Added lines 10-13:

the streaming protocol we use is SHOUTcast. using this protocol, we can include various metadata with the stream (artist, title info, etc) and receive info about number of listeners.

we use the application nicecast to encode the audio and metadata as a SHOUTcast stream, then send it to voscast so that multiple listeners can access the stream without each listener needing to connect directly to our studio computer.
