HD Radio Implementation: Published in cooperation with the Society of Broadcast Engineers, this book offers a hands-on approach to HD Radio implementation. It covers the elements of the radio station signal chain that need to be upgraded or modified to better accommodate the needs of the transmission system.
Smart Switch: Smart Switch panels interface with Axia's Pathfinder PC router control software to provide on-air hosts, guests and producers with one-touch activation of router salvos, studio switching operations, audio equipment control, custom intercom functions and more. These panels are 1RU devices available in either 9- or 17-button configurations. They contain back-lit, dynamic LCD displays, and are designed for convenient placement next to host or guest mic positions. Smart Switch panels connect to Axia networks via Ethernet.
Worldcast Horizon HD: The Worldcast Horizon HD is a duplex stereo codec that enables broadcasters to deliver FM and HD content from studio to transmitter site. With both a T1 and ethernet interface, broadcasters can utilize existing T1 links for the FM transport and send their HD content as a UDP stream embedded in the T1 link, eliminating the need for additional bandwidth and cost. At the remote/transmitter link, the HD content is presented back on an IP port. As a fully duplex device, WorldCast Horizon HD allows off-air monitoring or an independent channel to backhaul RPU feeds and satellite down-linked audio. An RS-232 port is available for PAD and contact closures for remote control.
SP495 Sound Pro-EX: The SP495 Sound Pro-Extreme is an update to the SP495 Sound Pro. Improvements include a 1/30th octave FFT analyzer, doubling the ETG resolution, an early decay time (EDT) measurement, noise criterion curves overlay on the RTA, improved speech intelligibility STIPA with memory to store test results, improved multi-band decay test performance with memory to store test results, the addition of noise criteria computation per-band, 140V and 200V computation to the impedance meter and LEQ measurements to the TDA. New functions include the auto home theater (Auto HT), auto time delay, macro, card memory logger, and clear memories/macro functions.
ARC Plus Mobile Web Connectivity: Burk Technology has added mobile Web connectivity to the ARC Plus broadcast facility control system. The ARC Plus now allows remote access via Web-enabled cell phones and PDAs, including Treos, Iphones, Pocket PCs and more. Virtually any device with Web access can now monitor transmitter readings and allow remote operators to review alarms, issue commands and run macros without a PC.
