At NAB 2wcom will be introducing new products, as well as showing the FlexDSR02+/FlexDSR04+, IRD for audio contribution via satellite and IP. “These extremely versatile, multi-faceted solutions are being deployed by major broadcasters to build the next generation of robust, high-quality cost-effective radio infrastructure,” commented Werner Drews (pictured), MD of 2wcom.
The company will extend its audio-over-IP offering with the new AIC , a 19-inch unit that combines IP encoder and decoder functions in one chassis. Supporting all current audio formats and providing network streaming connections, the AIC is a solution for in-house distribution in broadcasting centres, with multi-service infrastructure and centralised administration.
The 2wcom FlexNsert DAB+ Distribution Inserter receives a DAB ETI data stream, converts the stream into a standard MPEG2-TS-signal and outputs it via ASI or Ethernet transport stream interfaces. The FlexXtract+ DAB+ Distribution Extractor demodulates a data stream (2048 kbps) from a DVB-S or DVB-S2 signal and converts the data into a standard ETI-signal according to EN 300799 or EDI-signal according to TS 102 693 to feed DAB or DAB+ transmitters.
The new FMC01 is a compact codec for FM MPX contribution and distribution via IP or E1. It can combine encoder and decoder functions and offers 100% lossless audio encoding/decoding and optimised bandwidth technology.
2wcom will debut a new solution for SFN FM networks at NAB 2014 that provides synchronisation for implementing FM SFN networks with existing analogue transmission infrastructure. Distribution can be by E1, IP or satellite, and any one of the feeds can be selected for backup purposes without affecting the synchronisation.
