Audemat DAB Probe, New Version Now Available
An effective QoS monitoring solution, available with a host of new features
WorldCast Systems, a leading supplier of advanced broadcast solutions for customers across the globe, announces a new version of its Audemat DAB Probe. Audemat DAB Probe is the company’s unique product for monitoring DAB, DAB+ and DMB radio applications.
Designed to monitor DAB signal quality and service continuity, at the transmitter site or in a coverage area, the Audemat DAB Probe enables remote monitoring of a set list of channels and allows users to verify the conformity of their DAB network with both legislation and their broadcasting needs.
Installed in SFN or MFN 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 or ETI recording, and more. Also designed for optimal monitoring of the user experience (QoE), Audemat DAB Probe includes visual slide-shows, Dynamic Label and Services (DLS) display to enable users to hear and see in real-time the same content as their audience of listeners.
“We developed this solution to meet the needs of the growing DAB market. Amongst other monitoring solutions available today, our product stands out as a complete solution, packed with rich features, at a very competitive cost.” explains Philippe Missoud, Product Manager at WorldCast Systems.
Recently enhanced to continuously meet customer needs, Audemat DAB Probe now includes the following important improvements:
- Decoding of FIG tables for a more detailed analysis of the streaming content received
- Display of real audio and PAD bit rates so broadcasters can visualize the real audio quality and have the possibility to listen to radio remotely using native codecs (MP2 or AAC+) or with an MP3 compression of 8kbps to 320 kbps
- Optional card for ETI output now available for a connection to analysis equipment or recordings
- Management of telemetry inputs/outputs to monitor and control the on-site measurement equipment or probes
This new and improved Audemat DAB Probe is now available for shipping.
