Cincinnati - May 2, 2008 - At the 2008 NAB Show, Harris introduced a new feature to its Flexstar HDX-FM exciter. This Host Audio Extraction feature is an embedded audio extractor that allows broadcasteres to extract analog program audio out of the STL transport stream at the exciter and send it directly to the analog FM transmitter. The process eliminates the need for a separate analog-only audio path from the studio to transmitter, preserving bandwidth and reducing the costs and complexity of audio transport by encoding both the analog and HD Radio program streams within the same bitstream, and transporting each stream over a single STL connection to the transmission site.
