The 802EX aims to be a "one-box" HD Radio solution for stations with collocated studio and transmitter facilities or that prefer to keep audio processing at the transmitter site. It includes an embedded exporter; fully adaptive, real-time forward precorrection; selectable HD Radio power levels of –20 dB, –10 dB or levels in between; a stereo generator; up to 16.4 seconds of audio delay and synchronization using the GPS 10 MHz signal.
The front panel features a high-resolution LCD screen and USB port while the back panel has AES3, standard composite and baseband SCA inputs.
Continental will also show its legacy HDe Exporter and new 800EXP Embedded Exporter, a next-generation HD Radio exporter based on embedded DSP technology.
