Energy-Onix says it will demonstrate the E-Caster Internet RPU, the Tele-Link III Internet STL and DRE technology, which permits an FM broadcast station to simultaneously transmit additional digital stereo and mono channels with its normal FM stereo or mono analog.
The E-Caster system permits a broadcaster with an Internet connection at his studio to originate a 15 kHz mono program from the E-Caster, which is portable and contains a four-channel microphone mixer. The system includes facilities to “talk back” from studio to remote.
The Tele-Link III achieves a 22 kHz analog stereo link by way of interconnecting two terminals with a broadband Ethernet path such as ISDN, T1, DSL or Spread Spectrum Microwave.
The company says DRE technology requires no changes to the existing FM analog transmitter. The system consists of an encoder and receivers, and will be demonstrated with an Energy-Onix stereo exciter.
