The latest and most powerful system in our range, the ECRESO FM 5kW/10kW transmitter offers a truly revolutionary approach to high power FM transmission.
With all the key advantages of the core ECRESO range, the ECRESO FM 5kW/10kW adds a whole new dimension of reliability, redundancy and efficiency. The power amplifiers, power supplies and even the fan modules are fully hot swappable and redundant and a completely passive 6-way coupler ensures that, should one of the amplifiers suffer a fault, the transmitter can stay on-air with minimum power loss indefinitely until the fault is rectified.
The highly efficient, self-monitoring power supplies contribute to a transmitter system efficiency of up to 76%, the highest available in today’s FM broadcast market.
The unique architecture and innovative design ensure ease of access, ease of use and ease of maintenance.
Reliability is the cornerstone of the ECRESO FM Transmitter design and all our components are selected on the basis of their robustness and reliability. The power amplifiers, power supplies and even the fan modules are fully hot swappable and redundant. The unique architecture and innovative design ensure ease of access, ease of use and ease of maintenance.
From program inputs right through to the final conversion to RF, signal generation and control are performed entirely by digital means. This ensures an exceptionally pure, crystal-clear audio signal with the highest audio fidelity.
Direct to Channel Digital Modulator
The new ECRESO FM 5kW/10kW pallets use a new planar design offering even better performance (up to 86% efficiency), improved reliability, repeatability and ease of maintenance.

The Ecreso FM Transmitter range also features an integrated multi-band sound processor! This fully digital sound processor offers the highest signal quality and outstanding reliability as no additional hardware is required*.
You can choose from a wide-band or a multi-band version to achieve the level of processing required at your site and the processor is supplied with a full set of presets for many different formats and requirements.
Sound Processor interface
Automatic Gain Control
The first stage of the processor is an automatic gain control which regulates the perceived volume level of the station output across all audio sources and formats. It uses predictive algorithms and protects against unwelcome increases in noise.
Equalization, Bass and Treble Enhancers
The AGC is followed by enhancers which embellish both the low and high frequencies. Combined with 3 parametric equalizers, they enable the creation of a distinct sonic signature.
Stereo Enhancer and Limiter
A stereo enhancer can be used to improve the stereo image of your station when using non-mono content. It also includes a stereo limiter to improve the quality of your station in areas with problematic coverage.
5 Band Processor
The 5 Band Processor dynamically adjusts the gain of each audio band. Depending on the selected preset, it can work as a slow and purist multi-band leveler, or as a fuller processor to create a strong sonic signature. The fidelity parameter enables you to fine tune the bands according to your preference; from a purist sound to a more colored texture.
5 band Limiters
5 limiters have been designed to facilitate the work of the final clipper. For soft formats, the limiters provide smooth protection for your final audio and for commercial stations, they can be used to create extra loudness.
This section uses several limiters including HF and final low distortion limiters. In addition, and independently of any preset, the ECRESO FM Transmitter can be configured with an MPX Power Limiter and a deviation Hard Clipper for transmitter protection.

WorldCast Systems offers a standard warranty of 3 years on all our FM transmitters and up to TEN YEARS' Warranty on our range of compact FM transmitters and new ECRESO FM 5kW/10kW for a small additional charge.
No other FM Transmitter Manufacturer even comes close to that commitment or confidence! We can offer the 10 Year Warranty with confidence thanks to:
EMR is a proactive service available on ECRESO FM Transmitters. It sends the user regular reports on the status of key parameters such as temperatures, currents and voltages, plus information on the performance and lifespan of components such as the fan and power supply of the transmitter.
With detailed logging and trend analysis, Expert Maintenance Reporting can identify slow-burning problems and issue warnings well in advance to allow for corrective action to be taken. A map-based display of current statuses and detailed, user-friendly reports and graphs can be accessed around the clock in the EMR user page.
The WorldCast Manager simplifies the management of all SNMP-enabled devices in a network, providing real-time status, historical data and visualization of multiple devices from a single screen. The intuitive and simple-to-use interface shows all devices located at your site(s) displaying product information, alerting you to any alarms and providing one-click access to the unit’s web-based control interface.
The WorldCast Manager is compatible with all WorldCast Systems’ equipment as well as SNMP devices from ANY manufacturer.
«Following our extensive laboratory tests as well as experience with WorldCast’s ECRESO transmitters in the field, we felt it was clear that none of the other alternative manufacturers’ systems came close.…When it comes to FM transmitters WorldCast is, in our opinion, undisputed leader in the European market.»
