Axel Baracuda  DIgital MPX - RDS Encoder

Barracuda is a broadcast Stereo Generator and a digital RDS encoder with static services. Barracuda provides a front LCD screen that shows all the working parameter and a jog wheel/button to change parameter directly over the equipment. Barracuda allows to generates a MPX-RDS signal to feed your transmitter, coming from an Analog or Digital input signal. One more input is featured by Barracuda: to use Barracuda only as RDS encoder, and use the analog/digital audio inputs as secondary inputs and then place a new RDS signal.

Barracuda is the most versatile, cost effective and reliable solution designed for the broadcaster's looking for a complete equipment for a single, or a multiple transmitter-site data remote chain.
When you need an equipment that generates a complete MPX signal to feed your FM transmitter, or your STL link/multiple link, with a cutting-edge audio quality and a broadcast level RDS/RBDS encoder, you need our Barracuda.

Specially designed to be installed into master control room or remote transmitter site, Barracuda receives audio from a STLs or Satellite links, allowing an Analog Left Right balanced inputs, a Digital in AES/EBU input format and a MPX multiplex inputs, Barracuda encodes the audio incoming into a multiplexed output, to achieve a complete MPX signal over BNC connectors.

The stereo generator audio controls are featured with state-of-the art spectral and encoding performances: the digital modulation is generated via a DSP with 24 bits DAC @ 768 kHz with more than 100dB dynamics! The fully digital structure allows the broadcaster to set all the parameters via software with no-trim regulation over the equipment. Two operative Audio Control modes:
full-linear, to preserve the original sound pattern or by using clipper audio, to keep always the total deviation under law-limit.

Moreover, Barracuda provides a digital Radio-Data-System encoder integrated, to broadcasts station name and additional information. All the static services are supported and encoded by Barracuda such as PS (Program Service) also know as "radio station name", the Radio Text service to deliver information about the song's title and author, the RDS scheduler, to generate a complete scheduling of your "On Air" messages and the TP (Traffic Program) and the TA (Traffic Announcement) two features designed for road newscast information. Alternative Frequency (AF service) broadcast to the radio receivers, a different list of frequency where the same broadcaster can be received on different geographic areas.

The software to manage Barracuda comes with the equipment, to establish a communication with a ordinary Pc windows-based. Barracuda features a opto input for GPIn purpose and two Rs232 serial ports in Bidirectional mode or Unidirectional mode. This is helpful to connect the encoder with a satellite receiver that provide a serial unidirectional port, in this way so many Barracuda can be remotely managed in group or singly, to change Mpx settings or change the Rds parameters (ie PS name, RadioText information accordingly with the onair songs, Traffic Announcement status.. etc).
