Broadcast audio processing company Orban has released its new Optimod XPN-Enterprise ecosystem — a customizable Linux-based processing platform for multiple broadcast stations or streaming services, with centralized control. It provides OptiCloud processing for up to eight FM and eight HD/DAB+/streaming processing channels in a 1 RU package and supports AES-67/SMPTE-2110 protocols using an enterprise-class SoftGear server and the appropriate Optimod XPN-Enterprise Nodes.
According to Orban, national broadcasters approved the system after extensive field-testing.
“Broadcasters worldwide are realizing the benefits of moving operations to centralized — and ideally, virtualized — environments. Many of these customers have high-density needs, with many signals that need to be managed,” said David Day, Orban president. “With XPN-Enterprise, those needs are easily met.”
With the new system, content via any of the most common methods of audio transport — AES3, AES67, SMPTE-2110-30, Dante or Livewire+ — arrives in one place. It is then individually processed for the necessary outputs (FM Composite, DMPX, uMPX, and DAB+HD) using the appropriate Orban XPN-Enterprise Nodes for distribution to each transmitter site. The XPN-Enterprise server also handles the processed channels destined for streaming by sending those outputs to the appropriate streaming devices.
