The Model 703 RDS/RBDS encoder from Inovonics is the first member of a new line of 1/3 rack wide (1 RU high) products called the INOmini series. The Model 703 can be used as a standalone unit or up to three Model 703s can be mounted via a new INOmini rack shelf.
The 703 is designed to insert up to 128 characters into transmission signals. Suggested uses are for station ID, commercial messages or program promos. Messages are static rather than dynamic but can be updated frequently.
A USB connection and Windows software are the modes of operation. The 703 supports all standard RDS/RBDS housekeeping functions. An onboard memory allows for storage of preprogrammed messages for remote operation. Also included is an alternative frequency list for use with multiple transmitters and translators. A front-panel trim pot controls injection level.
