CISM-FM, the official campus radio station of the Université de Montréal, is run by student volunteers. Broadcasted on 89.3 FM, it serves audiences in Montréal and its outlying regions, as well as audiences around the world through online streaming. CISM broadcasts content in French, and with a broadcasting radius of 70 km, it is now the world's largest French-language college radio station.

In summer of 2017, the technical team at CISM contacted Applied Electronics with the requirement to upgrade their radio broadcast studio with a new transmitter. Applied Electronics retrofitted the existing system with a new WorldCast ECRESO FM Exciter/Transmitter, which is designed to offer an innovative and highly reliable solution for low power transmission.

With the first Worldcast Ecreso exciter/transmittered integrated into a radio studio in Montréal, the newly upgraded facility broadcasted live to air in November 2017 without a hitch.

CISM's technical team is delighted with the outcome of the project and plan to also convert its MPX signal over IP, so that they can use the Telos Alliance OmniaSST software processor, which Applied Electronics also supplied and integrated into the radio studio.

"The installation was flawless, and any communication between the Ecreso transmitter with the amp works perfectly," said Gabriel Meunier, Technical Director at CISM 89.3 FM. "The quality of the sound has improved and is significantly clearer than that of our former exciter/transmitter. We are very happy, and all is going very well. Thank you to Applied Electronics for your support and your advice."
