What is SHOUTcast?

SHOUTcast radio is a streaming audio solution which permits anyone to broadcast audio to listeners across the internet. You basically become your own radio station, but instead of broadcasting through radio waves, you broadcast through the internet. Your listeners can tune in through any supported media player.

Icecast and SHOUTcast make Internet Radio the biggest advertising opportunity of the future.

Forecasts suggest as much as 68.4% percent of U.S. internet users will have become online radio users by 2018. This makes Icecast and SHOUTcast technology critical to all businesses and organizations wanting to reach big listening audiences.


What is Icecast?

ICEcast is a streaming server which allows radio stations to effectively broadcast audio online (this is known as webcasting). It is powerful and stable, meaning you can throw all your internet radio traffic at it without having crashes or other problems. Audio listeners can access the stream through any live MP3 supported media player.

Internet radio has the potential to be the most ubiquitous form of media ever. More commanding of your attention than film, television, or books. This is because listening to podcasts, talk radio and music can be enjoyed while doing other activities.
