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 accessible in Spain, we record it via its official site.
When the online signal is encrypted, it isn't possible for us to record and monitor it. In such a case, as well as if there is no line or poor online emission, we configure the channel on 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 clearly.
- Normally, TV stations are territorially restricted - they emit only in a specific territory and can't be watched outside of it. That's why they are recorded at a unit which, again, must be placed in a location where the channel can emit from. 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 a satellite TV
Our recording units need a direct connection to electricity, antenna, and internet - the latter because the recordings are sent immediately to our platform where we analyse and store them.
The IPTV has recently appeared as a common form of emission of radio and TV channels. In terms of monitoring and recording channels via IPTV, it ends up being easier and faster for us to configure. We need the URL of the channel - sent by your digital provider - which we configure on either a physical or virtual recording unit.
