The Telos Alliance partnered with Nautel and Moseley at IBC2016 to demonstrate the µMPX, an FM codec that it says is able to transport high-quality multiplexed FM signals over a 320 kbps IP connection.
With µMPX, low bandwidth IP connections and narrow band STL channels can now be used to transport MPX signals, according to the presenters.
“µMPX’s core technology is very far along in development. We are sharing µMPX with the industry at IBC so we can broaden the conversation to this international audience,” says Frank Foti, CEO of the Telos Alliance. “We think µMPX will be good for all of Radio, and our intention is to make it available under license to a wide variety of interested parties.”
The live demo transported an encoded multiplexed FM signal over IP from the Telos Alliance stand, through a Moseley Starlink STL and directly into a µMPX decoder feeding a Nautel transmitter.
