   What is DNAS?
   DNAS is SHOUTcast's Distributed Network Audio Server. It is the software that run on our servers, and it is responsible of receiving the audio from the broadcaster, update the SHOUTCast directory with broadcast information (title, artist, bitrate), and sending the broadcast to the listeners.

   What difference does a higher bit rate make?
  
A higher bit rate has both positive and negative effects. The positive effects that your listeners will get a much fuller, richer sound quality, so your voice, or the song you are playing will be much clearer to the ear, 128kbps is what most songs are download from via the internet, so that would be perfect for you if you want the optimum sound quality. On the negative side, people with dial-up connections will experience buffering (stopping and starting) of your stream if you stream at a high bit-rate. Although dial-up internet is virtually non-existent nowadays, some people in remote areas still have it, so check with your listeners before you upgrade to a higher bit rate. What a lot of people do nowadays, is have 2 different streams, one which is high quality (128kbps+) and one which is low quality (32kbps and below).

   What is AutoDJ?
   The Auto DJ service for SHOUTcast enables you to broadcast your pre-recorded content 24/7 without human intervention or the need to have a computer running. It is also known a radio schedule software or radio automation software. The service features a simple media management interface that makes the process of uploading your mp3 and aacPlus files extremely easy. Once on the system, you can create as many playlists or schedules as you wish using the simple drag and drop interface. Each playlist can be scheduled and weighted allowing you to setup complex show rotations along with idents and adverts. The service utilises the latest Serverside technology, making it extremely easy to use. No need to worry about uploading your content at the bitrate you wish to broadcast as the system will automatically re-transcode on the fly to suit your broadcast. Additional Auto DJ features include automatic cross fade between content and the ability to cover gaps in live broadcast so while one DJ disconnects and another connects, the audience is not left with ‘dead air’.
