Secular and Christian broadcasting
Milano Ventures and NEXUS-IBA do not discriminate against race, sex, language, or political or religious beliefs. We promote pluralism of information, with particular attention to minorities, and above all ethnic, cultural, political, and religious minorities.
Over IPAR (International Public Acces Radio) we promote news and feature programs in English and any other language that deals with sensitive issues such as freedom of speech or are targeted to regions where freedom of speech is at stake, the Internet may be blocked, and mass communication media censored.
Over European Gospel Radio we promote Christian and religious programs aimed at worldwide evangelism, hosting any preacher, Minister, Church, missionary religious organisation or anyone who has something to say to “preach to the world”.
Over our mainstream streaming channels or via client’s dedicated audio (radio) and video (TV) channels we offer a 24/7 presence accessible anywhere in the world. We use our own WorldDirector cloud, not necessarily controlled by any of the major cloud providers or Governments, running on an independent Content Delivery Network (CDN) with Point of Access servers spread across the entire world.
We think that our offer is a unique opportunity to any broadcaster or program producer to reach any country in the world, without barriers, using Shortwave radio, Satellite, AM or Medium Wave radio and internet streaming, in any possible combination.

On June 15, 1995, NEXUS-International Broadcasting Association was officially approved for association with the Department of Public Information of the United Nations, and for more than 20 years has been actively working in promoting the work and activities of both UN and UNESCO. Researchers at NEXUS-IBA created the first load-balanced cloud and Content Delivery Network (CDN) called WorldDirector, later used by Milano Ventures and their clients in Europe and USA.

Most of Internet and cloud-related services and applications are delivered to end users, fast and reliably over the WorldDirector platform, including streaming audio and video services on behalf of our stations and members.
About the NEXUS term
The NEXUS term was chosen because this Latin word says it all: a link or point of connection, using international media, radio, TV and cloud services to link content providers with their audiences. But NEXUS also stands for more than just a physical connection using a variety of technologies. It also means World communication and promoting freedom of speech around the world. When an individual or an organisation becomes part of NEXUS-IBA, they are part of a dynamic, highly professional and creative team devoted to utilising the latest technologies to deliver their content at the lowest possible cost.
Milano Ventures is proud to be selected NEXUS-IBA’s commercial partner to service their membership, and maintain their cloud and broadcasting infrastructure across all continents.
