The DAB ContentServer from IZT is a professional encoder and multiplexer system for the infrastructure of digital broadcast transmitter networks.
The system generates a multiplex signal of audio signals as well as additional data services for DAB.
IZT’s DAB head-end is based on the ContentServer technology of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS). It enables integrated encoding of all audio sources as well as processing of standard and user-specific data services. Redundancy concepts increase great reliability, said IZT.
A focus on the stand are the real world recent DAB+ networks that use IZT multiplexers, said Alexander Jahn, head of operations at Bayern Digital Radio. One recent project expanded the digital radio offering in Germany: The latest extension is the “DAB+ network Allgäu,” which went into operation in November, 2018. The operator of the network is Bayern Digital Radio GmbH. IZT and Bayern Digital Radio are partners since 2012 and look back on a large number of successful joint projects, said Jahn.
