You will be able to listen to our programs via digital Internet streaming and via AM 747.

Is the warm sound of AM radio just old fashioned? Well according to Nautel it is not. In fact, it is hot! The just sold their 2 Megawatt transmitter. But it is not just an analog transmitter, it will transmit digitally in the medium waveband using DRM: Digital Radio Mondeale.

At TU/e we are also foreseeing that we will transmit in a digital format. Moreover we see interesting possibilities to largely improve the AM sound. Are you an EE student at TU/e and are you interested in modern signal processing let us know. We have a nice traineeship opportunity for you.

 

Innovation in Making a Radio Program

PvE 2015

Today’s digital technology provides many opportunities for new ways of making a radio program. The idea is to extensively rely social media, the cloud and studio automation software. The vision is to make presenting a radio show as easy as posting a message on Facebook.

Jean-Paul Linnartz, professor in the Signal Processing Systems group of the faculty of EE started testing this concept in 2015 with a team of former radio colleagues who previously worked with regional broadcasters in the Netherlands and in Belgium. The Meuse-Rhine Euroregion and the Province of Limburg sponsored this to try out innovative ideas for “the inverted Studio”, that is, to run a radio station in the cloud, while the radio team is mainly on the move, uploading their programs or news clips from a pub, from their office, from home, basically from anywhere imaginable. The concept has partly been borrowed from the 3TU (currently 4TU) Education Innovation ambition of an “inverted classroom”, in which teachers spend less time in lecturing but devote more time to interaction.
