AVT’s MAGIC DABMUX plus Monitoring Decoder

To serve the increasing requirement for centralized DAB monitoring, AVT from Germany release their new monitoring decoder at IBC. The system is based on the hardware of their popular DAB+ Multiplexer.

The monitoring decoder succeeds the MAGIC AD1 that was aimed primarily at older ETI networks. The new system can monitor up to 50 EDI inputs simultaneously while also decoding 25 signals at a time.

“We had the intention of offering a scalable monitoring solution to give customers the chance to cut down on hardware while keeping management centralized. The decoded signals are available as Ravenna/AES67 outputs and additionally listening to the audio signal is supported in the web user interface. The new EDI platform still maintains compatibility with older ETI networks via an optional module.” says Lukas Mahler, Jr. Marketing & Sales Manager at AVT. “The number of EDI inputs and program decoders can be licenced in a modular fashion, so the broadcasters don’t need to acquire features they’re not going to use” he continues.

The new system is introduced at IBC and can be integrated into AVTs system manager for full integration with other AVT headend devices.

AVT showcases the new decoder during IBC at booth F76 in hall 8.
