Digital silence detection
RB-DSD1: Functioning similarly to the Sonifex RB-SD1 analog silence detection unit, the RB-DSD1 digital silence detection replaces the I/O with AES3, S/PDIF and Toslink inputs and outputs. The unit can switch on loss of level of the main input, on loss of level on one channel of the main input, or on loss of synchronization lock of the main input. Each source is monitored for failure and includes a failure alarm. The RB-DSD1 has two digital stereo audio inputs, each one selectable via front-panel push buttons. The inputs include sample-rate converters. The silence detect level is adjustable between -39dBfs and -84dBfs and from 0 seconds to 252 seconds.
FM scanning receiver
Band Scanner GPS: This is a tool to evaluate FM broadcast band congestion and to log station identification parameters. Band Scanner GPS is a Google Earth-compatible tool for visualization of collected FM Radio measurements. When running any campaign with the Band Scanner GPS, results will be saved in a log file that can be converted into KMZ format for Google Earth. The log file can be exported also as transitional format for future analyze or to keep it in record. The Band Scanner GPS can measure RF level, MPX deviation, left and right audio levels, RBDS and pilot injection levels. The system is powered by the USB port of any Windows PC. Free Windows software sweeps the receiver across the FM band, logging every carrier and generating a spectrum display of carrier level vs. frequency. Spectrum plots may be saved as JPG or BMP files.

Bundled analyzer system
Air Sleuth Pro Bundle V2: The Air Sleuth Pro Bundle V2 combines a software-based 2.4GHz RF spectrum analyzer and a 2.4GHz, 11-channel signal generator. The analyzer allows the user to view Wi-fi channels 1 through 11 individually or simultaneously, with peak, average, and raw trace modes. There are 10 diagnostic modes including Traces, Spectrogram, Channel Time Course, Differential Channels and Pie Charting. Also included is a real-time calculation of Best Wi-fi Channel. There is also a logging and playback recorder for extended monitoring. The bundle also includes Airhorn, a 2.4GHz ISM band signal generator that can be set to generate selective RF signals for any number of the 11 Wi-Fi channels.
IP audio console system
Power Station: Power Station, an all-in-one IP-audio console system, combines analog, digital and microphone I/O, a console power supply, DSP mixing engine and network switch into one easy-to-deploy package. To set up Power Station, connect the studio equipment with standard CAT-5 cables, connect an Element console with just one cable, name the sources with a browser, and it's ready for air. Power Station can be the heart of a standalone studio or part of a larger Axia network. Power Station Simple Networking can daisy-chain up to four Power Stations for a multi-studio installation without a separate core switch.
Audio and video broadcast
Netia Digital Audio
Warehouse Web 2.0: The Warehouse Web Version 2.0 audio and video broadcast and display platform can provide new services and revenue opportunities for Manreo users. It provides companies with a system for centralizing, sharing, and viewing audio, image, and video archives, and broadcasting them across multiple distribution channels. Because Warehouse Web 2.0 has been developed using the REST (Representational State Transfer) architecture and includes XML Web Services, it now offers up to four interfaces, making it more ergonomic and powerful. Warehouse Web's Catalog Interface offers Manreo users a global view of all files and metadata, along with more powerful searches. The Terminology Interface manages the Thesaurus and allows users to add, delete, and modify words and interaction between words. The Media Interface manages the storage of both audio and video files. Using this interface, users can view various files and file format support. Finally, Warehouse Web's Monitoring Interface lets the user track file conversion and publishing workflows to various platforms including mobile phones.
