SmartRadio is a cloud- and web-based radio-as-a-service platform and is developed in-house by Broadcast Partners in the Netherlands. SmartRadio offers 100% software-based solutions. This enables clients to launch a relatively simple production environment without having to expand and/or set up the physical hardware and engineering in house.

The trend that is being set worldwide, and partly given a boost by COVID-19, is that functionality must be hybrid and increasingly available remotely. The solution that makes this possible is the virtual installation of services that can be remotely controlled in a user-friendly way in SmartRadio. Recent articles published in Radioworld, where webinars and virtual meetings are frequently reported on, increasingly discuss these technical possibilities and explain user cases.

SmartRadio follows this philosophy and consists of several hybrid modules that can be adjusted monthly. The price depends on the chosen functionality. The advantage of this is that operational costs decrease and there is more financial room for innovation. Technically speaking, SmartRadio consists of various microservices that can be set up as public or private cloud-based upon request and according to the client's wishes.



Through a very user-friendly web-interface in the Chrome browser, work can be done in SmartRadio and customized solutions are possible. Database track import and changes, playlist control, scheduling of formats and -commercials are all possible in real time. Mixpoints in playlists can be adjusted in the 4 channel Multitrack editor, whereby the required audio can be listened to in the browser without latency.

In the latest release of SmartRadio, a link with the software package AerOn Studio has been realized. It is now possible to use AerOn Studio's database and format planner as a guide. This creates the possibility for current AerOn Studio users to use SmartRadio services for launching thematic channels or edition-schemes.

Previous publications around SmartRadio have also presented the possibility for virtualized audio processing. SmartRadio exclusively includes an impressive solution developed in collaboration with Orban (Labs): Smart Processing. This completes the chain to a CDN or DAB+ headend and allows end-users to define web based all presets and changes to this product as well!
