station in City B. In fact, the level of program customization available is only limited by the physical number of RadioBoxes in your system.
With much of the same functionality built-in that RadioBox Pro offers, RadioBox Lite is a cost-effective audio network distribution solution idea for the retail and hospitality industries – and, even those non-broadcast-critical functions of Radio Stations (online streaming, direct-to-customer custom audio, etc.). The RadioBox Lite is a point-of-broadcast playback device that fits in with the overall RadioBox system to provide effective custom broadcasts, controlled by central network location. This system is idea for branded audio for in-store Radio and other retail applications.
The CruiseBox is a special configuration of 4 RadioBox Lite units, in a rack-mountable system, designed for use as a “head-end” local Radio broadcast point for Cruise Ship and Resort entertainment scenarios. This means that 4 distinct Radio Programs can be delivered to end-users, in their staterooms on board and/or hotel rooms on property. via the in room television or via a specific custom app.
