JONES RADIO NETWORKS has launched the JONES DIGITAL AUDIO SERVER, a new delivery technology platform for distribution of its radio content. In NOVEMBER, JRN began live transmission to affiliate stations via JDAS. JRN will continue a multi-level replacement program of its older STARGUIDE and WEGENER networks which had served the company since the mid-‘90s.
JRN Sr. Dir./Technology ERIC WILDER commented, "JDAS allows JRN to provide unparalleled control of its content on a national, regional and local basis. We have seen the explosion of technology on the satellite and Internet fronts, and this new platform allows JRN to be at the top of the industry for integration with radio stations and their local platforms. The platform provides a new host of features to our affiliates never before attempted on a large scale."
