What’s happening at RCD Radio? What’s New?

studio-pic26RCD Radio 24/7 Streaming
The reason RCD Radio is currently offline and has been for a few months is due to the lack of high quality equipment, I will not stream in poor quality, I refuse, with this being said I would like to announce my aim.

However, on its way is a brand new Dell Precision T3400 machine which shall be used as a server to support a 24/7 Live Music Stream, it was ordered early yesterday morning and is expected to arrive on Friday 5th September, once we have it up and running, you will be the first to know by our blog.

IdleChat IRC
Our chat used to be held on the iPocalypse IRC network, but recently, iPocalypse has merged in to one great big giant ball of fire with another network (Known as DamDevil IRC) and is now called IdleChat, what does this mean to you? absolutely nothing, the only difference is that the name of the network has changed, you can still use your same old username and password like you always have, this paragraph is a huge shout out to IdleChat!

DJ Lozo - Wide Shot - Now That's What I Call Music Volume 2Shop
The RCD Radio shop is currently closed while we sort out a new company to print our T-Shirts, you may be able to pre order T-Shirts at some point in the future, but for now, dealing is still going on, we shall update the blog when you can pre order T-Shirts and we shall include it on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

Vaughnlive – Ustream
After hours of considering it, we have decided to switch video streaming platforms for our main stream from Ustream to Vaughn live as Vaughn live meets what we need in order to Live stream, for now though we are going to be giving it a trial run and if it does not turn out as good as we hopped, we shall return back to Ustream, you can check out our stream on Vaughn Live and follow us at http://vaughnlive.rcdradio.com

Justintv
As you may of already heard, Justin.tv shut down in early August and for obvious reasons we do not have any plans to continue with this company, all domains and URL’s to Justin.tv have been removed from our site.

RCD Radio Needs You – Donate for a new Broadcasting Machine

DJ Lozo Suit during NOW! Volume 3 PointingToday I have been setting up a campaign to get a new broadcasting machine for the Live Stream at RCD Radio, why? well right now we only have the one machine which is doing a awful lot when we are Live Broadcasting and can be the cause for stream lagging and not so good picture quality because the software needs to run on allot of ram and a fast CPU.

I have decided to set up a campaign on indiegogo.com which was suggested to me by a friend, I am looking at getting a reasonable machine for about £300 – £400, with a fast CPU and lots of RAM, (About 4gb of RAM) this machine will then be running the Live video and audio streams for RCD Radio.

In order for this dream to become reality, I will be asking heavily for donations over the next month, the fund raising will end on May 1st 2013 and any funds we have during that time will go towards the new machine.

RCD Radio Logo RedThis would be amazing if we could reach the goal of £1,000, even though the machine I plan to get is only in the range of £300 – £400, I am planning on getting some new equipment, such as a new webcam, sound card and a new licence for our broadcasting software, wirecast, any funds left over will be used for google advertising or to pay off any other services we use for RCD Radio.

I really hope you will help fund us using this site, I have embedded the link below so you can do it directly from this post, please also read our Perks, you get something in return if you donate so much to this fund, also have a read of the full description on the site.

Share this short link with everyone on facebook and on twitter: http://fund.rcdr.me <- This links to our page on IndieGoGo.

Thank you and please consider it! Not much time to do this.
