Broadcasting to underserved audiences
We developed Tinyfm in Qatar, and we’ve sent it to South Africa already. Soon, we’ll be testing it in India. In all of these places, western media organisations struggle to attract an audience, in particular a young one.
Preserving endangered and rare dialects
Some languages are lost because nobody has the chance to listen to them, in addition to not being able to speak them.
Tinyfm’s playlist is controlled by the local community itself. Its tiny spatial range is ideal for a community café or a neighbourhood.
Sending the radio experience to remote places
You only need one Raspberry Pi connected to the internet to push and deliver content to your audience on the airwaves. Obviously, the bigger the antenna, the more distance you’ll cover. Tinyfm’s web interface and control allow you to remotely send content - whether you’re a broadcaster or a member of the community.
