Stingray Will Deploy MaxxCasting

First deployments of the technology in Canada

From our Who’s Buying What page: Canadian broadcaster Stingray plans to use MaxxCasting systems from GeoBroadcast Solutions to reach listeners in outlying suburbs of its radio markets.

These will be the first Canadian deployments for MaxxCasting.

Stingray operates approximately 100 radio stations in that country. GBS quoted Stingray Engineering Director Chris Maclaurin saying, “Our biggest challenge has been broadcasting into areas within the predicted contour that the signal wasn’t covering.”

He said engineering consultants Octave Communications proposed that the company use the MaxxCasting solution.

MaxxCasting uses a combination radio and cellular technology to enable FM stations to enhance their signals with the deployment of a cluster of low, directionalized synchronized booster sites.
