DEVA Broadcast DB6000-STC

DB6000-STC – Stereo and RDS Generator

Advanced Stereo and RDS Generator – BS412 Compliant

DEVA’s line of broadcast tools can now boast a groundbreaking new device. This device provides a multitude of unparalleled features to meet the strictest requirements.

It is fully BS412-compliant. It ensures that you can achieve the loudness of sound that you need while retaining perfect sound clarity. The device is compatible with all types of transmitters. It gives the same consistent level of high-quality sound, fulfilling even the strictest customer requirements.

The foundation of this exceptional tool is the 32bits DSP-based Stereo Generator combined with a built-in RDS/RBDS encoder. It allows you to use both analog and digital AES/EBU audio sources and supports SNMP, RS232, UDP, and TCP/IP communication protocols.

The RBS/RBDS encoder can parse scrolling text, automatically separating phrases into word groups. Programming access with the USB, TCP/IP, and UDP/IP interfaces is also a matter of course.

This allows for full integration with the station’s other networked functions including message streams for digital radio and Webcasting. It also offers an ASCII protocol for broadcasting song/artist information.

What makes DEVA Broadcast DB6000-STC especially valuable is its ability to provide against the dead air problem. DEVA Broadcast DB6000-STC detects audio loss and switches automatically to the alternative MP3 player whose backup audio files and playlists can be uploaded from your PC through any FTP client. Its storage capacity is 8GB.

The DEVA Broadcast DB6000-STC is undoubtedly the cream of the crop – easy to use, versatile, dependable, and innovative, supplying even the most demanding clients with the best solution that leaves no room for improvement.
