Damage to its leased analog line cable at the end of 2007 silenced the AM station, which serves the Orthodox Church community in the city, for two weeks.
The replacement of the analog system by Mayah partner Digiton with a Centauri II Audio Gateway and Ganymed 1002 IP audio decoder then assured Radio Grad Petrov broadband signal transport from its studio to the transmitter site at 48 kHz and 768 kbps.
“As a specialist with a long-time experience in PC-based audio transmissions over IP, I cannot stop wondering at the Ganymed 1002,” said Radio Grad Petrov Technical Director Anton Sergeev. “You just bring the decoder to the broadcasting center, connect it to the IP network and forget about it forever.”
With the new STL system in place, Radio Grad Petrov will also be able to move up to stereo transmission in future if desired.
