Product Details

MAGIC DABMUX Go RF is the smallest and only DSP-based Ensemble Multiplexer worldwide, thus providing high availability at an excellent performance. With MAGIC DABMUX Go RF RM it is now available as a 19“ version that can be mounted in a rack.

Up to 20 program providers can be connected via external Audio Encoders. An installation of the Encoders directly in the studio avoids effectively an interference in Audio quality because of Codec cascading.

Special value was set on the easy configuration of the Ensemble Multiplexer, so that even users without DAB expert knowledge are able to set up the system. The configuration, operation and monitoring are effected via a HTML5-compatible web browser.

The highly compact DAB Ensemble Multiplexers facilitate a very simple Multiplex generation in accordance with standard ETSI EN 300 401. Despite its size, all features such as re-configuration (manually and scheduled), extraction of Sub Channels of other Multiplexers, integration of PAD and NPAD data services, creation of Service Information etc. are integrated.

Audio Services can be supplied via the AVTMUX or the EDI(ETI) protocol from external Multiplexers. As output signal both Multiplexer variants supply an EDI signal for transmission to the transmitters.

With the integrated modulator, you can alternatively activate a power amplifier directly. This possibility is particularly of interest if you have only one transmitter site. The synchronisation is effected via NTP or via the integrated GPS receiver.

An external alarm can also be triggered via SNMP.

The system has a GBit Ethernet network interface, which allows the configuration of up to three IP addresses as well as VLANs.

Options

MAGIC DABMUX plus upgrade

The system can be extended with the features of the MAGIC DABMUX plus multiplexer via software upgrade:

  • Output: 4 x EDI (ETI) Simulcast
  • Automatic Encoders and Multiplexer Redundancy
  • 4 x integrated NPAD inserter
  • 4 x EDI input incl. automatic service extraction
  • Support of Service Linking, Dynamic Linkage Set Activation
  • Integrated PAD inserter: SLS,DL(+)
  • Connection of 25 encoders (with redundancy)

Emergency Warning Break-In Upgrade

The EWB upgrade, besides setting the correct announcement flag, enables the simultaneous replacement of all audio content by an emergency announcement. This ensures that the announcement is audible even with older receivers. One additional MAGIC AE1 DAB+ Go or MAGIC AE4 Audio Encoder is required as emergency audio source.

Cable Upgrade

An additional operating mode for cable networks is offered with the Cable Upgrade. The EDI input signal is analyzed. The EDI output signal can be reformatted, the protection level and the service label can be changed.

Redundant power supply (MAGIC DABMUX Go RF RM)

An optional redundant 230V power supply is available for the system.

Switch Redundancy Upgrade

The upgrade extends a redundant multiplexer system with seamless EDI redundancy switching for 2-way distribution of the EDI signal.

The function requires the MAGIC DABMUX plus Software Upgrade.

Redundancy+ Upgrade

The upgrade enables a 1-way EDI distribution. The two redundant multiplexer systems monitor each other so that only one of the two systems sends the EDI signal at a time. Both the source and destination IP address can be configured identically for both multiplexers.

The function requires the MAGIC DABMUX plus Software Upgrade as well as the Switch Redundancy Upgrade.

DAB System Manager Upgrade

The DAB System Manager upgrade allows the management and monitoring of all AVT DAB Headend System components via an HTML5-compatible browser. Currently the systems MAGIC DABMUX Go and MAGIC DABMUX plus are supported. The integration of the MAGIC AE1 DAB+ Go, the MAGIC AE4 DAB/DAB+ Encoder as well as the MAGIC EEC/SDC family will take place in a later release.

Key features are:

  • Common system monitoring
  • Redundancy view with manual main/backup path switching
  • Common log file of all system components using an SQL database
  • Email alert
  • Unlimited number of users with assignable rights
  • Central firmware update of all components
