SoniXCast was initially founded in 2009 by Brian and Inge Walton to support Inge’s hobby as a Broadcast DJ and offered simple, low cost stream hosting services based on ShoutCast. Within a short period of time, SoniXCast grew to host over 100 radio stations and officially opened up shop in New York City in 2010.
In 2011 SoniXCast was approached by Sony Interactive Entertainment (sie.com) to develop a high quality network for their motion picture branch in order to share audio and video data with industry professionals located worldwide. The network concept and related patents were adopted by the IETF (ietf.org) in 2012.
In 2013 SoniXCast was approached by Premier Global (pgi.com) to develop network based audio recording and archival systems for their Web Meeting platform which later became an integral part of the iMeet platform.
Also in 2013, SoniXCast opened an office in Montreal Canada and began a long standing relationship with SOCAN (socan.ca) to offer cost effective fully licensed stream hosting worldwide.
Since then SoniXCast has released their global broadcast network hosting over 50.000 Internet and Terrestrial Radio Stations (SoniXFM.com) which has now become the largest radio broadcast network worldwide.
