WireReady Version 12 plays mp2/mp3 files

WireReady V12 and later now plays mp2 and mp3 files in addition to WAV. It is no longer necessary to convert files that arrive compressed into your systems. Customers with current support contracts may download software upgrades in the tech support area of our website.   Note: If you are already running Version 12 and play mp2/mp3 files, we recommend version 12.009 or later which includes several updates for speeding up the display of large audio folders and setup options for how often the list refreshes.
Do NOT accept free upgrades to Windows 10

Customers running on Windows 7 on mission critical news and automation machines should NOT accept the free Microsoft offer to upgrade to Windows 10. Doing so can mess up 3rd party device drivers, important settings and other installed applications causing your machine to be out of service for a day or longer.  There does not seem to be any benefit upgrading a Win 7 machine to Win 10 for use with our software and we will be supporting Windows 7 for years to come.  If you are buying new computers in 2016 and you can't find them with Windows 7, then Windows 10 is okay, but the longer you put this off, the more stable Windows 10 will be, especially with 3rd party device drivers.  Windows 7 is still our preferred OS.
Tired of annoying Upgrade to Windows 10 pop ups?

If you are tired of the annoying Windows 10 free upgrade pop ups, go here for info to suppress them www.wireready.com/windows10.php. Customers with support plans can also have us perform this work for you at no charge during Monday-Friday 9a-6p ET hours.    
WireReady can now capture RSS feeds from WWO, ABC, and other radio network RSS providers

WireReady customers who use our newsroom system and have a support plan in effect can now request a free capture app upgrade which will let them connect with news providers who now distribute via RSS feed. Customers are already capturing Westwood One and ABC Radio Networks feeds with our software.  We can capture just about any RSS feed. Other radio nets may soon offer their info via RSS as well. Our capture engine can pull in the story text and any linked audio files automatically into your system. If you don't currently have our newsroom software, but want to automatically pull in network RSS feeds from distributors onto your hard-drive, we are offering special "capture only" packages for as little as $395 which can automate the delivery of all your RSS feeds into your studio. Our complete electronic newsroom system are also available at installed prices starting as low as $995.

Remote control your automation using simple touch tone codes on a regular phone line

ControlReady Version 12.0 now lets you create up to 1000 alpha-numeric-based actions you can trigger by phone or other devices in the station. Connect a phone line and low cost autocoupler/tone decoder to your system and any touch tone sequence from your cell phone (or serially sent string) can cause ANYTHING to happen in our automation. Load a high school football playlist, start the game, play the next break, resume normal programming (restart deck), re-import today's traffic log, play a liner, play an ID, play the next break, switch and record the weather, put yourself on the air, etc.
