2wcom Systems Unveils EDI over SRT

A robust solution for uninterrupted DAB Network operation

2wcom’s products for DAB network distribution now support EDI over SRT (Secure Reliable Transport). This innovative feature is set to revolutionize the industry by providing a reliable backup for transmitter feeds and enabling the flexible establishment of new transmitter sites.

The innovation is incorporated into 2wcom’s renowned products, the DAB-4c (EDI gateway at the headend) and the DAB-4s (EDI receiver at the transmitter sites), ensuring a seamless and uninterrupted operation of DAB broadcast networks.

Backup transmitter feeds: The EDI over SRT technology offers a dependable backup solution for satellite feeds, which are often the primary source for DAB transmissions. This is particularly beneficial in regions with challenging weather conditions that can disrupt satellite signals. The SRT protocol and seamless backup switching ensure that broadcasts continue uninterrupted, leveraging public internet and LTE modems as a cost-effective and stable alternative.

Rapid establishment of new transmitter sites: With the ability to flexibly establish new transmitter sites, EDI over SRT provides an interim solution when dedicated IP connections are not yet in place. This allows broadcasters to quickly expand their network without waiting for traditional provisioning times, which can often exceed practical planning periods.

The introduction of EDI over SRT by 2wcom Systems underscores our commitment to innovation and our strategic goal to achieve market leadership in DAB distribution. By addressing the critical needs of broadcasters for stability and flexibility, 2wcom continues to set new standards in the industry.
