System integrator Telmaco and DAB+ head-end manufacturer Factum Radioscape were selected by Greece’s public broadcaster ERT, Ellinikí Radiofonía Tileórasi, to install the first permanent National Multiplex for DAB+ Radio. Building upon the success of the pilot project in 2018, ERT continue broadcasting seven radio programs in DAB+ across Athens using Factum Radioscape’s ENMUXA DAB+ System. The first DAB+ Multiplex at Ymittos shall pave the way for future rollout across Greece.
Owing to Factum Radioscape’s technical expertise, ENMUXA is at the forefront of broadcasting software for digital radio. ENMUXA has proven to be the most reliable, versatile and cost-effective system on the market. The innovative web interface makes every aspect of the Multiplexing process, from audio and data ingest to ensemble distribution, easily manageable.
The entire broadcast chain will be monitored and validated utilising products from Factum Radioscape’s unrivalled OBSERVA range. The monitor’s customisable software applications utilise SNMP, real-time data and instant alerts to deliver a cost-efficient tool for network validation, supervision and multiplex management of EDI, ETI and RF.
Factum Radioscape’s Commercial Director, Andy Joseph, said: “The past year has seen the ENMUXA and OBSERVA product ranges providing the lift-off for many new territories in Europe, Asia and Australia. There is further innovation in the pipeline which will enhance the DAB experience for broadcasters and listeners alike”.
Factum Radioscape’s Sales Manager James Waterson: “The launch of DAB+ Radio in Greece has been a very smooth process. The pilot project was very useful for ERT to familiarize themselves with ENMUXA and see the benefits it offers to both broadcasters and listeners. We look forward to working on the next stages of the rollout with Telmaco and ERT.”
