Developer Douglas Arellanes told BBC World Service’s Digital Planet programme that as well as playing files, which can be done from any media player, Campcaster adds features specifically for radio broadcasting and uses it for all aspects of a radio station, such as the ability to stored and schedule music, line up news clips and interviews, and preview listen to a record before it is played on air. "You can now pretty much run your radio station off a notebook computer," he said.
