We’re officially launched!
This Friday we officially launched the project. During the conference “Broadcast (R)Evolution 2017” in Studio 3 in the Stockholm office of the Swedish Radio Camilla Jettman, VP of development, officially launched Project IRIS Broadcast.
Cilla Benkö, managing director of Swedish Radio – the public radio of Sweden – started the day with a talk of the importance of SR in the swedish society, the importance of a public radio and the need to be closer to the audience. The new IP based technology and the mobility has changed the way radio is produced in Sweden. Sharing our experiences during the conference and publishing the core system, the Codec Call Monitor, as open source software will help public radio stations globally to follow the lead set by Swedish Radio.
– The purpose with open source is to give more users access to the source code, invite more people to contribute to the code base and to share our development with others. We hope that more users get involved in the development of the project, says Camilla Jettman, VP of development.
– The software now being launched under an Open Source license will provide a platform that simplify radio broadcast for the users, can be user-controlled and is not tied to any single vendor, says Lars Hedh, head of method and development.
