Modulation monitor for HD Radio
M2HDSP: The M2HDSP, Day Sequerra's newest modulation monitor for HD Radio employs the company's recently developed digital signal processing (DSP) architecture, first introduced in its M4DDM. The M2HDSP runs Day Sequerra's new proprietary Time Lock algorithm to automatically maintain perfect alignment of the HD Radio main program signal (MPS) analog and HD-1 digital audio. Using its selective off-air tuner, the M2HDSP measures the MPS analog and HD-1 digital audio diversity and generates a continuous stream of correction vectors to keep the analog and digital audio perfectly time and level aligned. These correction vectors are then sent via Ethernet to an HD Radio embedded exporter or compatible audio processor to provide the necessary adjustments to the analog audio delay.
Enhanced HD Radio importer
Importer Plus: Importer Plus can be used by broadcasters to add up to two additional programming channels and other supplemental audio and data services to Nautel's HD Radio transmission. It codes the secondary program services of an IBOC transmission including digital channels two and three. A user interface permits the selection of IBOC service modes and partitioning of IBOC signal bandwidth for a variety of audio and data services including multicasting. The Importer Plus is housed in a 1RU enclosure and is the first implementation of an HD Radio Importer to use solid-state storage instead of a traditional hard drive.
Console control surface
Sideboard: Wheatstone's Sideboard is for edit booths, voice tracking and hands-on hosts. A true console control surface, it integrates with the Wheatstone Wheatnet-IP audio-over-IP system. Sideboard's input fader strips can access any source in the entire network, with dial-up and talkback on every fader. An additional four-bank fader module can be added for a complete eight-fader mixer. Two output buses -- PGM and AUX -- allow for simultaneous audio-to-air and cue/mix-minus. Eight programmable pushbuttons can be used for quick monitor select or to trigger virtually any system operation.
Bric Remote Control: Bric Remote Control software controls multiple Access and Bric-Link codecs from a simple Windows-based interface. It allows creation of an address book that can be shared among a list of codecs. The software also creates unified connection profiles that can be shared among the codecs. Bric Remote Control software is available as a free download from the Comrex website.
Aqonda: In essence, a remotely-controllable Ether Sound stagebox, Aqonda is capable of transforming up to 16 analog audio signals into as many Ethersound channels, and injecting them into an Ethersound network. The device is available in two formats: Aqonda-8 which is 8-in/8-out, and Aqonda-16 which is the 16-in/16-out version. The inputs are switchable between microphone and line level. The preamps may be remotely controlled from any digital console with Ethersound compatibility. Finally, Aqonda is the very first device to be compatible with both ES-100 and ES-Giga. A switch located on the unit allows users to select which protocol they wish to use.
