Both products provide technology in accordance with German standardisation and have been adapted to the broadcasters' specific needs. The FM SFD-IP Rebroadcast receivers and DMM-IP, Digital Stereo Encoders will be deployed across the entire SWR radio network and will be the backbone of analogue FM transmission for the network.
Ron Clifton, IDC President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are very pleased with this new order from SWR. They have chosen the PROFline product because of our long term relationship, continued commitment to product development and our outstanding technical support. This is a very important win for our European team as we continue to demonstrate our leadership in this market."
Berry Eskes, PROFline's Director of Marketing and Sales, said: "I am pleased and very proud to have won this contract. SWR is known for their demanding standards for high quality audio performance and equipment reliability."
