The broadcast of the same program simultaneously over two or more different systems or channels, such as in HDTV and in NTSC. CRTC regulations require today that broadcasters simulcast much of their schedules.
Transmitting the same information over more than one radio frequency at a time. Orleans County uses this term to refer to their patching of the trunked radio system to their low band fire dispatch channel.
A wide-area trunked system configuration that uses multiple transmitter and receiver sites to extend coverage of the system. All the corresponding channel numbers at all the sites uses the same frequency.
Distribute radio (or TV) content through more than one outlet at the same time. Originally applied to radio stations which broadcast identical content simultaneously on more than one frequency (e.g. on FM and AM), it is now applied to analogue or digital broadcasts which are simultaneously webcast.
The broadcast of programming over two separate channels or forms of media at the same time. For example, during the transition period (at least through 2006), WCET will often simulcast Channel 48 programming on Channel 34. Of course if the program is in HDTV, the Channel 34 program content will be the same but the picture and sound of much higher quality.
The broadcast of the same program simultaneously over two or more different systems or channels. An accelerated amount of simulcasting of both analog and digital programming will be required by FCC rules, during the DTV transition period.
the broadcast of programming over two separate channels or forms of media at the same time. For example, during the transition period (at least through 2006), KET will simulcast both analog and digital signals.
A signaling technique that broadcasts the same signal over multiple sites in a network with precise control over frequency, phase (timing), and amplitude to avoid signal cancellation in the overlap areas. This is one of the reasons that paging systems penetrate into buildings and offer seamless coverage better than other methods of transmission which only use one site at a time.
To broadcast the same program over two different transmission systems at the same time. Currently, some AM and FM radio stations simulcast the same program for part of the day. The FCC plans to have mandatory simulcast of DTV programming over the current television system. This requirement, which is intended to protect the public interest, should reduce the possibility of two types or quality levels in programming.
Live audiovisual electronic signals emanating from a race meeting and transmitted simultaneously with the running of the racing events at the meeting, and includes the transmission of pari-mutuel wagering odds, amounts wagered and payoff on such events, and other programming relating to the race animals or participants.
Simultaneous transmission of an identical programme or service using two or more standards or transmission media. Used to refer to a technique pioneered by EUTELSAT for transmitting one broadcast analogue FM television carrier and one digital television carrier in a single satellite transponder that would normally only support the FM TV carrier.
To broadcast the same program over two different transmission systems at the same time. Currently, some AM and FM radio stations simulcast the same program for part of the day. The FCC plans to have mandatory simulcast of analog programming over the new DTV system. This requirement should speed the transition to DTV.
Two broadcast stations carrying the same program at the same time. Simultaneous program substitution Cable replacement of American identification and commercials with Canadian where the U.S. and Canadian stations are telecasting the same episode of a program at the same time.
The process of simultaneously broadcasting on two different channels, aka paths. When it comes to DTV, this means the station is most likely broadcasting the same thing in standard definition format and in a DTV format.
Simulcast is a contraction of "simultaneous broadcast", and refers to programs or events broadcast across more than one medium, or more than one service on the same medium, at the same time. For example, Virgin Radio is simulcast on both AM and on satellite radio, and the BBC's Prom concerts are often simulcast on both BBC Radio 3 and BBC Television. Another application is the transmission of the original-language soundtrack of movies or TV series over radio, with the television broadcast having been dubbed into a local language.
