To help get RDS on-air quickly and effortlessly, a very simple and intuitive Windows® interface has been included on the CD-ROM that comes with the SmartGen Micro encoder (and also available on our website). It can be used by anyone for setting the static IDs and flags, to program default entries into the dynamic messaging fields, and for setting of other operating parameters that affect how data is displayed on the radio.

The SmartGen "Micro" will identify your station by format, display your station's "street name", and continuously transmit your station promo or advertising message.

SmartGen "Micro" Encoder is a quick and inexpensive way to have an RDS/RBDS available. The SmartGen "Micro" is able to transmit basic RDS information such as the Program Service name (PS), Program Identification(PI), Alternative Frequencies(AF), Program Type(PTY). Decoder Information and Music / Speech flag are also supported. USB connectivity makes it easy to program the non-volatile memory using any PC and the supplied Windows® software. After programming, the unit should be disconnected and re-installed on the transmitter site. Though it is not capable of "dynamic" messaging of the song titles, SmartGen "Micro" will identify your station by format, displaying your station's "street name", continuously transmitting any station promo or advertising message to your listeners.

Programming software:

Based on our more than 15 years of experience in the RDS field, the SmartGen Basic RDS/RBDS Encoders Manager was developed as a dedicated software for full management of our Basic RDS Encoders range as regards to the latest updates of the RDS/RBDS Standards.
