That standard station is a platform upon which you can also build a more sophisticated streaming solution with full redundancy, add additional streams tailored to the distribution platform, execute targeted multi-platform digital marketing campaigns… and much more. All of it under your control in one dashboard in the Hive audio streaming control center. We’ve got everything you need to stream from the smallest to the biggest radio stations in the world, with complete control, flexibility, reliability and the streamB team, who are on a mission to bring sophisticated streaming solutions to your nearest phone, laptop or tablet at the click of a button. Additional streams are used to provision the most effective codec for the distribution platform: for example provide an HE-AAC for your desktop player but MP3 for Tunein. Adding an additional stream also adds another 750 GB of monthly bandwidth to your station plan, for a total of 2,250 GB monthly for a single station with 2 or more streams! Adding e-mail and/or text alerts for offline alerts will ensure that you, and any Hive user you’ve added to the distribution list, is notified by text and/or e-mail should an offline state be reported for any of streams, wherever you are. The streamB software encoder is multi-channel and available for Windows, iOS and Ubuntu operating systems. You’ll always see two streams in the encoder for each stream you add, because we add a backup stream by default to feed our backup entry point. The streamB encoder can be downloaded from the Services tab in the Hive. Please note that streamB works with a number of 3rd party encoders, it is not a requirement that a streamB encoder be used. Each streamB station comes with 1,500 GB of bandwidth per month. Current bandwidth consumption (month-to-previous-day) is reported in the Billing tab. Bandwidth is offered in aggregate by customer, so if you have 3 stations, you have up to 4,500 GB / mnth of bandwidth available, not 1,500 for each of 3 stations. That means if one of your stations uses 2,000 GB a month and your other 2 stations use 1,000 GB each, you’re going to still be within the free limit (2,000 GB + 1,000 GB + 1,000 GB = 4,000 GB). What does 1,500 GB a month get me? On average, based on our experience with hundreds of radio stations, 1,500 GB provides between 30,000-50,000 listening sessions and 40,000-65,000 hours of tuning each month. Why so wide a range? The actual number will depend on things like the chosen bit rate of your stream, the number of listeners and the average session length. What if I go over my monthly bandwidth allocation? Overage fees are charged as follows: the next 10,000 GB @ $0.077 / GB The next 25,000 GB @$0.069 / GB The next 30,000 GB @$0.062 / GB ...add'l volume discounts ranging from $0.054 to $0.031 / GB based on monthly volume Server-side ad insertion means you can target dynamic ads to anyone who listens to your stream, no matter where they are listening. Ad replacement can be triggered by metadata tags or tones. streamB dynamic ads can also include companion ads (display) triggered to display when an audio ad plays, for customers using the streamB player or their own player coded to deliver companion ads. Dynamic Ads is charged by impression delivered at a CPM rate of $0.50 per audio impression and $0.0875 per companion ad.
