NCH Swift Sound release BroadWave, offering a simple and effective way to broadcast over the Internet.

NCH Swift Sound, specialists in business audio software, announced the release of BroadWave a streaming audio server allowing you to broadcast up to eight different live streams from a single PC.

"BroadWave allows almost anyone to broadcast audio over an intranet or the Internet without needing a great deal of technical knowledge” said Stephanie Lee, sales manager for the Canberra based company. "Sound can be fed live via the line in from the soundcard or the application can stream prerecorded audio files. The benefit of using this application is the listeners do not have to install and special software to listen, they can use the default sound player on their operating system.”

BroadWave handles the audio stream compression, player format negotiation, bandwidth adjustment and serving over the Internet. When used with pre-recorded audio the application will allow unlimited number of streams to be served. A super efficient and optimized server design means that, if you have the bandwidth, up to 500 simultaneous connections can be served on one PC. Designed for both corporate and consumer groups the licensing structure sees a freeware version and a paid version.

“We have also just released a multi-track mixing application called MixPad”, said Stephanie. “It is currently a free application and users can combine this with our very successful audio editor, WavePad, to create and produce the static audio that they serve through BroadWave”.

NCH Swift Sound is a leader in audio technology.
