DB910 – Full Duplex IP Audio Codec

Advanced solutions for a large scope of IP Audio applications

DEVA Broadcast DB910

DEVA gets inspiration from continuous striving for excellence. Its long-term formative experience in the field of IP audio broadcasting tools assisted DEVA to extend its product portfolio with yet another strategic solution. Though the DB910 is a new introduction, it is a Full Duplex IP Audio Codec.

A full-duplex solution when two tools are in use, the DEVA Broadcast DB910 allows you to send and receive audio at the same time. In addition, it guarantees fast and easy monitoring of the signal fed to the transmitter.

Where you do not require two-way transmission, use DEVA Broadcast DB910 either as an encoder or a decoder. It functions seamlessly in this regard being fully compatible with DEVA’s already widely-known hallmark IP audio codecs.

It uncompromisingly ensures real-time audio encoding/decoding into a high-quality configurable format process through the powerful DSP processor.

Furthermore, it supports all the mandatory compressed audio streams and lossless, uncompressed PCM streams. The DEVA Broadcast DB910 offers excellent services for a wide range of professional audio applications: Broadcast, Internet Radio, Studio to Transmitter Link and VoIP.

Supports a Wide Range of Devices

Apart from its main audio source, DB910 supports several IP audio sources. It is also beneficial for a built-in MP3 Backup Audio Player in addition.

With several backup audio sources incorporated, the DB910 immediately switches between the sources when the audio is lost. It returns to the main one when the audio is restored with no user intervention.

Record the MP3 player on the internal SD card. Manage the backup files remotely through the built-in FTP Server, via a standard FTP client.

It combines the super compact form of the DB90 and some of the most impressive features of the renowned DB9000 line in a single product.

The DB910 meets the requirements of the most demanding broadcasters. The advanced radio gear, DEVA Broadcast DB910, is equipped with two-way GPIOs and RS-232 serial communication.

These are fantastic for telemetry and automation. The front panel audio level bar graphs and LED indicators of the unit allow reading the current state of the device at a glance.

Manage the device remotely or locally through a simple and intuitive HTML5 interface. Any kind of web browser, be it your PC, smartphone or tablet, are also excellent to manage remotely or locally.

DB910 is the ultimate all-in-one solution to maintain your competitiveness. It combines essential professional applications and key trends.
