It’s been known for a while that Docker, and containers in general, are slowly creeping into IT infrastructures.
Research shows they are stable enough to use exclusively in production – so why don’t we hop on the bandwagon for radio?
Insanity Tech is developing AudioEngine – a collection of scripts and utilities for virtualising a radio station’s streaming stack. Such a stack will include Icecast, Digital Signal Processing, & DASH and HLS segmentation, and worry-free deployment through a single configuration file.
The development code is up on GitHub, and developers are, as always, invited to contribute.
