Backbone Targets Talk Radio Producers to Join the Cloud
Announcing Backbone Production Suite™, an integrated set of cloud-based talk radio tools for online and AM/FM stations, promising “Your Station Anywhere”. Today, you can produce and host your programs from any location in the world, with co-hosts spread around the globe, all simultaneously contributing in studio quality through the power of the cloud.
The elements of the Production Suite — Backbone Radio™, Backbone Talk™ and Backbone Co-Host™ — include the essential workflow for live and automated radio production and streaming, phones and reportage.
Backbone Networks is transforming radio production and broadcasting with the help of “the Cloud”. Our innovative services are aimed at helping existing AM/FM stations achieve greater production values while lowering operating costs and capital expenditures. Backbone also creates 24/7 online radio stations for companies, organizations, and seasoned radio veterans that want a turnkey station with minimal infrastructure.
For existing AM/FM stations
Backbone provides the cloud-based service tools to:
- Take on-air phone calls from listeners—with a real talk radio setup
- Team up with guests and co-hosts in other cities, live, in studio quality
- Have your roving correspondents report live with just an iPhone or iPad
- Invite after-hours voicemails from listeners (“Crank Line”) for on-air play
- Schedule syndicated shows—through Backbone’s network in the cloud
For totally new stations
Backbone Networks is turning radio “inside out” compared to the traditional broadcast model. Forget about producing live over-the-air programs from a confining terrestrial radio studio, and then “simul-streaming” them. Backbone gives you the freedom of the Cloud. Your Station Anywhere.
