Under the agreement, which GBS said is exclusive, Octave also covers associated MaxxCasting sales, field service and post-sales support.
“Octave and GeoBroadcast have had a long, collaborative relationship in the U.S. based around Octave’s market-leading Nomad HDR/FM Analyzer, which is a key tool supporting the implementation of its MaxxCasting system,” GBS said in the announcement.
Octave is an engineering consulting firm specializing in radio broadcasting, telecommunications and RF analysis measurement software. MaxxCasting is a synchronized booster system for FM broadcasters. GBS says it increases signal quality and PPM watermark decoding, and allows geographic targeting and fencing of radio screen advertising.
