Inovonics Novia 236

NOVIA AM Audio Processor

The Inovonics NOVIA 236 is expressly tailored for medium-wave monaural AM broadcasting.


Original price was: €2,150.Current price is: €2,050.


The Inovonics Novia 236 AM Audio Processor is specifically designed for medium-wave monaural AM broadcasting. It offers a range of features tailored to optimize audio quality and signal processing for this application. Here’s a breakdown of its key features and specifications:


  1. AGC (Automatic Gain Control):
    • Gated and ‘windowed’ gain-riding AGC for maintaining consistent audio levels.
  2. Syllabic Consistency Leveling:
    • Adjustable ‘syllabic leveling’ for ensuring consistent audio quality.
  3. Dynamic Range Compression:
    • 3 bands of dynamic compression with selectable crossovers for controlling audio dynamics.
  4. Parametric EQ (Equalizer):
    • 4 stages of parametric EQ for precise control over the audio signal’s frequency content.
    • Includes a selectable ‘Bass Punch’ feature for enhancing bass.
  5. Peak Controller:
    • Final peak controller to support asymmetrical carrier modulation and prevent splatter.
  6. Presets and Control:
    • 10 factory and 10 user-defined processing presets for simplified setup and operation.
    • IP interface for remote control using any PC or mobile device. SNMP operation supported.
  7. Input and Output Options:
    • Accepts both program line and streaming inputs.
    • Analog, AES-digital, and streaming in/outs supported.
  8. Monitoring and Alarms:
    • Allows remote IP audio monitoring.
    • GPIOs, Web/email/SNMP for controls and alarms.
    • Built-in real-time clock and headphone jack.
  9. Utility and Compatibility:
    • Selectable US and international cutoff filters.
    • Suitable for use ahead of STLs/codecs.


  • Frequency Response (processing bypassed): 50Hz – 20kHz, ±0.25dB
  • Output Cutoff Response:
    • Nominal Frequencies: Menu-selectable options.
    • Filter Characteristic: 143-coefficient FIR filter with phase and overshoot compensation.
  • Pre-Emphasis: Selectable flat or ‘truncated’ US NRSC preemphasis curve.
  • Distortion (processing bypassed):
    • Analog I/O: <0.02% THD.
    • AES Digital I/O: <0.002% THD.
  • Signal-to-Noise (processing bypassed):
    • Analog I/O: >105dB.
    • AES Digital I/O: >120dB.
  • Program Line Inputs:
    • Analog: Active-balanced (XLR).
    • AES Digital: (XLR).
    • IP Streaming: Supports Icecast/SHOUTcast MP3, Ogg, and AAC streams.
  • Program Line Outputs: Analog (XLR).
  • Positive Peak Enhancement: Selective limiting of positive-going peaks.
  • Program Signal Latency (Delay): Approx. 3.75ms
  • Network Port: TCP/IP network connection (RJ45) for remote setup/operation and audio streaming.
  • GPIO Ports: 3 GPI, 3 GPO with assignable functions.
  • Headphone Jack: Front-panel (TRS) 3.5mm.
  • Power Requirement: 12VDC at 240mA.
  • Mounting Options: Optional rack adapter for standard 19-inch, 1U rack space.
  • Size and Weight: 1.6”H x 8”W x 6”D; 5 lbs shipping weight.
  • Environmental: Operating temperature range: 32ºF/0ºC to 122ºF/50ºC; 0-95% relative humidity; altitudes to 10,000ft/3,048m.

Overall, the Novia 236 offers comprehensive audio processing capabilities and flexibility, along with convenient remote control and monitoring options, making it well-suited for AM broadcasting applications.
