Ambassador Celebrates 5th Birthday of Amb-OS “Delivery”

Ambassador AdvertisingFive years have passed since the Amb-OS system was birthed, altering the landscape of delivery technology for radio stations across the country. 

A collaborative effort led by Ambassador Advertising Agency, Amb-OS is a highly sophisticated Satellite-delivered File Transfer (SFT) platform through which files are transmitted once and captured on the receiver end. The system’s name was derived from the Greek word “ambos,” which was the name for the raised pulpit from which the Gospels and Epistles were read in early Christian churches.

In August 2009, Amb-OS was deployed worldwide for use in any country with Internet access. With more than 94% of Americans being reached via radio on a weekly basis, programmers internationally now utilize the delivery system to reach local communities nearly anywhere on the globe.

“It’s hard to believe five years ago we shipped the first Amb-OS AMR-100 receivers,” recalled Jim Sanders, Ambassador’s Executive Vice President, during a recent gathering of the Amb-OS technical team at Ambassador’s headquarters in Irvine, CA.

“I’m grateful to the Lord for a superb support team of engineers and really smart friends to make it work,” he added.

For more than five decades, Ambassador Advertising Agency has worked hand-in-hand with Christian media ministries to ensure good stewardship, expert production, and comprehensive outreach to their constituencies. Today, its staff of committed individuals serves more than 20 media ministries and publishing organizations.
