Industry Standard

Many systems claim to offer an industry standard but the truth of the matter is that there is no such thing, at least in UK radio. At the time of writing, the UK's largest commercial radio group, Global Radio use a system called Genesys. The UK's second largest group, Bauer use Dalet. Then the mid sized groups use a mix of RCS (such as Wireless Group) and Myriad (such as Lincs Group). National stations are a similar situation with talkSPORT, talkSPORT2, talkNews, Awesome and BFBS all using Myriad. Absolute uses RCS and Classic uses VCS as do most of the BBC stations except for a few independent World Service installations using Myriad. So software use in commercial radio is fairly mixed with no one system being able to claim to be the 'standard' in commercial radio.

If you step back and look at the wider radio industry in the UK including community radio, hospital broadcasting, internet radio and educational broadcasters (inc schools and higher education) then there is a much clearer pattern emerging. Myriad Playout and used in the majority of community and hospital radio station in the UK as well as a very high number of educational establishments. All told, Myriad is installed at more than 1000 radio stations in the UK making at as close to a standard as possible. As most students looking to enter the world of radio will likely experience radio at all levels, the skills they learn using Myriad will put them in a great position.

The Future

Myriad is also the only commercial radio radio software system developed and supported in the UK making ideally suited to the UK market and able to adapt more rapidly to the every changing landscape of broadcasting. The introduction of social posting directly from playout is just one example of how we are constantly evolving our ecosystem to meet the needs of current and future broadcasters.
