SmartGen Mini – RDS / RBDS Encoder

The DEVA Broadcast SmartGen Mini  is both Compact, Robust, Reliable and Smart

It is Compact, Robust, Reliable and Smart. This is just a small part of all the advantages of our Second Generation RDS/RBDS Encoder DEVA Broadcast SmartGen Mini.

Moreover, it supports the interactive function RT+ for song tagging without a compromise. Based on the latest RDS technology, we developed, and digitally designed the SmartGen Mini for 24/7/365 operation.

Furthermore, the DEVA Broadcast SmartGen Mini is the most cost-effective solution for sending of TMC and EWS Services. It supports both European CENELEC and United States NRSC standards and is fully compatible with the latest UECP EBU SPB490 Version 7.05

DEVA Broadcast SmartGen Mini gives dynamic, on-the-fly programming access with its built-in USB, TCP/IP, UDP/IP interfaces. In addition, this connectivity permits full integration of RDS/RBDS transmissions with the station’s other networked functions.

Also, it includes message streamings for digital radio and Webcasting. The DEVA Broadcast SmartGen Mini encoder provides a full loop-through interface for connection to your existing broadcast chain. It can also ‘parse’ scrolling text, automatically breaking the phrases into word groups.

The DEVA Broadcast SmartGen Mini has all the RDS features that you could possibly need and that at an incredible price.


We have more than 15 years of experience in the RDS field. Thus, DEVA developed the SmartGen RDS/RBDS Encoders Manager as 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

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 programme all main RDS parameters into the non-volatile memory of the RDS Encoder. And 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.
