Audemat’s FMB50 RDS encoder has been designed specifically for radio stations and broadcasters who wish to engage listeners with a RT/PS scrolling experience or to exploit the interactive functionality offered by RT+.
Based on the same solid hardware as the best-selling FMB80 with its unrivalled reputation for reliability, quality and functionality, the new FMB50 is available at a highly affordable price point and can be easily upgraded should you require more extensive functionality in the future.
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.
Connect to your automation software for automatic display of song titles, artist names and more (if permitted).
