Internet radio monitor
The 610 is the first dedicated hardware solution for uninterrupted monitoring of online radio quality and performance. It provides balanced analog and AES-digital outputs, self-logging alarms that constantly check for audio loss, stream loss and Internet loss, and an easy-to-use tuner that decodes audio and displays live metadata for MP3, Ogg Vorbis and AAC formats. Rear-panel alarm tallies provide local alarms, and online notifications alert personnel with e-mail or instant text messages when any of the three alarms occur. The front panel displays left and right audio metering, local LED alarms and an LCD screen with jog wheel for advanced control and editing of all tuning and monitoring parameters. The 610's Web interface allows complete setup and control of the unit from a PC, tablet or smartphone, and two-way connectivity is ensured with a built-in Dynamic DNS utility.
