|‘Radio Assam’ internet service launched|
GUWAHATI, April 18 – VedantiNET, the broadband and application service provider of Guwahati promoted by SM Computer Consultants Pvt Ltd, has launched the service of first Internet Radio of Assam, ‘Radio Assam’, in the city.
Informing this at a press conference, Dr Sanjib Barthakur, director of SM Computer Consultants Pvt Ltd, said that the radio channel that functions on 24/7 basis, addresses the Assamese community worldwide with all frontiers of musical exposures that were being published during the last 90 years in the State along with discussions on various political, cultural, social and contemporary issues.
The URLs of the station are www.vedanti.com/radio and www.vedanti.net/radio and operates on a redundant manner. “Streaming audio signals with more compatible adaptation on the Internet is the essence of the performance of this channel keeping in mind the sudden explosion of FM radio stations all across.
Moreover, the conventional file player radio or music download concept has been overruled and replaced with a true streaming technology to incorporate its functionality,” he said.
The listener requires a PC/laptop with either a broadband or a narrowband Internet bandwidth link at a steady rate of not less than 32 kbps and should have Windows Media, Adobe Flash, Real, QuickTime or iTunes player pre-installed in the system. Mobile sets with GPRS or 3G connectivity may also access the radio channel.
