Get smart: The Ecreso FM 3kW compact transmitter, shown at IBC last year, is enhanced with SmartFM

SmartFM is a worldwide patented algorithm which enables broadcasters to reduce energy costs by 10% to 40% without any compromise on the audio quality and coverage, claims WorldCast. It is compatible with all recent generation Ecreso FM transmitters and can be activated through a software upgrade or license activation.  

Nicolas Boulay, co-president of WorldCast Systems, said: “To support our customers during this tough period, it means a lot to us to contribute in some way. Covid-19 is impacting all industries, worldwide, including FM radio. During these uncertain economic times, limiting costs becomes crucial and for this reason, we are offering SmartFM.”  

Boulay added that the amount a broadcaster might save depends on the network and output power. For example, with one Ecreso FM 10kW transmitter broadcasters can save up to €4000 by the end of the year, or with one Ecreso FM 1000W transmitter, up to €400 can be saved. 

To activate SmartFM, users should contact their Regional Sales Manager, or contact WorldCast Systems.
