Listen Again

Our podcasting platform can provide a stream on-demand solution for your content to prevent unauthorised downloads.

And Canstream is the only internet streaming provider that we know of to offer ALISA – Automated LIsten Again – that has been developed in-house.  ALISA is designed to fill the gap between your online streaming and your Listen Again platform.

With ALISA you can record your station’s output and automatically upload it to the Listen Again platform.  Just complete an online schedule with details of your shows and everything you wish to record gets automatically uploaded.

Video streaming

Canstream can provide your project with a professional Flash video streaming solution.  Mix live video, interviews, presentations and archive content into a live video stream for our servers to broadcast.  Or choose to have a webcam in your studio to visually engage with your radio audience.
