FM2TS Gateway

Professional, flexible MPEG Encoding Gateway
FM DVB Transcoder for 8 FM radio channels

Overview

Increasingly there is the trend towards IP transmission at contribution of audio signals to existing system components and architectures. Meet a range of broadcasting scenarios with the professional FM2TS Gateway / Transcoder like creating/transcoding multiple "FM / radio to MPEG-2" IP/ASI DVB transport streams (FM to TS, FM to IP) for providing FM audio to cable broadcasters (cable network operators / cable headends), streaming of FM channels for quality assurance, classical FM rebroadcasting or transmitting gap fillers.

Eight FM radio channels into one device, free programmable, multiple and free combinable TS outputs and IP streaming via IP or ASI and a large signal immunity are the basic features. Monitoring of FM and RDS parameters (PI, PS), alarm reporting via e-mail, SNMP, web interface, with audio live streaming in MPEG 1/2, AAC-LC/LD, and HE-AAC formats and advanced FM capabilities including programmable FM tuner parameters such as soft mute, and stereo-to-mono blending, with RDS data forwarding and robust Pro MPEG FEC IP performance are additional key features of the FM2TS gateway.
