OFCOM COVERAGE ENHANCEMENTS FOR COMMUNITY RADIO


Congratulations to the 74 radio stations named in today's announcement from Ofcom for being awarded an increase in FM coverage. Whether it's a re-broadcast relay service, new - more powerful - transmitter, or even a Power Amplifier you require, Bitstream Broadcast can supply cost effective TX Digicast brand FM Transmitters for all requirements. We also have an antenna design, system planning and integration service, if required. We can also commission systems. Just tell us what you need and we'll do the rest.

SMALL SCALE DAB DEMONSTRATION


Naturally some UK broadcasters may want to use the lower cost 'open-source' route to launching a DAB local multiplex, once licenses become available. We've put togther Linux systems capable of encoding, multiplexing and modulation, and can demonstrate the entire DAB chain - from the microphone to the listeners' radios. Whilst open-source modulators still don't provide everything required for an economical and easily compliant transmission service, we thought we'd evaluate what can be done. Feel free to contact us and discuss options for SSDAB.

SMALL SCALE DAB


We've been in the DAB Digital Radio transmission business for nearly 15 years, but the UK Regulator's recent plans to bring DAB licencing to truly local levels means that we've seen a surge in interest from both potential broadcasters and from FM equipment suppliers, wanting to know more. As such, we've written a short article on how Small Scale DAB will work, from a programme distribution and transmission perspective. You can find the article here.

TUNNEL RADIO


Bitstream Broadcast has supplied a large number of FM tunnel systems to Systems Integrators across Europe in recent years. This complex area of same frequency FM re-broadcast sets many challenges - and we are well placed to help and advise. Ask us about DAB systems with emergency 'break-in' and cutting edge 'Optical RF' solutions.

DAB SIGNAL BOOSTER


Bitstream Broadcast has supplied many retailers with MicroCell DAB+ repeaters to help them demonstrate portable DAB radios. In basements and inner shop floor areas, where outside signal penetration is poor, our Repeater 're-radiates' the original DAB signal. Unlike a wired aerial amplifier system, it provides DAB coverage for all kinds of portable devices. Clients include Curry's and John Lewis.

TV RECEPTION SURVEYS


Developers are required by law to assess the impact on terrestrial television and radio reception and, if necessary, take steps to remedy any problems. Bitstream Broadcasting Ltd is a specialist with many years experience in this field. We offer a full service, from initial survey to complete 'remedy' installations. Our fully qualified broadcast engineers use state of the art computer modelling software together with professional test and measurement equipment. We also provide a rapid turnaround. Clients include Barratt, Berkeley Homes, Dandara, Henry Boot and many more.

SYSTEM INSTALLTION


From milliwatts to kilowatts, our experience in DAB, TV and FM is extensive - and backed by BBC trained engineers who spent decades pioneering digital broadcast technology. The quality of our work is commensurate with that of corporate Network Providers, but at a much lower cost. We work towards achieving 0% down-time, by using back-up in every part of the transmission and programme feed chain.

Into spring, with more orders and, once again, making time to evaluate the latest improvements in ODR MUX tools. Still no modulator with pre-correction to match the spec of our true broadcast products, but it probably won't be long!
