WorldCast Systems has announced a new innovation with SmartFM, the first Artificial Intelligence dedicated to FM radio broadcasting.

The result of three years of R&D along with field testing and measurement at on-air stations, this patented technology brings FM radio broadcasting to higher levels of performance and efficiency. SmartFM is engineered to enhance the listening experience, lower energy costs by 10 to 40%, and limit the impact of FM broadcasting on the environment with lower CO2 emissions.

"We are very excited about revealing SmartFM to the market after intensive research led by our industry's experts in radio transmitters! This technology transforms the broadcasting of FM radio, on-air results are unrivalled, and mostly, we can't wait for our customers to benefit from major energy savings. The future-ready design of our Ecreso FM transmitters enables even our older models to be enhanced with this Artificial Intelligence", Gregory Mercier, Product Marketing Director at WorldCast Systems.

SmartFM is the result of WorldCast Systems expertise in FM broadcasting, signal processing, and field measurement. With its Ecreso brand, WorldCast Systems has over 60 years of experience in designing low, medium, and high-power FM transmitters and has equipped approximately 10,000 sites worldwide.
