Nautel Announces DRM InsideTM for NX Series MW and LW Transmitters

Underlining Nautel’s commitment to digital radio, DRM Inside, the industry’s most integrated DRM Modulator/content server, will provide an easy to manage and integrated approach for Digital Radio Mondiale transmission

IBC, Amsterdam, Stand 8.C61 -- Nautel Limited has announced “DRM Inside”, a simplified approach to DRM broadcasting using an integrated DRM Modulator and content server for its NX Series. Integration results in a cost effective and simplified DRM deployment. Users can achieve local or remote configuration, operation and monitoring using just one user interface, Nautel’s award winning Advanced User Interface (AUI). The full function DRM solution will be supported in all NX Series MW and LW transmitters with available outputs of 25 kW to 2000 kW. Existing NX Series customers will have an option to upgrade to DRM Inside by way of an internal PCB card and an easy AUI software update.
“DRM Inside is one more demonstration of Nautel’s focus on ‘Making Digital Radio Work,’” said Peter Conlon, Nautel President and CEO. “Customers have been excited as our engineers place more intelligence and capability inside our transmitters such as Orban Inside for audio processing, IP Audio I/O, automation features or in this case DRM.”
Developed in conjunction with RFmondial and Fraunhofer IIS of Germany, Nautel’s DRM Inside consists of software enhancements to the Nautel AUI, a compact embedded modulator with integrated Fraunhofer DRM ContentServer™, as well as redundant MDI inputs from external DRM ContentServers. The Nautel Advanced User Interface provides presets, logging, diagnostics, and local/remote control of all transmitter functions. The AUI also incorporates an instrument-grade audio analyzer and modulation monitor with display screens that are easy to set up and read. “It is the integration with Nautel’s AUI that unleashes the full power of DRM Inside,” commented Hal Kneller, Nautel Sales Manager Europe. “DRM modes and settings will be controlled within the AUI and can take advantage of presets and the ability to monitor the DRM spectrum remotely.”
DRM Inside has projected availability of Q2 2012. Nautel will be hosting live demonstrations of a DRM Inside prototype and its NX Series transmitters at IBC stand 8.C61. DRM+ is also being demonstrated on Nautel’s award winning NV and VS Series FM transmitters with outputs of 300 W to 88 kW.
