The FM Receiver Silver is a professional FM Rebroadcaster capable of receiving a signal in difficult circumstances and generating an MPX baseband or audio signal output which can be used for high quality retransmission by any make of transmitter. This enables a broadcaster to provide complete coverage in shadow areas, tunnels and other “hard to reach” areas.

The Ecreso FM Transmitter range also features an integrated multi-band sound processor! This fully digital sound processor offers the highest signal quality and outstanding reliability as no additional hardware is required.
You can choose from a wide-band or a multi-band version to achieve the level of processing required at your site and the processor is supplied with a full set of presets for many different formats and requirements.
Sound Processor interface
Automatic Gain Control
The first stage of the processor is an automatic gain control which regulates the perceived volume level of the station output across all audio sources and formats. It uses predictive algorithms and protects against unwelcome increases in noise.
Equalization, Bass and Treble Enhancers
The AGC is followed by enhancers which embellish both the low and high frequencies. Combined with 3 parametric equalizers, they enable the creation of a distinct sonic signature.
Stereo Enhancer and Limiter
A stereo enhancer can be used to improve the stereo image of your station when using non-mono content. It also includes a stereo limiter to improve the quality of your station in areas with problematic coverage.
5 Band Processor
The 5 Band Processor dynamically adjusts the gain of each audio band. Depending on the selected preset, it can work as a slow and purist multi-band leveler, or as a fuller processor to create a strong sonic signature. The fidelity parameter enables you to fine tune the bands according to your preference; from a purist sound to a more colored texture.
5 band Limiters
5 limiters have been designed to facilitate the work of the final clipper. For soft formats, the limiters provide smooth protection for your final audio and for commercial stations, they can be used to create extra loudness.
This section uses several limiters including HF and final low distortion limiters. In addition, and independently of any preset, the ECRESO FM Transmitter can be configured with an MPX Power Limiter and a deviation Hard Clipper for transmitter protection.

To provide broadcast engineers with complete peace of mind, the FM Receiver Silver will monitor RF levels and MPX deviation to establish the presence of a suitable signal and display the current status via the LED front panel. The presence of Pilot and RDS signals are also monitored and the PI code can be decoded to ensure correct program tuning. Level meters offer a visualization of the current level of audio activity.
Compatible with all makes of FM transmitters, the FM Receiver Silver also provides a double MPX output so it can also be used in conjunction with 1+1 or Dual Drive transmitter systems. Thanks to its IP/IO features, the unit offers contact closures (GPIO) and a TCP/IP connection for remote configuration and SNMP management.
«Our FM Receiver Silver provides broadcasters with the ability to ensure that, whatever the terrain, their station stays on air for all target listeners and offers the highest possible quality sound.»
