Ecreso FM 5-10kW is a fully digital transmitter for analog FM and is the most powerful product in WorldCast Systems’ Ecreso portfolio.
Engineered to meet the needs of the most demanding network operators and stations, it combines reliable performance, high efficiency of up to 76%, and state-of-the-art innovations. Truly revolutionary, the Ecreso 5-10kW has a built-in 1+1 redundancy which ensures it stays on-air with minimal or no power loss.
With the Ecreso FM 5-10kW, broadcasters benefit reduced maintenance thanks to hot swappable power supplies, power amplifiers and fans, as well as a multitude of onboard features such as SmartFM, a patented Artificial Intelligence for FM bringing up to 40% energy cost savings.
This advanced broadcasting solution is the result of decades of experience and a mission to bring to market the best FM transmitters in terms of total cost of ownership and audio quality.

Inspired to meet the highest demands for a redundant solution in critical applications, the As Solid As A 1+1 design of the Ecreso FM 5-10kW is the result of intensive R&D developments to:
By adding this intrinsic redundancy in the Ecreso FM 5/10kW, you do not need to purchase 2 complete 5 or 10kW transmitters plus the control unit & installation cost but ONLY the “As Solid as a 1+1” concept. This way you benefit from the same level of redundancy than a 1+1, while reducing costs by more than 30 k€!
In FM transmission, the most critical but also the weakest modules are PSU, power amplifier, fans & the control unit. When designing the Ecreso FM 5-10kW, we payed specific attention to 4 essential and critical elements.
PSU loss: 10kW stays on-air
With up to 8 Load-sharing PSUs able to provide each 3.5kW, the transmitter can run at nominal power even with the loss of 3 PSUs!
1 MOSFET Loss:10kW stays on-air
The Ecreso FM 5/10kW utilizes 2.3kW Power Amplifiers, each with 2 MOSFETs. In the event of 1 MOSFET failure, the transmitter still operates at nominal power. Even with the loss of 1 complete amplifier, the transmitter remains at nominal power!
1 Fan loss: 10kW stays on air
Cooling is the masterpiece of transmitters. If there is no or not enough cooling, the heat increase may damage the transmitter or cut the RF. But our transmitters are designed to stay ON! The Ecreso FM 5-10kW includes up to 4 oversized fans operating at half speed and powered by 2 cross-fed PSUs.
Control Unit Loss: 10kW stays on air
The ability for the transmitter to continue operating even under failure conditions is a key consideration. In the event of a complete failure of the control unit on the ECRESO FM 10kW, the transmitter stays on-air with its last known parameters.
Ecreso FM 5kW and 10kW are SmartFM compatible with SmartFM.
SmartFM is a sophisticated algorithm, or AI, which enables broadcasters to reduce their energy costs by up to 40% without any compromise on the audio quality and coverage.
The Ecreso FM Transmitter range 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.
ECRESO FM 5-10kW is accompanied with a range of monitoring and control solutions
so users have full control, locally and remotely.
