The SmartGen 5.0 can be controlled by RS-232, USB, LAN, WAN, or via the Internet, on a global level. The most common settings can be changed in a Web interface. For more advanced settings the unit can be controlled by the user-friendly “SmartGen RDS/RDBS Encoder Manager.”
The RDS encoder can perform all the operations expected by a device of this high-class - from a simple configuration for a local radio station to a complex RDS configuration with ODA, EON and TMC implementations for several radio stations. In addition, the interactive function RT+ for song tagging is also fully supported.
The interactive function RT+ for song tagging is fully supported without compromise. The SmartGen 5 can 'parse' scrolling text, automatically breaking phrases into word groups. Based on the latest RDS technology, the SmartGen 5 is fully digitally designed for 24/7/365 operation.
The SmartGen 5 is a cost-effective solution for sending of TMC and EWS Services. The front-panel LCD displays setup parameters without the need of an on-site computer, and also shows the incoming raw data from station automation as well as exactly what the listener sees displayed on his radio. Supplied with free of charge, dedicated programming software “SmartGen RDS/RBDS Encoders Manager”, this encoder programming is simple and foolproof like never before.
SmartGen 5 comes with an Embedded WEB Server for remote and easy programming and supervision. SmartGen 5 gives dynamic programming access with its built-in RS232, USB, TCP/IP, UDP/IP interfaces. This connectivity permits full integration of RDS/RBDS transmissions with the station’s other networked functions like message streams for Webcasting or Digital Radio. The SmartGen 5 encoder provides a full loopthrough interface for connection to your existing broadcast chain.
