Text Box: Barnabas Road Media, Inc. (BRM)
BRM was founded with the idea of fundamentally changing the way streaming media services are delivered to broadcast radio in North America. We rapidly realized radio stations were being penalized for doing well on the Internet by having simultaneous listener and monthly listening hour caps applied. Excess bandwidth charges had driven some broadcasters to extremely low and bad sounding Internet broadcasts. Other broadcasters had increased their bandwidth to the point that dial-up users we no longer able to access a sustainable stream. Still other radio stations had given away one of their more valuable assets to stream hosting services who care more about advertising and the revenue to be made from advertising than radio programming and listener enjoyment. BRM is a streaming media network designed for radio stations and broadcast networks. We take a network approach to solving common problems.
BRM is committed to providing streaming media hosting services to North American broadcasters without limits that will hold the growth of internet broadcasting back from being successful for each streaming radio station.
BRM uses proprietary bandwidth calculation methods, advanced bulk bandwidth purchasing, and a method of planning bandwidth utilization facilitated by the formation of Market Based Cluster Groups (MBCG) in order to provided ample network bandwidth at an affordable price for all.
