German-based IZT has expanded its support of digital radio, adding new DAB features to its S1000 (shown below) signal generator family. IZT’s new DAB ContentServer Embedded Edition (shown right) integrates DAB, DAB+ and DMB multiplexing and makes the functionality of the DAB ContentServer directly available on the S1000.
The new software option encodes and multiplexes audio and data services and features a Web interface that provides access to needed parameters, the firm explained.
The Embedded Edition of the DAB ContentServer includes basic functionality, while an upgrade to the full DAB ContentServer Developer Edition is available.
In addition, the S1000 can now also come with a real-time DAB/DAB+/DMB modulator. According to IZT, the modulator supports simultaneous streaming of multiple ensembles, creating a direct link between the DAB ContentServer and S1000 with EDI protocol.
DAB ETI files can be us
ed as an input source without conversion; the real-time DAB modulator is capable of dynamic reconfigurations; and S1000 impairment features can be applied to the DAB modulator, said the company.
IZT also announced that it has joined WorldDMB forum.
