The The Radio Kerry Outside Broadcast Unit is custom designed and built around a 27 foot Iveco chassis. It contains the very latest in digital broadcasting and IP technology which allows us to transmit programmes over PSTN, ISDN and even satellite. It has an internal local area network which means that SMS messages and emails can be sent directly to the presenter in the air-conditioned studio! The unit operates as a fully functional studio with an internal and external PA system and also has a hospitality area for guests.

In addition to it’s commercial, sport, news and current affairs functions the new outside broadcast unit can be used to record programmes and concerts, for special event broadcasting (i.e. from Festivals around Kerry) and it is also available as a pre and post-production facility i.e. editing. The unit is also a potential training vehicle for groups who wish to have a basic knowledge of how a studio operates. It may also be used as a promotional vehicle for sampling purposes.

The OBU will allow for all programmes to be transmitted from venues outside of the main studios in Killarney, Tralee and Cahersiveen. Not all programmes will be available for sponsorship but your local sales executive will give you details of the availability of your preferred programme.
