WorldCast Systems has announced a supply agreement of Ecreso FM transmitters to Radio Maryja, a religious Polish radio station.
The project was won through WorldCast Systems’ partner, BCAST, an emission services provider for public and commercial radio and TV broadcasters in Poland.
BCAST, already a user of Ecreso transmitters, continues its partnership with WorldCast Systems through this new purchase of over 20 units.
This order will be used to supply BCAST’s own stations as well as replace Radio Maryja’s transmitters in multiple sites across Poland.
As the new broadcast operator for Radio Maryja, BCAST will ensure the reliable emission of their FM signals in 12 cities, including Warsaw, Lublin and Czestochowa.
The new Ecreso equipment, ranging from 300W to 5kW powers, will support SmartFM, the first worldwide patented artificial intelligence for FM radio.
This technology was developed by WorldCast Systems and offers benefits, including an enhanced listening experience for the most sensitive program content, lower power consumption by 10 to 40% through electricity savings and reduced cooling, and reduced CO2 emissions.
Pioneer, the Radio Maryja project, is one of the first commercial deployments of this AI technology.
“When constructing our own products, and in our collaboration with suppliers, we are looking for breakthrough solutions that will allow us to attract customers. We believe that technology such as SmartFM revolutionises the market with a new, better way of broadcasting FM radio,” said Krzysztof Karpiński, BCAST board member responsible for sales.
Some other advantages of Ecreso transmitters are their high efficiency of up to 76% and a host of onboard features such as 5-band sound processing, dynamic RDS encoding, MPX/Composite over AES compatibility, and an advanced communication pack including an intuitive web interface, now available in Polish.
