Australian testing completed on innovative IP based radio STL’s

AVW has completed testing of the Sigmacom uncompressed EtherMPX Encoder/Decoder IP STL solution in Australia.
EtherMPX is primarily designed MPX over IP applications with the linearity and latency control to make it excellent for SFN applications as well
AVW Global CTO Murray Hunt said “Providing cost effective, low latency IP STL’s for radio broadcasters is the aim of the Sigmacom EtherMPX encoder-decoder.  Being an uncompressed format there is freedom from modulation overshoot present on many bitrate reduced or compression based networks”
“As the link can carry left / right audio, AES3 audio or baseband / mux from a studio’s stereo generator and processor it provides a no-compromises-needed approach to audio transmission using cost-effective IP transport. Carry it on your WAN or IP radios!”

 Sigmacom Chief Engineer, Stilianos Kirkalas, suggests not to compare IP based Radio STL’s with internet audio streaming of 128kbps mp3 with 20 seconds of buffering.
The Sigmacom system is uncompressed real time audio traffic for improved quality and performance.
EtherMPX with SFN+GPS options, offers higher accuracy (+/-35nS) and is more economical (-60% in MSRP terms) compared to any other available solution in the market today.
Test and demonstration systems are available for evaluation from AVW for professional users and Network operators. 
More product information is available on the decoder and encoder
