FELTON, California — The Inovonics Novia series is described as a compact and economical solution for a host of broadcast audio processing requirements, including FM stereo, AM and stereo utility processing.
The DSP-based three-band processors offer intuitive, menu-driven setup, with IP interface for remote web access. IP connectivity provides local and email alarms and support for SNMP.
The Novia 272 gives the FM broadcaster comprehensive program and audio air chain processing. It includes a stereo-multiplex generator and a full-function dynamic RDS/RBDS radio data encoder (compatible with most automation systems); analog and AES digital streaming in; MPX/streaming out; 10 factory and 10 custom presets; adaptable HF limiting and variable composite processing.
The Novia 262 is a dual-mode device that makes a great utility processor placed ahead of STL and codecs. The FM mode provides comprehensive program audio air chain processing when multiplex encoding is built into the exciter/transmitter. Equally at home in the studio, the flat mode serves a variety of general production-studio audio conditioning needs. Features include analog and AES digital streaming in; MPX/streaming out; 10 factory and 10 custom presets; selectable 20 kHz-wideband and FM-specific processing.
The Novia 236 is tailored for medium-wave monaural AM broadcasting. It combines the functions of slow, gain-riding AGC, “syllabic” consistency leveling, four stages of parametric EQ, three bands of dynamic range compression with variable crossovers, brick wall bandwidth restriction and a final no-splatter peak controller that supports asymmetrical carrier modulation. Features include analog and AES digital streaming in; MPX/streaming out; 10 factory and 10 custom presets; selectable U.S. and international cutoff filters; and asymmetrical final limiting. It is NRSC-compliant.
