AzuraCast welcomes any related code projects, hosting partners, media agencies and freelance journalists to utilize our branding as needed to refer to our software.
This page will provide our images, audio and files that you may wish to include.
AzuraCast is a free and open-source, self-hosted, all-in-one web radio management suite. We like to refer to it as a “web radio station in a box”, as it includes the full stack of open-source software needed to start up a new radio station, broadcast to listeners and manage everything via a web interface.
AzuraCast’s history dates back to late 2012 in the form of our predecessor project Ponyville Live. In spring 2016, the project was rebuilt as the self-hosted web radio management suite it is today. Our branding and marketing still heavily features our unicorn mascot (designed by Tyson-Tan) as a tribute to our fandom roots.
AzuraCast was created by Buster “Silver Eagle” Neece, who remains the project’s lead developer. He is supported by a second developer and a community moderator.
Today, AzuraCast powers thousands of installations and continues to be actively maintained on a daily basis.
The Press Kit contains the following:
- Promotional Audio Files along with a License Certificate
- The AzuraCast Mascot, known as the Azura Ruisselante, created by Tyson Tan
- Logos with text and without text.
- Hexagon Logos
- Discord Emoticons
