The station has chosen analog over digital for its revamp
Orban Labs will present the first product in its latest generation of audio processors at IBC2022. The Optimod 5950 is a compact 1 RU model designed for FM and DAB+/HD radio broadcasts. It offers a powerful package of features, including Orban’s MX peak limiter technology and a high-resolution touch display, and users can control it remotely via any HTML5 web browser.
With its analog, AES3, composite and digital MPX, and AES67/SMPTE-ST2110 inputs and outputs, the Optimod 5950 can easily integrate into any studio and transmitter environment. Optional µMPX allows a cost-effective transmission of digital MPX signals over IP.
The Optimod 5950 has Orban’s latest audio processing features, including the MX peak limiter to decrease distortion, a subharmonic synthesizer for a punchy bass and a multipath mitigator/phase that reduces multipath distortion without compromising stereo separation. Its onboard RDS/RBDS generator supports dynamic PS scrolling and IP access. A complete set of measurement tools, including oscilloscope and FFT, are available for monitoring audio signals.
Ember+ and SNMP v2 protocols are in place for remote control and monitoring.
“We are very proud to show our Optimod 5950 at IBC. It offers so many powerful features and is only the beginning of a whole series of new products that we will release in 2023,” says David Day, president of Orban Labs.
Orban will profile the Optimod 5950 at its booth 8.D93 at IBC2022.
