Technology Inc is the recipient of the radio broadcast industry's most

Only a small number of products were chosen for the Radio World "Cool Stuff"

radio managers and engineers, covering technology, industry news, management
techniques, applications-oriented engineering, production articles and new
product information. Radio World is published by NewBay Media LLC, the world's

"Congratulations to Stu Buck and Arctic Palm for winning a Cool Award for some
really cool software. The combination of iMediaTouch, Arctic Palm and Inovonics
RDS at the NAB in full operation really impressed the trade show judges.
iMediaTouch has integrated with Arctic Palm for its RDS and Copy features since
2003 with tremendous success. Clients are really pleased to buy a product that
dove tails with our iMediaTouch automation system as well as Arctic Palm does.
Our customers also appreciate the new revenue Arctic Palm products generate in
RDS and Websites using iMediaTouch XML outputs and making the system simply
start paying for itself the minute it is switched on.
Keep up the good work Stu and we wish you continued success."

The Center Stage Live package from Arctic
Palm is best known for its handling of metadata. This package has the tools
necessary to capture, format and display now playing and promotional messages on
RDS\RBDS Encoders, HD Radio Systems, Web sites, on-line players or other devices
such as digital signs. In addition to capturing events from one or more
automation systems, Center Stage Live includes an advanced copy scheduling
module for scheduling promotional messages by date, day of week and time of day
or to be "triggered" by now playing events within the automation system.
"Center Stage Live adds incredible value to RDS content when paired with
Inovonics' RDS Encoders", says Inovonics' COO/Sr. Engineer Ben Barber. "The
listener's display, 'comes alive' with rich content including Station Branding,
Artist, Song Title info and the 'Buy it now' features found in RT+."
(Go Green) The same scheduling processes used for CSRDS can also be used to
schedule live copy to the on-air studio. This ensures the right copy is in the
right place at the right time which can go a long way in reducing or eliminating
the need for printed copy. The user definable copy window provides on-air staff
with easy access to the latest up-to-date copy. For iMediaTouch users, live copy
is available within the Op-Log computer and can even be included in the daily
log for automatic pop-ups.
With the cost of paper, ink, printers, maintenance and the impact on the
environment, the Center Stage Live Paperless Studio is a great way to Go Green
and save money at the same time.
A major factor in any development is aligning with great partners and our
association with some of the best in the business has been invaluable. Today,
Center Stage Live works with many automation systems and RDS/RBDS encoders.
Thanks to companies like Inovonics, iMediaTouch and Stream the World we have the
detailed understanding needed to make systems work together.
Of course the real strength of all of our products comes from listening to those
that use our products. The features and functionality of our Center Stage Live,
CS Copy Management, CS Contest Management, CS Interactive and CS Call Management
are all the result of listening to and acting on the comments, suggestions and
requirements of those using our products. It is this kind of cooperation and
support that has allowed us to build some really "Cool Stuff"!
As computer geeks that have been developing software for too many years to
count, there can be no greater complement than to be recognized as "Cool Stuff"
by such an organization as Radio World…this is truly an honor.
