WorldCast Systems Showcases the Future of FM with RDS2 Demo at NAB

  Apr 12, 2017

Miami, FL- April 12th 2017An established global leader in RDS technology, WorldCast Systems has announced that they will show a groundbreaking demo of new RDS2 technology at NAB 2017. This will be a world-first for RDS2 which has not been previously shown on the international stage.

The new RDS2 standard extends the capabilities and geographical reach of RDS and offers many exciting and enriched new services for a new content-driven generation of audience. 

WorldCast Systems has developed a new RDS encoder that provides support for both existing RDS technology and this new international standard. A prototype of the innovative new unit will be on demo on the WorldCast Systems’ booth alongside an RDS2 data logger and decoder.

Backwards compatible with the existing standard, RDS2 increases the data capacity four-fold which significantly extends the capabilities of the technology, facilitating many added value services and graphical features and also allows deployment to be extended in certain geographic regions such as China and Brazil.   It also permits a long PS name for enhanced station branding.

Product Manager for RDS with WorldCast Systems, Olivier Soulié commented, “With RDS2, the aim is to provide enriched content to the end-user and the possibilities throughout the FM market are very exciting.  We at WorldCast have also been at the forefront of this industry and are delighted to be pioneering development within the new RDS2 standard.”

The RDS2 demo will be on show on the WorldCast Systems’ booth, N8924 at NAB 2017.
