Yame FM has chosen DigigramIqoya *Link hardware for studio-to-transmitter and studio-to-studio transmissions.
The first broadcaster in Japan to install the Iqoya, Yame FM is a new community FM radio station based in Yame City. The station has four transmission sites across the city, and devotes considerable attention on transmitting public information including environmental and earthquake alerts, according to a release.
Yame FM has installed Iqoya *Link units in the master control room, satellite studio, and at the transmitting sites. This, says Digigram, allows the broadcaster to benefit from high-quality transmissions with better failover provision and at lower costs than it could achieve with traditional ISDN leased lines.
Hiroyuki Ishihara, chief officer at Space Creators Alliance, Digigram’s regional distributor said: “This is the first significant deployment of Iqoya in Japan, and demonstrates how easy it is for radio broadcasters to switch to a secure IP solution that is compact, energy efficient and easy to manage.”
