The Audemat DAB Probe is a complete DAB radio monitoring solution to perform advanced signal analysis, on-site and of broadcast coverage area.
Designed to be installed in MFN or SFN networks (Single or Multiple Frequency Networks), the Audemat DAB Probe is feature-packed with a user-friendly web interface, alarm notification by email or SNMP traps, and is equipped with telemetry board (via ScriptEasy) and audio output connectors. The advanced software tools provide a deep signal and content analysis with impulse response representation, TII, audio streaming, ETI recording, and more. Also designed for optimal monitoring of the user experience, Audemat DAB Probe includes visual slide-shows, DLS and services display to enable users to hear and see in real-time the same content as their audience of listeners.
Audemat DAB Probe is the result of the company’s 25 years of expertise developing analog and digital signal monitoring solutions for radio & TV. The Audemat range is recognized worldwide for its level of quality, accuracy, and reliability.
Time & Operational Cost Saving
Users benefit from standard tools to remotely control the quality of their DAB broadcast as well as the good operating conditions of their facility.
Comprehensive & Scalable Platform
Designed to meet market needs after extensive customer feedback, Audemat DAB Probe is a feature-rich hardware platform that is ready for optimal performance of monitoring, measurement, and analysis. Highly scalable, it can be enhanced with new software versions or options through a simple, remote upgrade.
A quick DAB band scan is available to visualize the DAB spectrum. It also can be used to facilitate the monitoring configuration.
To detect any failure or variation, the decoding of the TII enable transmitter identification and transmitter peaks (up to 5) to be evaluated by time and levels.
In addition to decoding of the FIG tables, the details of each service are clearly displayed including the real audio and PAD bitrates.
Several user accounts can be created with personal access levels and rights. Depending on the user access level and rights configuration, an alarm notification can be sent to 1 or several users, by E-mail or SNMP, to the network management system(s).
The unit stores the RF measurements over 3 sliding months in the µSD card provided in standard. The graphical representation allows the identification of trends. The 10000 last events including the alarms can also be consulted and filters are possible to find out relevant information.
This data can be exported in CSV file format.
Following an alarm, on-air verification is possible. Users can remotely stream the audio, in compressed or in native format, and visual the associated DSL and MOT (slide).
ScriptEasy is the revolutionary facility control software developed by WorldCast Systems to give users the power and flexibility to create “Smart” sites; ones that can automatically take action to correct any critical errors that affect operations.
Featuring an intuitive Graphic User Interface (GUI), ScriptEasy incorporates GPIO functions, serial communications, logic operators, live user inputs, timers and more. This allows the site operations to be “scripted”, to allow evaluation of multiple parameters and even automatically engage backup systems, while simultaneously alerting relevant technical personnel.
The WorldCast Manager simplifies the management of all SNMP-enabled devices in a network, providing real-time status, historical data and visualization of multiple devices from a single screen. The intuitive and simple-to-use interface shows all devices located at your site(s) displaying product information, alerting you to any alarms and providing one-click access to the unit’s web-based control interface.
The WorldCast Manager is compatible with all WorldCast Systems’ equipment as well as SNMP devices from ANY manufacturer.
