Harris expanded its FlexStar line of HD Radio equipment with the HDE-200 exporter. The company says it better supports delivery of multiple HD-R programs over a dedicated IP connection.

The exporter supports TCP over IP transport of the E2X protocol, as well as HD Protocol (HDP), a new transport layer protocol that provides support for IP distribution from a central studio to multiple transmission sites.

It includes remote and front-panel metering and monitoring features and an internal GPS module, as well as options for profanity delay, diversity delay and an Arbitron People Meter.

Harris also has added a Host Audio Extraction feature to its FlexStar HDX-FM exciter. It is an embedded audio extractor that lets broadcasters extract analog program audio out of the STL transport stream at the exciter and send it directly to the analog FM transmitter.
