Launched at NAB 2017 where it was awarded Best of Show by Radio World Magazine, the SOLAR FM is an innovative turnkey transmission system designed to broadcast to areas with limited electrical infrastructure such as remote communities, festivals and events and disaster relief areas.

The addition of a Wind energy option adds even greater flexibility to the already versatile system. Broadcasters can now select from three separate energy sources; solar, wind and AC power and schedule the use of each source to optimize the up-time for broadcast at minimal cost. An optional Energy Pack provides this management capability.

On the receiving side, the SOLAR FM is also very flexible. It can receive audio from a number of different sources such as its inbuilt satellite and FM receivers or analog and AES inputs.  Management and configuration of the system is performed via a dedicated mobile app.

The SOLAR FM and its new Wind Power option will be exhibited on the WorldCast Systems’ Booth N7111 at the NAB Show, Las Vegas from April 9th-12th, 2018.
