RCS has released the most recent version of its RCS HD Importer.
The audio data and delivery system for HD Radio is based on the Ibiquity Version 2 platform and enables broadcasters greater control over HD channels.
In this version, GPS synchronization is not necessary for rhythm with the exporter. Importer 2 is based on TCP/IP, which the company says provides stability. Additionally, Importer 2 uses the same WAV driver model that NexGen Digital uses, which allows users to employ the same driver over an enterprise.
Users also can create second and third channels by telling the Importer what bandwidth to allocate to a specific channel and picking a sound device to capture audio from. RCS HD Multicast Importer has PSD support for NexGen Digital, which RCS says ensures title and artist information land on the radio’s display.
