Clearbox Systems supports Digital Radio transmission in Canberra, Darwin and Hobart

IMG_3245Clearbox Systems has been selected by Broadcast Australia, a BAI Communications company, to provide DAB+ digital radio multiplexing, program monitoring and network timing software, hardware and support. The systems are being deployed in Canberra, Darwin and Hobart as part of the transmission services being provided by Broadcast Australia for two national broadcasters. The Canberra and Darwin systems are already on air with Hobart due in early 2018.

The systems provided consist of hardware and software from Digidia who Clearbox Systems represent in Australia. As part of the roll-out, Clearbox Systems and Digidia engineers have performed the configuration and integration of the systems and will continue to support them under a support arrangement.

The commencement of permanent DAB+ digital radio transmission in Canberra, Darwin and Hobart is in line with the allocation of licenses by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) over the past 12 months.

DAB+ digital radio allows broadcasts to offer their popular analogue stations simulcast in digital quality, as well as new digital only stations – offering more choice and better quality audio to radio listeners.
