We’re thrilled to announce our latest release: Skype TX for Radio!
Launched via a partnership between Microsoft and Broadcast Bionics, Skype TX for Radio offers a much-needed solution for radio broadcasters, enabling more efficient and optimized production workflows.
By allowing broadcasters to integrate Skype seamlessly into phone calls, SMS and social media, Skype TX for Radio combines cost efficiency with easy-to-use features ideal for talk radio, remote hosts, guests and reporters in the field.
Thanks to Skype, for the first time radio stations can produce full multi-line talkshow and contest formats with high volumes of codec quality calls, all from a single PC. In fact, Skype TX for Radio delivers up to 16 lines from a Skype TX for Radio server (or virtual machine), making the system highly affordable and hugely scalable.
Additional features of Skype TX for Radio include:
Expansive global reach – Skype TX for Radio opens new interactive possibilities for developing countries, enables a single point of contact for global broadcasters and allows interaction with podcast/streaming stations without access to traditional phone lines.
Integration with existing radio workflows – PhoneBOX4 user interface enables seamless Skype TX for Radio incorporation, and combines Skype calls with traditional phone lines as well as SMS and social media. Skype TX for Radio integrates access to the full Skype directory and search functionality into PhoneBOX4 as well as adding PhoneBOX4’s caller history, analytics, visual talkback and recording functionality to Skype calls.
Enables connections, in real-time – Reporters can contribute immediately to update rapidly changing situations, sports commentary or results, without the need for taking specialist broadcast hardware into the field.
