Radio Data System (RDS) support

MAINDATA IP Encapsulator gets support for Radio Data System (RDS) bridging over the Digital TV networks.

ipe-rds-3

MD IPE supports RS232 input for RDS signal, on top of available generic IP inputs. Incoming RDS stream is being encapsulated by PES encapsulation into Digital TV MPEG Transport Stream. RDS can be thus distributed within Digital TV signal. At the receive side IRDs with RS232 output are used, e.g. OPTISAT S2/S receiver to terminate the transmission chain and output RDS signal to the radio transmitters.

MAINDATA integrated IPEs with Ericsson MUX and Ericsson IRDs.
