StreamGuys will debut SGrewind at the NAB Show

Tuesday 12 February, 2019

The upcoming 2019 NAB Show will mark the North American debut of SGrewind, the latest module in the enterprise-class SGrecast live stream repurposing and workflow management system from StreamGuys.
 
Automatically retaining a rolling window of replayable content, SGrewind lets radio broadcasters give their listeners network DVR-like abilities to rewind, pause, or restart a live stream from the beginning of a program.
 
The comprehensive, cloud-based SGrecast platform lets broadcasters record, repurpose, replay and rewind their live streams to improve audience experiences and effortlessly create revenue-expanding side channels and podcasts.
 
For example, mobile consumers can pause a live radio stream will passing through areas with poor connectivity; a listener joining a talk show late could restart from the beginning of the program; or a commuter about to leave home could jump back to the station’s most recent traffic segment.
 
SGrewind’s live audio DVR capabilities are processed at the server rather than client-side, enabling broadcasters to integrate multiple players and apps with the same rewindable stream while avoiding the need to use precious storage on listeners’ devices.
 
It also integrates seamlessly with SGreports logging and analytics service to provide details of rewound content within in-depth listener metrics and can leverage SGrecast’s blackout capabilities to prohibit rewinding during rights-restricted content, while upcoming functionality will allow users to selectively purge previously-recorded snippets to prevent replaying of unexpected offensive or legally-sensitive content.
 
StreamGuys executive vice president, Jason Osburn, says “We continue to add new SGrecast features that help broadcasters easily, efficiently and inexpensively repurpose their content, improve audience engagement and deliver more value to their advertisers or sponsors.
 
“Enabling listeners to rewind live streams means they can hear more of the station’s content that they might have otherwise missed, benefiting the broadcaster and its advertisers, while giving consumers the convenience of not having to wait until the end of the current program for an archived recording to be published.”
