RDS/RBDS Encoder

DEVA Broadcast SmartGen 4.1

Fully-functional, Dynamic RDS/RBDS Encoder (DEVA Broadcast SmartGen 4.1)

The DEVA Broadcast SmartGen 4.1 is a full-fledged RDS/RBDS encoder that supports both European CENELEC and United States NRSC standards. It supports all service IDs and offers simultaneous scrolling-PS and RadioText messaging. SmartGen 4.1 is fully compatible with the latest UECP EBU SPB490 Version 7.05. It supports the interactive function RT+ for song tagging without a compromise. Based on the latest RDS technology, the SmartGen 4.1 is fully digitally designed for 24/7/365 operation. Thus, the SmartGen 4.1 is the most cost-effective solution for sending of TMC and EWS Services.

In addition, SmartGen 4.1 gives dynamic, on-the-fly programming access with its built-in USB, TCP/IP, UDP/IP interfaces. This connectivity permits full integration of RDS/RBDS transmissions with the station’s other networked functions, including message streaming for digital radio and Webcasting. Furthermore, the SmartGen 4.1 encoder provides a full loopt-hrough interface for connection to your existing broadcast chain. The SmartGen 4.1 can ‘parse’ scrolling text, automatically breaking the phrases into word groups.

PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE:

Based on our more than 15 years of experience in the RDS field, we developed the SmartGen RDS/RBDS Encoders Manager as a dedicated software for full management of our high-end RDS Encoders range as regards to the latest updates of the UECP EBU SPB490 Version 7.05

Supporting Interfaces

Furthermore, it supports a wide range of interfaces as RS-232, USB and LAN. The SmartGen Manager has “Basic RDS” and “Advanced RDS” programming interfaces. Using its “Basic” Mode, you can easily programme all main RDS parameters into the non-volatile memory of the RDS Encoder. Also, the interactive simulator shows the outgoing scrolling messages exactly as they are displayed to the listeners.

The SmartGen RDS/RBDS Encoders Manager has all the functionalities required to drive any parameter by the latest version of the UECP EBU SPB490 Version 7.05. Its visual and self-guided user interface makes the UECP advanced programming of the SmartGen Encoders easy and user-friendly.
