DaySequerra has introduced three HD Radio broadcast tuners. The units were to begin shipping to radio stations and CE retailers shortly after CES. RW Online first reported on the company's initiative in November.
The HD Broadcast Reference can receive and distribute up to 10 different audio and video signal sources including HDTV, HD Radio, analog AM and FM, and TV to multiple zones. Future broadcast modules will include satellite radio as well as streaming Internet audio, said the company.
Display options provide station, channel, RDS (where available) center tuning, signal strength and RF multipath indications. The model also includes indicators for signal strength and RF multipath.
The HD Radio Monitor, model M2, is a receiver and modulation monitor for all new HD Radio broadcast sources.
The high resolution, peak and hold 50-segment LED meters in the M2 precisely indicates RF carrier modulation % and audio modulation in dB; the M2 also uses a multi-function VFD for tuning and other station information. The M2 can also include optional alarms for over-modulation, loss of audio and loss of carrier, if needed. All M2 tuner functions can be monitored and controlled remotely via a USB interface.
On display in Ibiquity’s booth here at CES, Ibiquity’s Scott Stull said this means three monitors will soon be available for HD Radio: Belar, Audemat-Aztec and the DaySequerra.
KUVO’s Mike Pappas told RW Online DaySequerra would deliver a unit to KUVO for a combined SBE/AES seminar on HD Radio Feb. 23 in Denver.
