WorldCast Systems provides extremely reliable N+1 systems as complete turnkey solutions with customized and compact rack integrations. The ECRESO N+1 control unit can manage up to 8 FM programs (up to 8+1 systems). Using standard SNMP protocol, any fault on the main transmitter is automatically detected by the ECRESO N+1 which switches to the reserve transmitter.
The ECRESO N+1 supplies the intelligence for the system and all delays, program priorities, switching conditions and many other parameters are fully configurable.
The control unit is fully equipped with all interfaces: safety loops, CAN bus and RF switches (from N to 1’5/8).The ECRESO N+1 provides powerful control through its intuitive Web based interface and, for local and manual operation, the front panels offer fast and easy access through screens, status LEDs and buttons for manual switching or other actions.
The N+1 system also includes a set of AUDIO/MPX SWITCH equipment (fully managed by the ECRESO N+1) that feeds the correct audio/composite signals to the reserve transmitter.
Based on customer specifications, WorldCast Systems is able to provide turnkey racks comprising:

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.
