How the Other Guys Miss the Mark
Slow and software-intensive solution
They add more software to Linux or Mac computers already bogged down by Operating System (OS) software creating latency and scaling issues.
Redundant WiFi Required
They require customers to buy and maintain expensive, confusing, redundant WiFi systems.
Low Processing Power
They use a single computer processor for multiple input audio streams adding latency.
Lack of Tech Support
They lack the technical depth to support their customers because they buy private labeled hardware and apps from 3rd parties. We design, develop, assemble and support every product in-house.
Ad Portal M.I.A.
They either do not provide capability for adding custom content within the App or it is so complicated they require you pay a monthly fee for them to manage.
They only provide analog audio input resulting in need to buy expensive digital adapters for some audio sources.
Batteries Not Included
They do not provide free audio and ethernet cables for their customer’s application and do not provide a free marketing kit for promoting TV audio to smartphone technology.
Can’t Integrate Into Your App
They cannot provide software or expertise for integrating audio into your existing App to increase adoption and usage of your App.
Rack Mounting Required
Their large, cumbersome equipment must be rack-mounted.
Confusing, Distracting App Interface
They try to re-create your website within their app, making them anything but user-friendly and distracting users from the sole purpose–streaming local audio.
