Antenna Radio was conceived to address the evolving demand from radio listeners who are migrating from conventional radio but want to stay connected to real-time news with personalized content, program flexibility and uninterrupted mobile access anywhere they go.
Antenna Radio offers radio fans a terrestrial radio-like listening experience conveniently wrapped up in a smart mobile app. The short-form talk, information and entertainment programing on Antenna is customized to meet each listener’s specific preferences. The more a listener uses the app, the more personalized the content becomes. In addition, Antenna Radio also provides listeners with access to convenient regional or location-based information including traffic and weather updates.
"Many of us drive to work or go for a run, and while we’re active, reading Twitter or CNN content on a screen is not an option. Antenna Radio is a new way to stay connected to timely, personalized content that fits right into our busy daily schedules,” said Elliot Loh, creator of Antenna Radio and co-founder at The Giant Pixel Corporation. “When using Antenna Radio, listeners can stay connected to time-sensitive and ‘perishable’ content such as news, sports or entertainment, in a more convenient way. Our goal is to reinvent the terrestrial radio experience, giving listeners access to the world-class talk radio they love, but delivered when and where they want it."
Currently, Antenna Radio boasts more than 1,000 channels of curated high quality, short-form content. Channels are selected according to criteria such as quality, length and relevance to the experience users want. Channels are further targeted by proximity to major U.S. radio listening markets, and users have the option of adding location-based updates like local weather and traffic reports. With each use, Antenna Radio learns listener preferences and draws on crowd-sourced ratings to adjust each user’s programming in real-time, building up 30 minutes of program clips to match their behaviors and tastes.
Antenna Radio also provides several key benefits for the app’s curated program content. Specifically, the Antenna interface has been designed to help promote radio show producers with a player interface that supports branded program graphics and a “channel profile” that includes hooks to social platforms like Twitter and links directly to selected radio show websites. In addition, Antenna Radio plays audio directly from radio program servers, preserving producers’ relationships with listeners and partners.
Antenna Radio is one of a growing portfolio of products developed by Giant Pixel, with a mission to create real value by connecting people to the things they need, want or love through the Internet. Giant Pixel’s product portfolio now includes both Nama, a fresh take on project management, and Antenna Radio.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
