PENNSAUKEN, N.J.—Less is more with Orban’s new series of FM processing line products, offering fewer models but boosting the feature sets of popular ones.
The new FM processing line includes the 5500i with a full-featured RDS/RBDS generator with PS scrolling; the 5700i features the same RDS/RBDS generator, but also FM and HD outputs; the 8600Si now comes standard with FM and HD outputs; the 8600 FM/HD also now features FM and HD outputs; and the 8700i, which will be introduced at the 2017 NAB Show and has a processed low-latency headphone output, Dante AoIP (AES67) and Orban’s Xponential Loudness algorithm.
All models are now available except for the 8700i, which will begin shipping following the NAB Show.
