WorldCast Systems announced Version 2.3.0 of its Ecreso 5/10 kW FM transmitter. It said the added features will provide easier maintenance, more control and cost savings.
The transmitter now uses Version 2 of SmartFM, an algorithm that WorldCast says enables broadcasters to reduce their energy consumption by up to 40 percent.
“After many tests and deployments worldwide, WorldCast has updated the five saving strategies to adapt to on-field conditions,” the company said. “In particular, SmartFM V2 brings a new ‘Extreme Savings’ strategy for when broadcasters need it most.”
The transmitter also can automate a configuration change or send GPIO commands in case of specific alarms, which the company said is a unique feature. “Complementary to the scheduler features, the automation is part of the Communication Pack license,” it said.
The transmitter also has RDS improvements. “Management of the UTF8 is now available, as are Danish-language characters.” In addition, there is reinforced security from remote FTP via new access restrictions.
