FLEXIBLE PROGRAM SOURCE
STARCall’s innovative Managed Audio sub-system offers the opportunity to provide background music, news, special events, or radio-style localized programming from any input source to all parts, or selected areas, of your building.

or international news event, seasonal music, or even a recording done by one of the school’s music ensembles at a concert or competition.
Any program source that generates a standard audio signal is compatible with STARCall’s Managed Audio feature. Output devices include CD/MP3 players, radio tuners, cassette players, microphone amplifiers, etc.
Two discrete programs may be offered simultaneously to different parts of your building, allowing targeted broadcasting of audio programs based on content.
