APT, Smarts Note Turnkey Project for KPVL

In Iowa, Smarts Broadcasting has completed installation of an apt-X Smartcaster digital automation system. FM station KPVL in Postville is described as the first turnkey install completed by Smarts that includes both studio and transmitter sites.
According to APT, the project also uses one of its new Program Channel Access Unit cards for an STL link of several hundred yards. The card sends 15 kHz stereo audio over a 256 kbps data rate using apt-X compression. The card is a joint venture of Pulsecom and APT, and is intended to offer an alternative to compression techniques such as Layer II or J.41 available from local service providers. Dane Roach is chief engineer of Smarts Broadcasting.
