LPON and HPON services are cost effective ways to enter the Australian Radio Market. Often operators possess the necessary skills to get the service operating themselves, only relying on us for example for transmitters and other equipment. We are however also able to offer a turn key solution for operators who may not possess the necessary technical skills or would rather have the service setup for them for fixed leasing fees. As any successful operator will know their is a lot more to actually getting an LPON or HPON to air than just getting together the equipment, for example you will need to deal extensively with the ACMA and complex engineering issues. The services are varied and flexible depending upon your license and its requirements and take into account all of the things involved in getting the service to air. Where you do not already have a license we can even apply for one for you, or organize for you to buy or lease an existing one. ABM through Ausradiosearch offer a turn key solution for LPON, HPON and small Community Radio services. They do all the work, They supply Everything you just send your audio signal from your studio into the supplied encoder which sends the signal digitally to their data centre using your normal ADSL connection. The signal is reliably delivered in CD quality to site through ABM’s Australia-wide broadcast network infrastructure and goes to air (They even monitor the radio signal locally for “dead air” for you). You pay only for fixed one-off setup costs then low monthly lease fees. Because there are so many different possibilities it is often best to email us above for a quotation specifying your precise requirements.
