Description

Fully Featured RDS Encoder. The Audessence RDS PRO Series are fully featured, reliable RDS (Radio Data System) / RBDS (Radio Broadcast Data System) encoders. Tired of endless trouble with an existing low-cost RDS encoder? Difficult-to-use, unreliable software, unacceptable interference to your stereo audio, or missing RDS features like EON ? You can solve all these problems and save money at the same time with an RDS PRO! Now supports basic UECP (Universal Encoder Control Protocol) control for revenue-generating applications like dynamic traffic applications (TMC) and song tagging (RT+)

Features:

  • A properly designed and implemented RDS solution for FM broadcasters
  • Switchable MPX (Composite) loop-through mode
  • Maintains programme reliability in loop mode - automatic MPX 'pass-through' relays
  • RS-232 & USB control based on simple ASCII commands or basic UECP implementation
  • Powerful Windows based configuration utility for easy initial setup
  • All user adjustments accessible from front/rear panel - no need to take the lid off
  • Addressing - independent or common control of up to 255 units in a network
  • Advanced weekly scheduling in Stand-Alone and PC-Dependent modes
  • Define up to 99 different messages or link to an automation system
  • Internal real-time clock with battery backup for correctly inserted clock-time facility
  • External contact closure TA switch
  • No special 19 kHz input needed - pilot tone recovered from the MPX signal
  • Four modes of Dynamic / 'Scrolling' PS (where legal)

BENEFITS:

  • VERY cost effective
  • Making life easier for broadcast professionals: quick and easy hardware integration
  • Save time with intuitive, well-developed programming software
  • Don't miss out: feature set includes every RDS function most stations will need

APPLICATIONS:

  • RDS / RBDS encoding for stations of all sizes (includes EON)
  • Network Radio
  • Local Commercial Radio
  • Community Radio
  • RSLs
