USRN’s Phantom Producer Now On Androids


If you’re a radio production exec with an Android-based phone, there’s a phantom on your communication device.

That may actually be a good thing.

United Stations Radio Networks, a marketer and syndicator of network radio programming co-founded in 1994 by Dick Clark, Ed Salamon and Nick Verbitsky, has unveiled an Android-based app for its Phantom Producer imaging service.

The app promises full functionality of the Phantom Producer to any connected Android device, bringing the ability to send mixed files directly to the studio server or cloud-based storage.

The concept of mixing production on your phone – or, taking imaging mobile – was introduced by Phantom Producer with the 2015 release of an iOS-based app for Apple devices.

The addition of an Android offering rounds out a full suite of device capabilities for the service, which now offers 9 different formats.

This news follows the announcement in June that the service had been granted a U.S. patent.  The patent serves to protect the technology surrounding the process and delivery over the internet and mobile networks.
