Mass communication via shortwave has unique advantages even in the internet age
Simple, free, worldwide
Simple, non-discriminatory reception of information on portable end user devices, independently from network providers and technical infrastructure: These are the unique features which continue to make shortwave an important form of mass media. Therefore shortwave is an important platform for public and commercial radio broadcasters as well as political and religious organisations to distribute their programmes.
MEDIA BROADCAST offers global solutions for this purpose.
From Germany to the whole world
Global radio transmission via short wave
For providers of radio programmes intended for reception around the globe, MEDIA BROADCAST offers comprehensive consulting services and customised solutions for broadcasting signals via shortwave.
We offer all required services from one source, from IT-supported calculation of the desired transmission parameters and coordination of the suitable frequencies to technical broadcasting of the signals via our shortwave station in Nauen near Berlin. The programmes are broadcast from this location with a transmitter power of up to 500 kW, enabling global reception by using partner stations on other continents.
The programme content can be delivered to our transmission site through several channels: Via the internet, via satellite or via telephone and data lines. Recorded contributions can also be supplied on data media.
As a longstanding member of the frequency coordination associations HFCC and G8, we have the contacts and experience required to offer our customers the best possible transmission frequencies.
Additionally, the digitisation of the shortwave signal with DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale) creates new worldwide broadcasting possibilities through this traditional distribution infrastructure, with a sound quality approaching that of VHF reception and additional capability for innovative data services.
Digital around the globe
DRM combines the advantages of analogue and digital radio
Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM) combines the continental and global reception possibilities of conventional long, medium and short wave transmitters with the interference-free digital sound quality we are now accustomed to. Through digitisation of this traditional distribution platform, it is now also possible to broadcast programme-related multimedia information or programme-independent data services around the world for portable and mobile reception. The more efficient digital distribution also provides potential cost savings for the programme providers.
MEDIA BROADCAST played a leading role in the development and implementation of DRM right from the start and today offers comprehensive transmission possibilities using this new standard in Nauen near Berlin.
