Folder Media has project managed the launch of eight DAB Digital Radio multiplexes on behalf of MuxCo.
It negotiated the transmission contracts with technical operators Arqiva and VDL, decided on the best transmitter locations and liaised with Ofcom. It also identified potential service providers, negotiated carriage agreements and arranged the installation of technical equipment.
For each multiplex launch it worked with Digital Radio UK to arrange events in location and helped stations with DAB marketing activity.
Post-launch, the day to day operation of the multiplexes are managed by the Folder team, led by Nicky Tate. Nicky and the team also manage the day to day operations of UTV’s multiplex network.
