Centova Cast v3 is the culmination of over 3 years of development. So much has changed that it’s impractical to list every update here, but read on to learn more about the most significant changes in this release.

Manage a single station with ease, or automate a stream hosting business with thousands of clients. Centova Cast v3 can handle virtually any stream hosting scenario!

Brand New Look

This new release brings a brand new, glossy user interface with plenty of animations and effects, which we hope will be easier on the eyes and more intuitive for newer users.

Centova Cast v3 still provids an easy-to-use web-based control panel to each client, allowing you to manage your own streaming server account on demand.

The client can stop and start his server, edit his settings, review resource usage and statistics, browse stream logs, and obtain access to a variety of information about his stream.

Centralized Administration

Centova Cast v3 offers unprecedented control to administrators managing any number of Internet radio streams. Through the Centova Cast v3 web-based administration panel, administrators receive a consolidated overview of all client accounts (optionally across multiple servers) from a single, convenient interface.

Information is available at-a-glance about overall server resource usage and individual clients’ resource consumption. Each client’s complete account details and configuration is never more than a click away.

Client Self-Management

Centova Cast reduces support calls by providing an easy-to-use web-based control panel to each client, allowing the client to manage his or her own streaming server account on demand.

The client can stop and start his server, edit his settings, review resource usage and statistics, browse stream logs, and obtain access to a variety of information about his stream.

Stream Monitoring

Centova Cast v3 includes a built-in monitoring system to minimize downtime in streaming server accounts. Should a ShoutCast or IceCast server crash or unexpectedly go offline for any reason, Centova Cast v3 will automatically restart the server within a matter of seconds, and can notify the administrator and client of the outage.

Web-based File Management

The addition of a brand new, AJAX-based file manager allows clients to upload, manage, and remove files without ever leaving the familiarity of their web browser.

For those of you that still prefer to upload your files by FTP, the FTP connection information is still included in the Quick Links tab of your Centova Cast v3 Auto DJ Control Panel. You will still need to manually update your Centova Cast v3 Media Library.

Statistics and Reports

The statistics system has been completely redesigned using AJAX to improve responsiveness and interactivity. Additionally, statistics are now displayed in the client’s selected time zone, and are no longer limited to 60 days of history. Historical statistics can also be downloaded as spreadsheets.

Stream Start/Home Pages

Centova Cast provides each stream with its own AJAX-driven, interactive and informative start page.

Most of these are also available as a standalone, AJAX-driven JavaScript widgets which the stream owner can use on his own web site.

    Features include:
  1. Stream status and current song
  2. On-demand content downloads
  3. Recent tracks list
  4. Song request form
  5. Station tune-in links
  6. Map of listener locations

Reseller Support

Reseller accounts are an excellent way for any stream host to increase revenue. As of version 2.2, Centova Cast includes a complete reseller system allowing clients to re-sell the hosting provider’s services to third parties.

The administrator can set resource limits for each reseller account just like he would for client accounts. Each reseller receives his own, personal administrative interface to create, manage, and remove his clients’ accounts, similar to the Centova Cast master administrator account.

Copy Paste Code Snippets

Centova Cast provides the most comprehensive streaming radio statistics system commercially available today. It provides information about listener trends and demographics, data transfer, track performances and popularity, user agents, and much, much more.
