2wcom FM2TS Gateway Offers MPEG Streaming of 8 FM Channels
The FM2TS concentrates the functionality for handling eight channels into a single device, and it also features 2wcom’s new hardware platform, with support for TS and IP functionalities, including multiple MPTS and SPTS generation, IPv6, HTTPS and SNMPv3.
The FM2TS features a flexible FM tuner concept that includes eight FM Tuner modules (switchable by 8x antenna matrix) with digital output for MPEG encoding. The 19” 1HE unit streams eight MPEG encoded channels to transport streams (MPTS/SPTS) via IP (RTP, UDP Unicast/Multicast) or ASI. Multiple redundant TS outputs (2 IP ports, 2 ASI ports) can be freely programmed and recombined.
The FM2TS combines high signal immunity (up to 120dBμV RF) input, advanced FM capabilities including programmable FM tuner parameters such as soft mute and stereo-to-mono blending, with RDS data forwarding and robust IP performance due to Pro MPEG forward error correction.
The gateway features built-in monitoring of FM quality parameters and RDS signal parameters (PI, PS) and alarm reporting via email, SNMP, Web interface or activation of relay contacts. Audio live streaming for monitoring purposes is provided in MPEG 1/2, AAC-LC/LD and HE-AAC formats via IP ports or ASI. These features make the unit ideal for monitoring FM transmitters, especially when run by external facilities, and provide a way for supervisory authorities to control the quality of their providers.
The FM2TS handles RDS parameters including TMC and RT+ messages, and converts them into V. 6.+ compliant UECP for each channel for RDS forwarding applications.
2wcom manufactures and supplies professional broadcast products for FM, RDS, DAB, DAB+, DVB-S, DVB-S2 and DVB-T, with end-to-end DVB-S/S2 Audio/IP Satellite system solutions.
