OSLO � NEA Radio SA in Norway will soon start DAB transmissions using its own transmitter network in two different regions.� Hardware requirements will be reduced by use of virtualization.�
Paneda has been selected as the provider for the systems, comprising multiplexers, audio encoders and the metadata content system Rapid from All In Media. The complete system will be realized as a cloud solution using VMWare and the server will be hosted by NEA themselves.
The transmitter network will consist of 7 transmitters in the �S�r-Tr�ndelag� region, on channel 11C and will initially have 5 programs on-air. Also, the region �Innherred� will have one transmitter on channel 8B with two programs on-air, according toWorldDAB.org.�
Eivind Engberg, Technical consultant for �Norsk Lokalradioforbund� (Norwegian Local radio community) has been involved with the project and will continue to offer technical assistance and consulting until the network is fully in operation.
