Melbourne, June - Paneda and Agile Broadcast have recently completed a sizeable national deployment of DAB+ software, hardware and implementation services to provide a comprehensive, national Digital Radio Multiplexing solution.
A total of 16 multiplexers have been commissioned in only two geographically diverse data centers, with over 140 audio encoders deployed at client contribution sites nationally. Despite this widespread installation, a simple web interface to the Paneda multiplexer provides all user and configuration requirements for the entire national solution.
During rollout, the comprehensive monitoring of the DAB+ Broadcast systems was performed by the RFmondial DAB monitoring tools. RFmondial developed virtual instances of the RF-DAB Monitoring receivers to monitor all aspects of ensemble data at the two data centers, whilst the professional stand-alone RF-DAB monitoring receivers are located at each transmitter site - further validating the delivery of a compliant EDI Stream to each transmission hand-off point.
