Burk Technology will introduce the WatchBand remote receiver, which delivers station and market monitoring tools to managers, engineers and programming departments.
WatchBand provides stereo, phase and field intensity data, streaming audio and decoded RDS to PCs with an Internet connection. Broadcasters can record audio streams for remote playback, as well as log audio metrics for review and analysis. Automatic logging routines allow station-to-station comparisons for the market. Logged RDS data reveals content on market stations.
Burk also will showcase its SL-1 serial LAN extender, which connects two LANs via an existing serial connection, allowing remote IP access without a separate ISP or VRN; and the AFD-1 arc and flame detector, which detects a pilot light, flame or arc from fifteen feet, even in daylight.
AFD-1 applications include transmitter enclosures, antenna-tuning units and transfer switches. It interfaces with remote facility management systems, such as the ARC Plus, ARC-16, GSC3000 or VRC2500.
