Myriad is also used across the spectrum of radio broadcasters with our customer base including commercial, community, hospital, internet, student and school radio. So the system included in your studio package is the same technology we supply to the rest of the radio industry.

Your studio package also includes Myriad AutoPlayer which is a simple, self-contained system for playing pre-recorded shows or lists of content at specific scheduled times. This is ideal if you don't need to broadcast 24/7 but do want your content to be played at key times.
