Orban will begin shipping its new generation of audio processors in June, with the Optimod 5950 first off the assembly line.
“It has a compact 1 RU design and offers a powerful package of features including Orban’s breakthrough MX Peak Limiter technology,” the company says.
“Equipped with a high-resolution touch display and the ability to be controlled remotely via any HTML5 web browser, the Optimod 5950 combines user-friendly operation with the highest quality audio processing for FM and DAB+/HD Radio broadcasts.”
Analog, AES3, composite and digital MPX as well as AES67/SMPTE-ST2110 inputs and outputs allow easy integration into any studio/transmitter environment. The optional Orban µMPX interface can be used for a cost-effective transmission of digital MPX signals over IP.
Audio processing features such as the Subharmonic Synthesizer for a punchy bass and Multipath Mitigator for stereo-to-mono downmix are included in the 5950. Its RDS/RBDS generator supports dynamic PS scrolling and IP access.
Monitored dual power supplies and defeatable I/O safety bypass relays provide assurance of reliable operation.
Orban will have the Optimod 5950 at the NAB Show, booth W2543.
