Welcome to Digital Media we provide assistance to the community broadcast industry to successfully plan their setup and technical matters, apply to ICASA and related bodies for relevant service licences where-after we supply and install all the needed broadcast systems.
Community Radio / TV
If you wish to establish a community radio or tv station for your town or district but don’t have the know-how or experience you are welcome to give us a call to assist. Digital Media’s founder Mr. Andre Swartz studied TV, Radio and Industrial Electronics and is involved in radio since 1997. Collectively we have radio broadcast, systems and content development experience of more than 20 years. On occasion we make use of experienced facilitators to give in-house radio training courses, engage radio stations to advance in certain operational areas and develop material as may be needed.
New Radio Stations may want to make use of our basic technical surveys to determine radio signal coverage before even purchasing any equipment. This feature enable stations to get a good technical report of future signal conditions. Once all technical and site planning is done we compile all the licence application documents, these arrive at your door via courier therefore submission ready. Once the licences are issued we provide all the technical equipment that include the studios, rf transmission and outside broadcast facilities.
