With IP at the heart of broadcasting’s future, codecs are increasingly the gateways of content assimilation and distribution
Audemat FM Probe, which lets broadcasters and regulators perform remote monitoring of channels and verify the conformity of their FM network with both legislation and their broadcasting needs, comes in a compact 1U frame and full list of features
According to the firm, the unit can monitor up to eight programs continuously and 50 programs sequentially. Other functions include deep signal analysis, including spectrums (RF, MPX, audio), full RDS decoding, alarm notification by email, SNMP traps and Syslog, telemetry board, as well as recording and scan monitoring.
In addition, Audemat FM Probe embeds the Kantar watermarking technology to decode and monitor the INK code of any station. This, says the company, allows for users to verify if the watermark for audience measurement is being aired at the correct time.
What’s more, with Audemat FM Probe’s audio recording and streaming feature, radio broadcasters have the capacity to hear, in real-time, the sound rendering of their program.
The product is compatible with SNMP network management systems such as Kybio, and includes ScriptEasy technology. WorldCast adds that the FM + ScriptEasy two-in-one solution enables “advanced telemetry, facility management, and web page customization for simple aggregation and display of relevant data.”
WorldCast Systems will showcase the Audemat FM Probe at IBC2022 in Amsterdam, Sept. 9–12, at booth 8.C58.
