Worldwide Broadcast Equipment
The Model 235 incorporates all audio processing needs for AM broadcasting in a single, easy-to-use package.
"Gain-riding" AGC is followed by variable low- and high-frequency EQ, 3-band compression, an asymmetrical, integrated limiter/clipper peak controller, and a low-pass function that satisfies NRSC or other "audio mask" specifications. A rear-panel RS-232 data port allows the processing presets to be programmed or updated by computer or modem; the necessary software is included.
The 718 "DAVID-III" combines comprehensive multiband audio processing with a digital-synthesis stereo generator for unparalleled performance and great value.
Pulse-width-modulation (PWM) techniques ensure rock-stable operation and a very competitive, yet effortless sound. Density and equalization adjustments allow the broadcaster to tailor the 'signature' of the on-air sound. Proprietary PIPP* final limiting and an adjustable composite clipper guarantee full carrier modulation for any program audio source or characteristic.
The DAVID IV is the fourth generation processor in our DAVID (vs. Goliath) series of FM and HD Radio air-chain processors.
Our streamlined, 100% DSP-based audio engine gives you total leverage over the most important sonic ‘signature’ parameters, while smart controls allow you to enhance program material quickly and effectively. Processing includes 5 bands of dynamics compression with equalization, intelligent gain-riding AGC (Automatic Gain Control), Bass and Stereo Field Enhancements, and our proprietary PIPP™ (Polarity Independent Peak Processing) limiter. The DAVID IV combines a remarkably clean sound with a premium FM Stereo Generator that also includes internal metering with combining for the RDS(RadioData System) subcarrier.
The 719-01 HD Radio Delay Board is an optional drop-in accessory for our DAVID IV FM/HD Radio Broadcast Processor. It enables up to 9.999 seconds of audio delay for the Composite (MPX) and/or analog and digital program line outputs.
Because there is an obligatory delay of roughly 8 seconds in the digital program encoding and decoding process present in HD Radio, the analog-FM signal must be delayed by this same amount to arrive in sync with the digital signal. This time-aligning “diversity delay,” as it is called, is enabled in the DAVID IV with this optional accessory circuit board that is simply plugged into a header strip on the main board. The delay is adjustable between zero and 9.999 seconds in one-millisecond increments, and once installed, activates new a menu adjustment, using either the front-panel jog wheel or remote PC software.
The 261 Utility Processor provides an all-inclusive system for general audio normalization, level management and FM-airchain use.
The 261 Utility Processor provides an all-inclusive system for general audio normalization, level management and FM-airchain use. It combines the functions of gated, gain-riding AGC, dynamic range compression and independent broadband and high-frequency program peak limiting. Processing functions may be selected from the front panel separately or combined for comprehensive program audio control.
The 261 features AES-digital and L/R analog inputs; digital and analog outputs are available simultaneously. Digital input sample rates are detected automatically, while multiple output sample rates can be easily selected from the front panel.
Extra features like alarms and a front panel lockout switch make the 261 a complete package for broadcasters looking for comprehensive level management. 100% digital DSP architecture ensures easy setup, transparent signal path, and unobtrusive menu-driven operation.
Poseidon 5 is a 5 band digital processor with 10 pre-programmed equalization curves, offering 10 additional
equalization curves that can be personalized.
Poseidon features two independent serial ports uncoupled by opto-isolators. This assures maximum immunity from other equipment noise. Digital input is optional. Standard are: stereo enhancer, digital stereo generator MPX and digital modulator RDS. Poseidon digital input (optional) can be connected in two ways: through a balanced XLR connector or a standard fiber optic connector. Poseidon integrates a top quality digital stereo enhancer inside allowing maximum expression of the stereophonic effect. Because the stereo enhancer is built-in to Poseidon, all parameters are controlled and optimized to assure maximum modulation stability and a 3-D sound effect.
The Orban 6300 is a high-quality, multipurpose stereo audio processor for digital radio, digital television, netcasts, STL protection, satellite uplink protection, and digital mastering. With 20 kHz audio bandwidth, the 6300 succeeds Orban’s popular OPTIMOD-DAB 6200 audio processor but offers improved processing algorithms and more flexibility.
Any of its three outputs can emit any of the following signals:
• Stereo enhancement, equalization, and AGC without look-ahead peak limiting
• Stereo enhancement, equalization, and AGC with peak limiting
• Stereo enhancement, equalization, and multiband processing (2-band or 5-band, including AGC) without peak limiting
• Stereo enhancement, equalization, and multiband processing (2-band or 5-band, including AGC) with peak limiting.
OPTIMOD-FM 5500 puts coveted five-band and two-band OPTIMOD processing into a single rack unit package and brings it to you at the most affordable price ever!
With the 5500, your signature sound is just a preset away. An easy, one-knob Less/More adjustment allows you to customize any factory preset, trading cleanliness against processing artifacts according to the requirements of your market and competitive environment. Full Control gives you the versatility to customize your audio further. And, if you're a hard-core processing expert, you can explore Advanced Control to tweak presets at the same level as Orban's factory programmers. This versatility makes the 5500 a superb choice for any format. Its five-band processing is ideal for any pop music format (even the most competitive and aggressive CHR), while phase-linear two-band processing yields ultratransparent sound for classical, classic jazz, and fine arts formats. Regardless of your choice, 5500's optimized technology ensures unusually high average modulation and coverage for a given level of subjective quality. Unlike many lesser processors, the 5500 handles speech particularly well. It's always clean, even when you process for loudness.
For years, broadcasters have trusted Optimod-FM 8500 to build audiences and ratings with its big, bold sound. Optimod-FM 5700 now offers the popular 8500 sound in a compact, cool-running 1U package at a more affordable price. The 5700 provides stereo enhancement, equalization, AGC, multiband compression, low-IM peak limiting, stereo encoding, and composite limiting—everything that you need to compete in your market.
The front-panel display includes a 2x40-character LCD and LED bargraphs that show all metering functions of the processing structure (Two-Band or Five-Band) in use. The metering is always visible while you are adjusting the processor. Navigation is by dedicated buttons, soft buttons (whose functions are context-sensitive), and a large rotary knob.
Ethernet connectivity is standard, as is an easy to use PC remote control application that runs on Windows XP and higher and that can control many 5700 units on a TCP/IP network. Additionally, programmable contact-closure (GPI) control plus ACSII terminal control via the 5700's RS232 serial and Ethernet ports together give you total freedom to interface the 5700 with your facility's remote control infrastructure, whatever it might be. SNMP support offers yet another way to control and monitor the 5700's operation via your network.
The 5700 is available in two versions: an FM-only version (5700FM) and a version (5700HD) that includes simultaneous processing for FM and for digital transmissions like netcasts and HD Radio. Via a purchased upgrade kit, the FM version can be upgraded to the HD version at any time without removing the unit from the rack or disconnecting any wiring. Both versions offer up to 16 seconds of delay in the FM processing chain, which is useful for HD Radio diversity delay or other purposes.
The FM and digital media processing paths split after the 5700's stereo enhancer and AGC. There are two equalizers, multiband compressors, and peak limiters, allowing the analog FM and digital media processing to be optimized separately. The bottom line? Processing that optimizes the sound of your FM channel while punching remarkably crisp, clean, CD-like audio through to your digital channel audience.
