Fraunhofer IIS has announced the availability of Version five of its Contentserver family, enabling radio stations to bring all program content to air quickly and efficiently.

It also integrates all functionality on the sender side, from the processing of audio and multimedia raw data to multiplex output.

Supporting a range of international broadcasting standards (DAB, DAB+, DMB and DRM including DRM+), the software includes real-time audio coding with MPEG surround support, standardised data services and all multiplex signalling options.

It also features integration of the latest standard extension for Digital Radio Mondiale (DRM+) for broadcasting digital radio programs in the VHF frequency domain.

At IFA and IBC, Fraunhofer IIS and partners will present the Fraunhofer DRM Contentserver R5 as part of a DRM+ live broadcasting chain with 5.1 Surround sound and the Journaline text information service.

In addition to the audio coding of DAB Layer 2 and DAB+ programs, Fraunhofer DAB Contentserver R5 supports real-time encoding of DMB radio programs.

For device manufacturers, Fraunhofer IIS offers the Developer Edition package, enabling the fast, effective development and testing of radio devices and receiver chip sets.

All members of the Content Server R5 family now feature live monitoring of transmitted audio and multimedia content, as well as generation of file recordings of the program (multiplex signal) and single-data channels.

Real-time audio signals can be fed into the Contentserver as digital or analogue signals, and in the Livewire format enabling smooth integration of the Contentserver into a modern IP-based studio infrastructure.
