After a worldwide success with the FMB80 it is time for WorldCast Systems to propose a new RDS encoder full of novelties and innovations. One of the highlights of the Audemat RDS Encoder is the quality and spectral purity of its output signal that is equal if not better than its predecessor. However, to further improve this signal quality we have implemented the MPX on AES in the encoder giving us a purity and quality never achieved in an RDS encoder.
In addition to the basic functions expected of an RDS encoder, the Audemat RDS Encoder now offers great new features that will make it a success at least as great as the FMB80. In a desire for innovation and our expertise in the field of RDS, we worked with the RDS forum to develop today an encoder compatible with RDS2.
This new version of RDS encoder aligns with WorldCast Systems' standards of quality, innovation and customer satisfaction to best meet market demands and deliver the best RDS experience possible
The MPX over AES technic consists to transform the analog MPX/Composite signal to a digital signal sampled at 192kHz with the MPX/Composite signal inside. This new feature will allow our customers to have a full digital broadcast chain from studio to FM transmitter with a perfect signal quality and purity. A wider dynamic range gives the user very low noise and distortion over all MPX bandwidth.
After more than 25 years of RDS the RDS forum today offers a new version of the standard, RDS2 which will significantly increase the bandwidth of the RDS channel. By adding 3 additional subcarriers in the RDS standard, broadcasters will have the possibility tomorrow to send small files such as a station logo or the cover of an album. This feature is part of one of several improvements to the standard, such as a new type of PS that allows UTF8 encoding of desired characters.
The Audemat RDS Encoder is already compatible with the new IEC 62106-1:2018 to IEC 62106-6:2018 standard which includes RD2 compatibility with the possibility to add a lot of new features.
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.
