GatesAir is demonstrating its enhanced DAB radio solution for broadcasters transitioning from FM to national digital radio systems, which the company says, adds a new layer of redundancy across expansive DAB transmitter networks.
GatesAir has designed a dual EDI interface for networks using Maxiva VAX VHF transmitters, with switching between main and backup paths across networked DAB contribution and distribution architectures.
As EDI is an IP-based transport system, broadcasters can take advantage of lower program delivery costs and greater multipoint flexibility, explains GatesAir. Dual EDI inputs are integrated with Maxiva VAX transmitters, linking third-party DAB headend and multiplexers with Maxiva exciters to further accelerate DAB network deployments, it added.
