BE Unveils V2.0 Dashboard For HD Radio Importer
March 21, 2007 at 3:36 PM (PT)
BROADCAST ELECTRONICS (BE) is releasing a new software version for its IDi 20 importer unit that it says "literally puts broadcasters in the driver's seat of HD Radio multicasting." Version 2.0 enhances the unit's dashboard-like GUI with bitrate "tachometers," on-console audio level controls and other ease-of-use features for managing multiple program channels from a single seat.
Dashboard V2.0 also offers significant performance improvements and enables broadcasters to re-allocate channel bitrates on the fly -- no need to re-boot importer/exporter pairs when changing audio bitrates, for example. Dashboard V2.0 coincides with iBIQUITY's most recent HD Radio software release and will be provided as a free upgrade to all BE IDi 20 customers.
