 International digital delivery specialists Mirror Image have launched Audio Streaming Service, a new transcoding service for radio stations that enables broadcasters to deliver live audio streams at multiple bitrates and formats anywhere in the world using the HTTP protocol. The service supports MP3 (including MP3pro), AAC (including aacAAC-HE, aacPlus v1, aacPlus v2) and Ogg Vorbis file formats. Distribution support includes large radio directories, aggregators and portals such as iTunes Radio Directory, TuneIn, and Icecast. Mirror Image’s regional director (content delivery solutions) Chris Frampton, commented that the new service would appeal to “particularly those (radio stations) looking to get access to UK Radioplayer on all platforms. The requirements from UKRP Ltd state that stations have to deliver to all mobile platforms, they are not allowed to deliver to just one.” Additional features of the new transcoding service include support for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows, and many other mobile operating systems, redundant ingest, stream authentication with stream expiration and targeting with geo blocking and stream monitoring. www.mirror-image.comwww.radioplayer.co.uk
