ArtSound has joined many other radio stations in Australia in launching a Digital Radio service (DAB+). You can experience the new ArtSound Digital channel by scanning for ArtSound on your DAB+ receiver!
ArtSound is broadcasting DAB+ as a simulcast of its FM stream.
DAB+ digital radio sets are quickly entering the market, and some car radios now have DAB+ capability or have been equipped with FM-to-digital converters.
ArtSound is one of several stations collaborating through the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia to implement DAB+ services.
To facilitate the new service, ArtSound’s Manuka studios have been connected to a high-quality private fibre network that the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia commissioned Telstra to install. This network will stream ArtSound’s service to DAB+ transmission equipment at Black Mountain Tower and enable future program interchange between other similarly equipped stations in capital cities throughout Australia.
The federal government instigated this project and is entirely funding it for its first three years.
