This article will walk you through the setup of a basic Now playing export to your Futuri Streaming transmitter, using Center Stage Live, or CSRDS as a tool from Arctic Palm that can be used to distribute Now Playing information from various automation systems. Before beginning, you will need to assign your transmitter a static IP address. Click here for instructions on how to set up a static IP address for your transmitter.
