In the world of radio automation, here is a product that will probably announce some changes to come. Google Radio Automation is an all-in-one radio automation system that seems to include everything needed for modern broadcasting including podcasting.
The Google Radio Automation user interface is widget based for easy customization of the workspace.
Google Radio Automation comes packed in a 19″ rack enclosure featuring ability to cope with up to 3 removable drives but can also handle Google’s RED external RAID to support up to 12 drives for a max of 7.5Tbytes storage. Considering that one minute of CD-quality audio roughly represents 10 Mbytes, that’s quite some room to store audio files.
Last but not the least, Google Radio Automation natively supports Google AdSense for Audio.
If interested, just have a look at the show roadmap planned for the coming year.
What about the relevance to the radio uses, the performance of the product, its business model and finally its adoption by the radio broadcast industry? The future of Google Radio Automation will be interesting to follow.
