Alaska Public Media and its affiliates deliver content that reaches 97% of the population of Alaska.

KAKM’s OASYS system includes 4 playout channels with Extended Graphics capability and Secondary Record. 1+1 Redundancy Manager on the Main channel and Time Delay using “Time Play” for Kids.

“According to Bob Wyatt, Chief Technology Officer at KAKM, “The OASYS platform gives us much more capability and flexibility than our previous automation system, which helps operationally as we move to more unmanned hours in Master Control”. “The change from traditional Master Control to the OASYS Integrated Playout system is a big step ahead for us.”
