The industry leading Model 730 is Inovonics' flagship RDS (RadioDataSystem) encoder and connects with virtually any playout system, broadcasting song title, artist information, station ID's and much more to listener radios. With full support for Radio Text Plus, 'song tagging' and advanced applications, the 730 provides all the tools broadcasters need to ensure an engaging and dynamic RDS presence.

Interfacing with station automation can be done over IP network (LAN or Internet) connection or by RS-232 serial link . An Internet connection assures accurate Clock Time and Date (CT) timekeeping, and optional changeover to Daylight Saving time is automatic. The included remote control software allows access and messaging changes to be made on the fly and from anywhere in the world.

A front-panel LCD screen and jog wheel make for convenient on-site setup without the need for a computer, while the included remote software enables fast and intuitive programming through any of the encoder's data ports. The front panel screen displays incoming data from automation 'on the fly' and shows outgoing scrolling messages exactly as they are seen by listeners. Internal data diagnostics and transmission safeguards guarantee foolproof installation and operation, and field-upgradeable firmware ensures compatibility with any forthcoming RDS/RBDS applications and updates.
