A webinar next week will explain the latest generation of HD Radio hardware. It’s free to members of the Society of Broadcast Engineers.
The instructor is Alan Jurison, senior operations engineer for iHeartMedia.
“A new generation of HD Radio hardware combines the Importer and Exporter into a single appliance and simplifies operation while providing integrated time alignment,” the society’s website states.
“Other features include more flexible HD2/HD3/HD4 software- and hardware-based capture client encoding options, and integrated EAS features for multicast channels. Gen4 also offers the advanced extended hybrid mode MP11, which adds an additional 24 kilobits for a total data capacity of 144 kbps.”
Jurison said the fourth-generation platform also includes an HTML5 GUI.
The 90-minute webcast streams on Nov. 18 at 2 p.m. Eastern time. It’s sponsored by Xperi, parent of HD Radio.
