At the NAB Show Harris will introduce the FlexStar HDI-200 Importer, a companion to the company’s second-generation Exporter for HD Radio broadcast environments.
The HDI-200, Harris says, follows many of the generation changes seen in its HDE-200 Exporter. The new Importer is a more compact 1RU unit with a 40 GB solid-state hard drive, reducing footprint and moving parts in comparison to its predecessor. Enhanced memory and processing technologies improve reliability and start-up times.
Harris says the efficient design also reduces power consumption at the studio. The HDI-200 Importer is available as a new system featuring an iBiquity software license or as a hardware-only upgrade for first-generation Harris Importer customers.
Optional DTS Neural Audio NeuStar 4.0SW codec pre-conditioning software is available to reduce audio artifacts in the HD Radio stream, improving audio quality in the process.
