Is it possible to manually configure the time zone setting for each user in AzuraCast
Are you wondering does AzuraCast offer support for multiple time zones? The short answer is an emphatic yes! As an advanced web radio hosting solution, AzuraCast’s platform allows for a full range of time zone customizations to ensure a seamless and perfectly synchronized user experience.
At its core, AzuraCast is designed to be a global platform, thus allowing for the integration of multiple time zones into its system. The live broadcast schedule is automatically adjusted to the local time of the broadcaster, making it easier to manage programs, playlists, and more.
Customizing Your Time Zone
The first step to take in customizing your time zone in AzuraCast is to set the “server time zone” in the administrative panel at the bottom-right corner of the web interface. This allows AzuraCast to interpret events in your local time zone, automatically adjusting them to correspond to real-time radio station broadcasts.
Once the server time zone is set, it’s then possible to view, modify, and delete existing playlists, and create new playlists in the local time zone. The list of available musical and non-musical content (such as announcements and jingles) can be filtered by music genre, duration, or scheduled time. This makes it much easier to make sure that the most appropriate content is being broadcast at optimal times.
In some cases, it might also be necessary to connect and synchronize third-party platforms with the AzuraCast interface. This ensures that all content is synced across multiple platforms and services. For example, the Live365 broadcasting platform has its own set of time zone requirements, and it’s possible to connect this service with AzuraCast for a smooth streaming experience.
