Backbone CoHost PL is a fast and easy way for stations to create an always-available “Party Line” conference room for one or more hosts, guests, and correspondents to contribute live audio for your broadcasts. These two-way conversations are enabled by using the groundbreaking LUCI Global service from Technica del Arte and their free, downloadable apps for iOS, Mac, Android, and Windows platforms. LUCI enables these phones, pads, and computers to communicate with and using the same standard formats used by commercial hardware. including COMREX® and TIELINE®.

CoHost PL is a simplified, unswitched version of Backbone CoHost, allowing users to instantly join the broadcast with the touch of a finger. There are no IT settings to configure, no port selections to worry about, and no equipment to purchase or forget in the car. It all works with whatever you’re carrying and over any decent Internet access you can find. (watch video)

Backbone Networks is transforming radio production and broadcasting with the help of “the Cloud”. Our innovative services are aimed at helping existing AM/FM stations achieve greater production values while lowering operating costs and capital expenditures. Backbone also creates 24/7 online radio stations for companies, organizations, and seasoned radio veterans that want a turnkey station with minimal infrastructure.

For existing AM/FM stations
Backbone provides the cloud-based service tools to:

  • Take on-air phone calls from listeners—with a real talk radio setup
  • Team up with guests and co-hosts in other cities, live, in studio quality
  • Have your roving correspondents report live with just an iPhone or iPad
  • Invite after-hours voicemails from listeners (“Crank Line”) for on-air play
  • Schedule syndicated shows—through Backbone’s network in the cloud

For totally new stations
Backbone Networks is turning radio “inside out” compared to the traditional broadcast model. Forget about producing live over-the-air programs from a confining terrestrial radio studio, and then “simul-streaming” them. Backbone gives you the freedom of the Cloud. Your Station Anywhere.
