Broadcast — derived from the words “wide” and “pour”, broadcasting means the transmission of information, whether audio, video or data, to a wide audience using electronic mass media. Unlike narrowly focused broadcasting, which is focused on a specific segment, broadcasting strives to reach as large an audience as possible.

Broadcasting facilities

Radio. The earliest form of broadcasting, radio uses the airwaves to transmit audio content to a wide range of listeners.

Television. Having revolutionized the field of visual content, television broadcasts audio and video materials to households around the world.

The Internet. Modern broadcasting has entered the digital age, and platforms such as podcasts, webcasts and streaming services are reaching a global audience.

Broadcasting and narrowcasting

Coverage. While broadcasting is aimed at the widest audience, narrowly focused broadcasting is focused on a specific niche or a specific group.

Content. The content of the broadcast is general in nature and is intended for a mass audience. Narrow broadcast content is targeted at specific interests or demographic groups.

Examples. National news channels often go on the air, while a webinar on a specialized topic can be narrowly focused.

Dissemination of information. Broadcasting plays a key role in the dissemination of news and information.
