Today, multitasking, device-driven audiences consume nonstop visual media. If you’re in the radio business, your listeners might need more than just audio to thoroughly enjoy all of your content.
If you decide to add visual elements to your radio production, here are some of the things to look for in a self-contained solution:
- Full Automation: With audio level detection for smart switching and presets;
- AI Smart Switching – based on mic audio levels: Use your existing microphone lines to setup AI Smart Switching. You want the output looks natural and dynamic;
- Uses Any Audio Console: Make sure it’s audio-interface independent;
- Audio-over-IP: In addition to support for analog, AES, or MADI, look for a solution also supports audio-over-IP;
- Auto Clip Playback: For easy playback of synchronized clips, jingles, and commercials; and,
- Multi-Camera Shots: You’ll want to define a variety of camera shots for each live microphone.
