WorldCast RDS Encoder Shipping in February

Offers MPX-over-AES composite for some digital options

WorldCast’s Audemat marque is soon to be shipping a new RDS encoder, Audemat RDS Encoder.

Built on the company’s FMB80, the RDS encoder carries the expected RDS/RDBS tools (e.g. artist name, song titles, traffic message, EAS, etc.). But looking forward it adds an MPX-over-AES digital audio function. Furthermore, it can insert the encoding directly into the digital chain.

It is also compatible with the latest RDS Edition 2018 standards (IEC- 62106-1 :2018 to IEC 62106-6:2018) and upcoming RDS2 standards. WorldCast notes, “RDS2 will allow broadcasters to send more information (such as pictures) through the FM signal by adding three subcarriers to the MPX/composite signal.”

Being a WorldCast product it is conversant with the company’s ScriptEasy Apps and Manager for programming, control and management. It is fully networkable and remote controllable.

There’s also an onboard tuner for immediate monitoring.
