Open Broadcast is Switzerlands first «user generated» radio, broadcasting, what the Community produces on the online platform.
From now on, there’s nothing in the way of broadcasting your programme via DAB digital radio. Digris AG who is managing, among others, Open Broadcast, is to obtain the required broadcast concession from the Federal Office of Communications (OFKOM). Digris AG and Opendigitalradio have worked out the concept for local digital radio broadcast in close collaboration with the radio associations Unikom and Asrok/Svokr.
Up until now, cost considerations have prevented smaller event organisers from broadcast digitally as well. For its DAB distribution, Digris AG is using a new, software-supported technology at significantly lower cost and which is particularly well suited to smaller coverage areas. The software solution was developed by Opendigitalradio. In a first step, the first antennas are to be erected in Geneva and Zurich. Overall completion in Switzerland is expected to be reached by the end of 2015.
