Small-scale DAB network - United Kingdom
Small-scale DAB is an innovative technology that provides a low-cost route to digital broadcasting for local commercial, community and specialist radio stations.
With open source software, it is possible to simplify the transmission infrastructure by using a single transmission site with all the encoding/multiplexing/modulation happening on a PC and using internet streams as the audio source.
Almost all small-scale DAB transmissions operate using open source software maintained by opendigitalradio.org.
Here's a dual perspective from community broadcaster Ash Elford and network operator David Duffy on how small-scale DAB is helping community and local broadcasters in the UK reach their audience.
