ECRESO FM 1kW - AiO Series

Overview

The Ecreso FM 1kW from the AiO Series is the latest generation of FM transmitters, designed to lower the Total Cost of Ownership.


The new AiO series delivers the highest efficiency on the market. In its standard operations, broadcasters benefit from up to 76% efficiency (AC to RF) and when the patented SmartFM technology is activated, they can further reduce their energy consumption by up to 40%.

The AiO Series also brings together the expertise of APT and Audemat into a compact 2U chassis, resulting in a unique APT IP Decoder and a full RDS encoder.


Additional features such as the direct-to-channel digital modulator and a 5-band sound processor complete this flagship FM transmitter.
