BRM announces the introduction of their Zero-G Product Portfolio. Zero-G stands for zero gravity and BRM's "NO LIMITS" policies are designed to shake-up the streaming media industry's policies that have served to hold back or restrain broadcast radio's success on the Internet. Simultaneous Listener Limits and Monthly Tuning Hour Limits have had the effect of keeping broadcasters from freely promoting their web broadcast. Fear of excess bandwidth charges and the lack of a clear path to making a profit on the Internet have brought many a successfully launched Internet broadcast crashing back to earth. Gravity can be defined as a force that restrains, draws back, exerts a pull that keeps an object from escaping the reach of that restraining force. BRM's Zero-G product portfolio allow for a free flying and highly successful orbit of your easily launched Internet broadcast.

BRM announces the introduction of the Listener Service Center (LSC). The LCS was designed to assist radio station's Internet radio listeners with common player problems. There are millions and millions of PC's around the world. Some use other than Windows Internet Explorer browsers, some are on different operating systems, while some simply have older versions of the media player and they just need to download a new version.
The service will only cost a station $30.00 per month. The Listener Service Center will relieve radio station technical staff of the time consuming tasks involved in assisting the station's listeners to tune to their broadcast on the Internet. The station will post a notice and links on their web pages that will bring the station's listener to the BRM Listener Service Center.

BRM announces the introduction of the Dual-Band Option for AM & FM Radio Stations who broadcast their programming on the Internet. The Dual-Band Option allows Dial-up Internet Radio listeners the opportunity to tune into a station's broadcast. Most Dial-up IP Services rarely connect their users at more than a 28.8k stream. That means that if a station increases their Internet stream to 32k or higher bandwidth, the Dial-up listener cannot maintain a constant stream. The broadcast will constantly re-buffer because the modem cannot keep up with the higher bandwidth stream.
BRM's innovative solution allows the station's Dial-up listener to chose a 20k stream, while Broadband and DSL users can chose between two BRM offered streams... 32k or 64k bandwidths.
