You know this situation: You're broadcasting a sports event, you're in a commercial break and the game restarts, so your listeners miss the opening minutes - or - you're broadcasting a feed from an election count centre, but another centre starts returning at the same time:

You need the Audio Time Manager from 25-Seven Systems.

A recorded programme is 59 minutes long but you've only got 57:50 in that hour for it -

You need the Program Length Manager from 25-Seven Systems.

You're concerned about risks of litigation when broadcasting live phone calls - and simple profanity delay units just aren't clever enough:

You need the Program Delay Manager from 25-Seven Systems.

Imagine being able to delay the start of a live event but still have it end on time!

FM stations are having to compete more and more with high-quality digital platforms like DAB and Internet-delivered radio. These media do not suffer the challenges of pre-emphasis, so to address this, world broadcast-processing leaders Orban have released two new products - the Optimod-FM 8600 and the Optimod-FM 5500.

Dramatically improved peak limiter technology decreases distortion while increasing transient punch and high frequency power handling capacity. Compared to the FM-channel peak limiter in the Optimod-FM 8500, the new peak limiter typically provides 2.5 to 3dB more power at high frequencies, which minimises audible HF loss. Drums and percussion cut through the mix. Highs are airy, and "problem material" that used to cause audible distortion is handled cleanly.

Along with the Optimod-FM 8600, the new Optimod-FM 5500 - which puts coveted five band and two band processing into a single rack unit and brings it to you at the most competitive price ever - Orban's place as the acknowledged world leader in broadcast audio processing is secured for the future.

TOTAL BROADCAST CONSULTANTS builds studios for Radio Nova!

Total Broadcast Consultants is pleased to be playing a vital role in welcoming Dublin's brand new Classic Rock station, Radio Nova, onto the air. We designed, supplied and are currently constructing the new state of the art studios, located near the new Point Village and Convention Centre developments in Dublin city, to the highest of standards.



Total Broadcast Consultants, based in Waterford, Ireland, is the first independent company to broadcast DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) in Ireland.

Operating under a Test and Trial licence from ComReg, the TOTAL-DAB multiplex, on channel 9B, is carrying feeds from several Irish terrestrial broadcasters.

Uniquely, DAB+ is also on air on the same multiplex.

The trials are designed to allow Total Broadcast Consultants to develop a cost-effective method of broadcasting DAB and DAB+, and to evaluate the various formats and parameters used in the medium, in advance of the expected roll-out of commercial DAB and DAB+ across the country.

The pioneering transmissions are broadcast from a high site operated by Total Broadcast Consultants, covering counties Wexford, Carlow, Kilkenny, and east Waterford.

TOTAL BROADCAST CONSULTANTS builds Ireland's FIRST all-IP-Audio station!

We've done it again, another milestone! The new Midlands and North-East of Ireland regional station i105-107 is the first station in Ireland to use the new IP-based Axia mixing console and routing system. We're really leading the way here - this system will certainly become the industry standard, making obsolete not only analogue systems but also the plethora of proprietary, non-standard TDM router-based digital systems - with their inherent problems of limited expandability, single points of failure, costly installation and limited functionality.

Ireland is once again leading the pack - in the UK no FM station has yet to make the transition to IP mixing and routing, but the big groups there are watching with envious eyes. Over 1,000 studios worldwide have embraced this technology, with all users now wondering why anyone would do anything else.

TOTAL BROADCAST CONSULTANTS builds the country's FIRST all-digital radio station!

i102-104 is the country's newest and most innovative regional station. Based in Galway, it broadcasts to the entire north-west of Ireland from Galway.

i102-104 launched on the 7th of February 2008, broadcasting programmes aimed at a youth audience. The studio and transmissions were designed by us to be all-digital - which means that from the audio sources all the way through the airchain to the transmitters, the signals are carried in the digital domain.

No other station is the country has yet done this - it means absolutely optimum quality and that the station is completely future-proof.

TIPP-FM moves to brand new broadcast centre!

In November 2007, Total Broadcast Consultants completed the installation of Tipp-fm's new broadcast facility in Clonmel. Comprising five studios, it has brought the sucessful legacy station right up to date.

Tipp-fm's new broadcast centre is bright and spacious, the studios comfortable and great to work in, and the audio and transmission chain is of excellent quality.
