DEVA Broadcast SmartGen 4.1

UECP Compatible RDS/RBDS Encoder with LAN & USB Connectivity

Fully-functional, Dynamic RDS/RBDS Encoder

The DEVA Broadcast SmartGen 4.1 is a full-fledged RDS/RBDS encoder that supports both European CENELEC and United States NRSC standards. It supports all service IDs and offers simultaneous scrolling-PS and Radio Text messaging. SmartGen 4.1 is fully compatible with the latest UECP EBU SPB490 Version 7.05. It supports the interactive function RT+ for song tagging without a compromise. Based on the latest RDS technology, the SmartGen 4.1 is fully digitally designed for 24/7/365 operation. Thus, SmartGen 4.1 is the most cost-effective solution for sending TMC and EWS Services.

In addition, DEVA Broadcast SmartGen 4.1 gives dynamic, on-the-fly programming access with its built-in USB, TCP/IP, and UDP/IP interfaces. This connectivity permits full integration of RDS/RBDS transmissions with the station’s other networked functions, including message streaming for digital radio and webcasting. Furthermore, the SmartGen 4.1 encoder provides a full loop-through interface for connection to your existing broadcast chain. The DEVA Broadcast SmartGen 4.1 can ‘parse’ scrolling text, automatically breaking the phrases into word groups.


Based on our more than 15 years of experience in the RDS field, we developed the SmartGen series of  RDS/RBDS Encoders.  DEVA Manager is the dedicated software for full management of our high-end RDS Encoders range as regards the latest updates of the UECP EBU SPB490 Version 7.05

Supporting Interfaces

Furthermore, it supports a wide range of interfaces such as RS-232, USB and LAN. The SmartGen Manager has “Basic RDS” and “Advanced RDS” programming interfaces. Using its “Basic” Mode, you can easily programme all main RDS parameters into the non-volatile memory of the RDS Encoder. Also, the interactive simulator shows the outgoing scrolling messages exactly as they are displayed to the listeners.

The SmartGen RDS/RBDS Encoders Manager has all the functionalities required to drive any parameter by the latest version of the UECP EBU SPB490 Version 7.05. Its visual and self-guided user interface makes the UECP advanced programming of the SmartGen Encoders easy and user-friendly.
