WorldCast Systems Completes 1,650th Ecreso FM Transmitter to Germany
WorldCast Systems FM Transmitter brand, Ecreso, has dealt with FM broadcasting for over 60 years. The recent delivery of its highly redundant 10kW FM Transmitter to ARD member, RBB (Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg), completes a successful year delivering Ecreso transmitters to German broadcasters and radio stations. With a total count now arriving at 1,650 Ecreso FM delivered to Germany, WorldCast Systems hits the top position as the country’s #1 supplier of FM transmitters.
Ecreso’s deep specialization in FM transmitters covers a range of low, medium, and high-power systems. Amongst these, the flagship product highly appreciated by its German customers is the 5/10kW FM Transmitter with its high level of reliability, redundancy, and up to 76% efficiency. Some of its unique features include an integrated digital modulator, 5-band sound processor, RDS encoder, MPX over AES compatibility, advanced measurement interface, full SNMP management, and more. Its smart design enables reliable, low maintenance, and great sounding FM broadcasting.
The Ecreso FM 10kW were supplied to RBB by MediaLantic. “Following successful installs of Ecreso FM transmitters at BR and WDR, Medialantic were happy to trust Ecreso engineering for this major site at RBB,” says CEO Veit Wegmann. As well as these and other ARD members, Uplink Networks GmbH recently entrusted WorldCast Systems with an order for over 800 Ecreso FM transmitters. The project included thirty Ecreso FM 10kW transmitters, some of them equipped with Ecreso “As Solid as 1+1” in-built full redundancy, as well as a number of turnkey solutions with double drive and n+1 configurations.
“Following our extensive laboratory tests as well as experience with WorldCast’s ECRESO transmitters, we felt it was clear that none of the other alternative manufacturers’ systems came close,” says Michael Radomski, CEO at UPLINK. “When it comes to FM transmitters WorldCast is, in our opinion, the undisputed leader in the European market”.
Ecreso transmitters, including the launch of a new redundant 3kW and SmartFM, the first Artificial Intelligence for FM radio, will be showcased at IBC in Amsterdam, September 14-18, booth 8.C58.
