Information Technology Committee (Formerly Technology Committee): March 5, 2014

Call to Order
Present: Markus Lowe, Johrdan Vicstein, Cleveland Dietz, Ronald Neely, Richard Fish
6:00 PM

Improving Our Streaming Signal

WFHB will switch its streaming service providers. Markus recommended we go ahead and sign up for ShoutCheap and keep our service with GoDaddy until the new stream was in place and operating. This was agreed. We will pay for two services for one month. ShoutCheap will save the station at least $5.00 per month, and provide more reliable service. It will also give us more capacity. The present stream begins to have problems when 20 or more listeners are on at the same time. The new stream will be good for 50 listeners, and is scalable in steps as our audience increases. ShoutCheap also gives much better statistics and analytics. The high-quality stream will still be 128K, and the low-quality stream will be at least 32K (as it is now), but could be greater.

Cleveland will sign up for the service, and Markus and Johrdan get the new stream up and running.
