Powerlog Audio & Data Logging

Powerlog Audio & Data Logging

PowerLog is a multi-channel software based audio and data logging system. In fact it was the first system of it's kind in the UK and is now the most commonly used system in UK commercial radio. The basic idea is that PowerLog records one or more incoming audio feeds and keeps them on the hard disk for a set time before finally removing them, thus creating a maintenance free, rolling log.

In addition to logging audio, Powerlog can also log a range of additional data including hardware I/O (which allows stations to log when the presenter 'mics' are open), silence detection, DAB text logging, RS232 logging and more.

In addition, PowerLog has the ability to have up to three different quality levels within a single logged period. This means that you can have your logs at high quality linear for the first few days, then drop down to a lower quality for a few weeks before dropping to the final quality level for archive.

The final ingredient in the PowerLog sandwich is the PowerLog Client which is a free piece of software that can be installed on any PC in your station and offers virtually instant access to any point in any of the available logs. You can also view all the hardware events, DAB text and recorded silences. The PowerLog Client allows you to grab any sections of the log and extract it at any quality and in any supported format, so whether your are reviewing your log, making promo's, sending ROT's (Record Off Transmission) to advertisers or tracking down a problem, the PowerLog Client is all you need.

Powerlog is available as either a software purchase or as a monthly subscription which includes software, support and upgrades.


There are also a number of package deals and discounts available for education and registered charities so please contact us for a personalised quote.
