RDS/RBDS encoder

Inovonics' Model 730 RDS/RBDS encoder features tagging and RT+ technology, along with dynamic scrolling of the song title, artist information and station ID. With an LCD display, jog wheel and three ways to connect (USB, RS-232 and IP), the 730 is convenient to set up and easy to use. The 730 connects with virtually any playout system, integrates with popular third-party software systems, displays incoming data from automation on the fly and shows outgoing scrolling messages exactly as they are seen by listeners. Messages may also be queued with the built-in scheduler, and a programmable data delay puts messaging in sync with delayed analog audio (diversity or profanity). The included Windows software enables programming through any of the encoder's data ports, while internal data diagnostics and transmission safeguards guarantee foolproof installation and operation. Free field-upgradeable firmware ensures compatibility with any forthcoming RDS/RBDS and Open Data Applications (ODA).
