We record thousands of radio and TV channels from all over the world. Based on the specific protocol of emission, we record them in one of the following ways:
Via their online emission
Via a recording unit
Via IPTV (Internet Protocol Television)
When do we use each method?
Whenever a channel emits its program online and it is available in Spain, we record it via the official website emission.
When the online signal is encrypted, it isn't possible for us to record and monitor it. In this case, as well as if there’s no or poor online emission, we configure the channel in a physical recording unit.
- If the channel is a radio station, the unit must be connected to an AM/FM antenna to capture the signal. Therefore, it must be placed in a location where you can listen to the radio without any interference.
- Normally, TV stations are territorially restricted - they emit only in a specific territory and can't be watched elsewhere. For that reason, they are recorded in a unit which must be placed in the location where the channel can be emitted. According to the TV specifications in the territory, we need one of the following to be connected to our unit:
an antenna - if it's free TV
a decoder - if the TV is encrypted
a satellite dish - if it's satellite TV
Our recording units must have a direct connection to the electricity, an antenna, and internet - the latter because the recordings are sent constantly to our platform where we analyse and store them.
The IPTV is a way radio and TV channels can emit their programmes. In terms of monitoring and recording channels via IPTV, it is easier and faster for us to configure this way. We need the URL of the channel - ask your digital provider for it - which we configure on either a physical or a virtual recording unit.
