DEVA Broadcast’s new DB4005 is a third-generation digital FM radio modulation analyzer and monitoring receiver.
The company explains that the system features software-defined radio FM tuner-based signal processing, achieved through “sophisticated” DSP algorithms and that its digital filter precision enables the FM signal to be accurately and repeatedly analyzed with each device.
In addition, says DEVA, the MPX input allows users to monitor external baseband signals, regardless of whether they are from a composite STL receiver/stereo FM encoder, or from an off-air source. “With its incredible processing power, it provides detailed readings of all the multiplex FM signal components, while all measurements are refreshed simultaneously and synchronously,” the company says.
What’s more, the DB4005’s loudness meter can display measurements as defined by both ITU BS.1770-4 and EBU R128 recommendations, thanks to the product’s support of both standards.
This tool, which DEVA says allows operators to monitor up to 50 FM radio stations, supports USB and LAN communication interfaces for remote connection and control. It also provides features such as TCP/IP connectivity, audio streaming, and automatic alerts for operation outside of predefined ITU-R ranges.
