About Soelberg Broadcast & IT Consult ApS
About the company

Soelberg Broadcast & IT Consult is a small consulting company based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Most of the activities take place in Denmark, so most of the information on this website is in Danish, with some exceptions that will be linked to below.
Since 2006, the primary company focus has been on Newsroom systems, Media Asset Management (MAM) and optimizing workflows in news production (radio and TV).

The company history starts with studio construction and computer automation for radio.
During the last 25 years, Pierre Soelberg has been involved in developing the private radio industry in Denmark, starting from small community stations in the 80's to national network in 2003, mostly as technical manager or consultant at various stations.
Due to special legislation conditions, Denmark was one of the first countries to switch to computer automated broadcasting in the 90's, where Dalet was the system chosen by most stations. This called for some advanced solutions w.r.t. localized versions of national broadcasting.
The company was founded in 1998 to help clients use IT for broadcasting. Broadcasting is what we want to do, and IT is a tool that can help us do it. This is why the word "Broadcast" comes first in "Broadcast-it.com".
You can also read the articles about redundancy. This should give a fair idea about how this company operates, how problems are analyzed and the solutions that could be proposed to a client.
This website also contains a section with tips and scripts for DaletPlus - feel free to use what you want, but read the disclaimer first.

Single Frequency Networks

A Special field is Single Frequency Networks for FM-Radio. A test re-planning is taking place in Denmark, and for that reason, a series of tests were carried out. This resulted in a report and a Paper presented at the 120th AES Convention in Paris in 2006.
The paper is available for download here.
During this, a small toolbox for calculating coverage for FM-Radio according to ITU 1546 using Matlab was developped. It is available here.
