PowerLog is a multi-channel software based audio and data logging system. In fact it was the first system of it's kind in the UK and is now the most commonly used system in UK commercial radio. The basic idea is that PowerLog records one or more incoming audio feeds and keeps them on the hard disk for a set time before finally removing them, thus creating a maintenance free, rolling log.

The success of PowerLog however, can be attributed to the additional facilities that we added to the basic premise. These included logging of hardware I/O which allows stations to log when the presenter 'mics' are open, silence detection, DAB text logging, RS232 logging and more.

In addition, PowerLog has the ability to have up to three different quality levels within a single logged period. This means that you can have your logs at high quality linear for the first few days, then drop down to a lower quality for a few weeks before dropping to the final quality level for archive.

The final ingredient in the PowerLog sandwich is the PowerLog Client which is a free piece of software that can be installed on any PC in your station and offers virtually instant access to any point in any of the available logs. You can also view all the hardware events, DAB text and recorded silences. The PowerLog Client allows you to grab any sections of the log and extract it at any quality and in any supported format, so whether your are reviewing your log, making promo's, sending ROT's (Record Off Transmission) to advertisers or tracking down a problem, the PowerLog Client is all you need.

Powerlog Lite

Following in the footsteps of it's big brother, PowerLog Lite offers all the rock solid reliability and basic functionality of PowerLog without all of the frills.

Designed for stations that just needed a singe stereo (or two mono) logs and don't need all of PowerLog's more advanced features, PowerLog Lite offers a lower cost route that makes PowerLog technology accessible to all stations.

PowerLog Lite allows you to record one stereo or two mono logs and maintains PowerLog's ability to keep three quality levels across the logged period. PowerLog Lite uses the same PowerLog Client as it's big brother and so retains most of it's powerful features. 

Key Features

  • Create 'directory' listings of all the PowerLog Capture systems in your group and access them all from a single Client.
  • Supports multiple audio formats including PCM (linear), ADPCM, MP2, Ogg Vorbis and Windows Media Format.
