Global Radio Details Euro Satellite Plans

European satellite radio developer Global Radio chose Dalet to help design a digital audio infrastructure for its broadcasting facility, to operational by 2005.
“Dalet developed a similar system for American satellite radio leader XM Satellite Radio, which operates the largest digital facility of its kind in the world,” Dalet said in a statement.
Global plans a system that will include live studio, live-assist and automated capabilities, multilingual programming, data applications, editing, commercial insertion, security and resource management and cost tracking.
Global Radio was founded in 2000 and is headquartered in Luxembourg. It is developing the continent’s first satellite digital audio service, aiming to provide 70 to 140 channels via three satellites. Programming will include 25 to 30 trans-European channels plus local language, talk and thematic channels for seven regions.
The company plans data services compatible with mobile phones, PDAs or home stereo systems geared to users in their cars, including navigation, points-of-interest, traffic and weather, software downloads and narrow-band video entertainment via MPEG-4.
