HD Radio™ and DAB/DAB+ Functionality added to ASI8821/8921 Series
Posted on Wednesday, March 6, 2013

 NEWCASTLE, DE (March 6, 2013) AudioScience, Inc., a professional digital audio innovator in the radio broadcast and installed sound industry, has added HD Radio™ and DAB/DAB+ functionality to its ASI8821 and ASI8921 tuner cards series.

The ASI8921-5500 (PCI) and ASI8821-5500 (PCI Express) contain eight tuners that may be independently programmed to receive analog FM, HD Radio™ (FM band only) or any channel from any DAB/DAB+ multiplex in Band III (168MHz to 240MHz).

"HD Radio™ is getting increased visibility in the marketplace and the multi-program capabilities make it a compelling option for many consumers. In Europe, Australia and various Asian counties, DAB and DAB+ continue to make inroads and are in some instances already displacing analog FM broadcasts." says Richard Gross, President of AudioScience. "We are pleased to be able to announce a product that we have had numerous requests for."

In HD Radio™ mode, each tuner can also decode and stream the HD Radio™ Program Associated Data (PAD) data and RDS/RBDS data for analog FM. HD Radio multi-cast is supported, allowing the audio and PAD stream to be switched between the Main Program Service (MPS) and Secondary Program Services (SPS) under software control. In DAB/DAB+ mode each of the 8 tuners can decode and stream a channel from any available digital multiplex including associated Service ID, Component ID, Ensemble ID, and available PAD data.

Recording formats include PCM, MPEG-1 layer2 and MP3. Using MRX, AudioScience's Multi-Rate miXing technology, each stream can be recorded at any sample rate between 8 and 48kHz.

The ASI8821-5500 and ASI8921-5500 will be available in May 2013. For pricing and further information, contact Richard Gross in the US at +1-302-324-5333 or T.K. Pang in Asia at +65 98184303.
