Bayerischer Rundfunk has begun installing 2wcom's FMC01 MPX contribution and distribution system, in a major revision of the broadcaster's delivery infrastructure. The FMC01 combines encoder and decoder functions in the same unit, and allows the broadcaster to send a complete FM MPX signal via E1 or IP. With the FMC01 installed, Bayerischer Rundfunk needs only one stereo generator and one RDS encoder, located at the central studio in Munich to generate the signal for each channel. All FM MPX signals for the broadcaster's 11 radio channels will be generated at one central location and forwarded via E1 to the transmitter locations using the FMC01 operating in encoder mode.
