MAGIC AE1 DAB+ Go Audio Encoder


The high quality and professional DSP-based hardware audio encoder MAGIC AE1 DAB+ Go is realized as a fanless ½ x 19‘‘ device and offers excellent audio quality thanks to the licenced Fraunhofer DAB+ algorithm.

The supplied Windows software allows the configuration of up to 40 systems.

Both analog and digital audio interfaces are available for the input of the audio signal.

In addition to the usual PAD feed via the multiplexer – which supports all standardized services – the PAD services Dynamic Label via FTP or UECP and Slideshow via FTP can also be fed in locally on the device.

In addition, a traffic announcement (TA) can be triggered very easily via UECP or a GPI contact.

Finally, the Audio Encoder allows direct transmission of the program type (PTy) like Rock, Pop etc. via UECP.

The transmission is monitored via the supplied Windows PC software or SNMP. Alternatively, an alarm can also be output via a GPO contact.

Up to three IP addresses can be assigned to the integrated network interface, so that a network separation for different applications is possible. The system also supports VLANs.

Communication between multiplexer and encoder is carried out via the AVTMUX protocol, which enables the control, monitoring and PAD transmission of the encoders from the multiplexer and guarantees secure transmission via Secure Streaming.

With this method, which has also proved its worth in the field of classical audio transmission, all IP packets are transmitted twice – with a delay. Due to the low bit rates with DAB+, the necessary doubling of the data rate is negligible. In addition, different routes can be implemented in the transmission path by using suitable addressing.

At the multiplexer (MAGIC DABMUX Go and MAGIC DABMUX Plus) all IP packets are reassembled correctly in time and duplicate received packets are rejected.

The system can also be used directly with the Open Source Multiplexer ODR DabMux. The necessary interface adaptations are available free of charge on the GitHub platform.
