Clear Channel and 2wcom Work Together for Satellite Receiver

Two model families available, one with onboard memory and IP input

Clear Channel Satellite has teamed up with German broadcast equipment 2wcom to build a line of satellite receivers for radio use.

Called the XtremeSat Media Content Receivers, there are two model families available, MCR-100 and MCR-200. Each family offers a single-channel and a multichannel member.

According to Monty Dent, sales manager for Clear Channel Satellite, the new receivers are aimed at “small to medium-sized networks with the equipment built to the highest quality standards for many years of reliable service.”

Built on a Linux-based server, all models share certain basics: DVB-S2 tuner, Ethernet interface, SNMP messaging, HE-AAC and AAC-LC, along with MPEG 1 layers II and III and MPEG 4, onboard RDS/UECP decoder and output for handling RDS, PAD and other ancillary data services, eight network cue relays, adjustable audio delay and audio switchover.

The MCR-200 level models add 4 GB of onboard SD card memory, an IP audio input, regional spot insertion and program and cued recording for delayed playback.
