The codec uses the same hardware platform as the Iqoya X/Link range, and features internal redundant power supply units.
French audio house Digigram has launched Iqoya X/Link-MPX codec. The product is designed for the delivery of an FM MPX composite signal to one or several transmitter sites.
Currently, most of the studio-to-transmitter links for FM transmissions rely on the transport of the baseband audio signal over IP networks. This requires the FM composite MPX signal to be generated at each transmitter site with devices such as sound processors and RDS encoders.
MPX signal will help reduce the number of required equipment at the transmitter sites, optimise the global power consumption, and maintenance costs.
Digigram X/Link-MPX supports both analogue MPX and digital MPX AES192, allowing analogue-to-analogue, analogue-to-digital, digital-to-analogue, and digital-to-digital distribution of the MPX signal. Optional µMPX compression is available to reduce the cost of transportation by using inexpensive network links.
X/Link-MPX is based on the same hardware platform as the acclaimed Iqoya X/Link range. It will reduce the operational costs at transmitter sites and optimised IP transport bandwidth.
