Tieline Will Bring MPX Codecs to the IBC Show

They deliver FM-MPX or MicroMPX signals to transmitter sites

Tieline will exhibit at the IBC Show and feature its new MPX I and MPX II codecs.

They deliver composite FM multiplex codec solutions for real-time network distribution of FM-MPX or MicroMPX (µMPX) signals to transmitter sites.

“The MPX I is ideal for transmitting a composite STL signal from a single station with return monitoring, whereas the Tieline MPX II can transport two discrete composite FM-MPX signals from the studio to transmitters with return monitoring,” the company says.

Both units support analog MPX on BNC, MPX over AES192, and multipoint signal distribution, to deliver a range of flexible composite encoder and decoder solutions for various applications.

The MPX I and MPX II support sending the full uncompressed FM signal, or high-quality compressed µMPX at much lower bit-rates. An optional satellite tuner card with MPEG-TS and MPE support can receive DVB-S or DVB-S2 signals.

Charlie Gawley, VP Sales APAC & EMEA, said, “By supporting both analog and digital composite MPX signals, broadcasters can transition from analog to digital exciters over time and maximize the value of their MPX investment.”

Sending transmission-ready FM composite signals from the studio allows broadcasters to maintain audio processing and RDS data insertion at the studio. This reduces capital and operational costs by eliminating processing equipment from transmitter sites, which reduces on-site power consumption, wiring and site visits.

Composite MPX over IP signals can be replicated and distributed using multicast and multi-unicast technologies and take advantage of redundancy features like redundant streaming, RIST, FEC and automated SD card file failover.

IBC Stand: 8.F81
