Satellites have proven to be a reliable method of communication for distribution of CD-quality digital audio. The Integrated Digital Audio Distribution Network, of which the ABR202 is a key component, is a recognized worldwide standard for digital audio distribution.
The ABR202 is the next generation receiver product, featuring functional backward compatibility to the industry-leading ABR200.
The unique capabilities of the Radyne ComStream digital audio system allow a network to start out small (offering a single monaural or stereo channel) and grow to a larger multichannel system without replacement of receiver hardware. Fast, easy selection of audio channels can be made either at the receiver or at the studio uplink.
The combination of Radyne ComStream transmission technology and the latest digital audio compression technology (ISO/MPEG Layer II/IIA) achieves significant satellite savings (35-65%) when compared to alternative distribution networks. The Radyne ComStream digital audio distribution system also provides asynchronous data distribution and relay contact closures for control of external station equipment.
