Best of Show: Ecreso FM AiO Series Transmitter

The design reflects a shift towards “more software, less hardware”

We are featuring the products that won the Radio World Best of Show Award at the recent NAB Show. Winners were chosen by a panel of radio engineers and RW editorial staff for their innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.

Occupying only two rack units, the AiO Series is available at power levels of 100, 300 and 600 watts as well as 1 kW. Ecreso says the design reflects a shift towards “more software, less hardware,” limiting costs of purchasing and maintaining peripheral equipment. 

The transmitter is available with an integrated Audemat RDS Encoder, multiband processing and APT IP Decoder. The latter is compatible with APT’s SureStream software and APTmpX compression algorithm. Also available is SmartFM software, an artificial intelligence technology that uses dynamic rather than fixed RF power to improve operating efficiency. 

Hardware features include new RF planar design and a hot-swappable power supply and fan removable from the front panel. For remote configuration and monitoring, the transmitter has a user-friendly GUI and SNMP support. The Ecreso FM AiO transmitter is natively supported by Kybio network monitoring and comes with a free one-year subscription to that service.
