What is claimed to be a ground-breaking composite FM codec, µMPX, is being demonstrated by The Telos Alliance with participation from Nautel. µMPX (or micro MPX) is a specially designed audio codec for FM radio that can transport high-quality multiplexed FM signals over a relatively small 320kbps data pipe.
By reducing data requirements, high-quality multiplexed audio can be economically routed from an audio processor, over IP, and directly into an exciter.
Wendell Lonergan, head of broadcast sales, Nautel, said, “We are excited to do our part to show these advanced radio transmission technologies at IBC. We invite attendees to visit our stand for personal demonstrations of our technologies, with options for not only analogue but HD radio and DRM modes, as well as low power television.”
