Auza.Net Celebrates DYRD-AM Worldwide 5th Anniversary with Android™ App Release
Auza.Net celebrates the 5th year anniversary of its information technology enabled live broadcast of DYRD-AM worldwide with the launch of its first mobile application for the Android™ based mobile devices. The free DYRD-AM Worldwide android app is available for free download on its website at www.auza.net , on the DYRD-AM website at www.dyrdam.com and on the Google Play store beginning July 8, 2012.
Exactly five years ago today, Auza.Net and Bohol Chronicle Radio Corporation engaged in a pioneering partnership that brought the live news and public affairs programs of DYRD-AM to listeners worldwide through the www.dyrdam.com website. The launch of the worldwide broadcast changed the local broadcasting industry because now Boholanos from around the world are able to keep themselves updated with the happenings in the province as if they were here. They are also able to provide feedback and greetings through the website.
With mobile Internet becoming very prevalent in many countries, the two companies believe that the DYRD-AM Worldwide mobile app is a fitting update to the media streaming technology employed on the website. The mobile app allows users to listen to the radio station’s broadcast while on the move as long as the user has connection to the Internet.
Aside from releasing the mobile app, Auza.Net also updated DYRD-AM’s streaming server system allowing for studio quality audio. At the same time, the live video feed now implemented using the UStream service which enables viewing of the video directly on the website.
The DYRD-AM Worldwide app is initially available on the android platform but will be available on the iOS (iPhone/iPad) platform soon. The app allows users to instantly “tune-in” to DYRD-AM with a few taps on their mobile device.
The app release also marks Auza.Net’s venture into mobile application development.
