Las Vegas - Apr 17, 2008 - Nautel and Circuit Research Labs, parent company of Orban/CRL, have entered into an agreement for Nautel to license Orban's audio processing algorithms and develop embedded solutions for Nautel transmitters. This capability will integrate Orban audio processing with new Nautel transmitters and use Nautel's control and display capabilities.
The first product to support the embedded audio processing will be Nautel's NV40 44kW solid-state FM transmitter. The NV40 received the Radio magazine Pick Hit Award at the 2008 NAB Show. The all-digital embedded audio processor consists of a daughter card that plugs into the FM exciter. All control is via the Nautel Advanced User Interface, which for the NV40 means a 17" touch-screen interface for local use and remote access the local interface via the Web.
