LAS VEGAS� Nautel and DaySequerra will cooperation to manage analog/HD delay issues in broadcast transmissions. The companies say that this initiative will employ a DaySequerra algorithm paired with Nautel transmitters through the exporter.
�Proper diversity delay synchronization is critical to a listener�s HD Radio experience,� said David Day, president of DaySequerra.
DaySequerra�s M4.2 TimeLock is intended to receive the AM/FM off-air broadcast, with its algorithm measuring the timing difference between the HD Radio analog and HD-1 program streams with accuracy to one audio sample. Out-of-tolerance conditions are reported via email, rear panel tallies and via its built-in Web server using any browser on a broadcaster�s network. The M4.2 TimeLock unit will stream time corrections to the Nautel Exporter Plus using TCP/IP protocol. Delay adjustments will be implemented in the digital audio chain in the Exporter Plus.
