Oman-based Entertainment Network Company (ENC), which also owns the Sultanate's first private radio stations, has chosen APT's WorldNet Oslos for its Studio-to-Transmitter links. The units were installed last month.

"The launch of the first private radio stations in the Sultanate of Oman marks a new era in broadcasting and we are committed to ensuring that our programmes are of the highest quality in terms of both content and audio performance," commented Paul Khoueiry, head of engineering at ENC. "As part of these efforts, we met with APT at Cabsat in Dubai and were impressed by what its products could do so we purchased them. The installation was simple and the units were easy to deploy."

WorldNet Oslo is a modular, multiple channel audio multiplexer designed to transport content over various digital networks. By incorporating Enhanced apt-X coding, the unit delivers real-time, near-lossless quality audio on up to 28 channels. "These units have helped ENC position its radio stations as offering high quality audio along with outstanding content. We have already had excellent feedback from our listeners who enjoy the locally-produced programming," claimed Khoueiry.
