New! MAGIC DABMUX Plus Monitoring Decoder by AVT

With the new MAGIC DABMUX Plus Monitoring Decoder by AVT, monitor the DAB transmission signal at any location in the EDI distribution network.

Monitor up to 50 EDI streams in order to locate errors. Fully decode an ensemble, with up to 25 programs being decoded and listened to simultaneously. The default configuration allows for the use of one EDI input and one decoder incl. service monitor, plus simultaneous DLS and SLS decoding for all programs.

An overview of all monitored EDI streams are displayed on the web interface. Listen to the selected program directly in the browser thanks to the service monitor incl. webstream decoder. An output via AES67 is also available.


Simultaneous monitoring on different levels including:

  • EDI input monitoring for up to 50 EDI streams
  • Ensemble and Service Information (ID, label, time, ensemble, load) for the selected input
  • Audio and PAD decoding for the selected service/sub-channel
  • Service logo extraction per program

Additionally, integration into a network management system is possible via SNMP. Monitor the system externally via the DAB System Manager (as option).

Optional extensions include EDI inputs (up to 50 total) and Audio decoders (up to 25).
Various modules include Ravenna/AES67, ETI (75 ohms) and Dual LAN (expands system by two 100 Mbps Ethernet interfaces).

The Flex 4K IN and Flex 4K BACKPACK provide 15W of extra power. This means the DC output is capable of powering a monitor, recorder and/or camera. In addition to the 15W power output, Flex BACKPACK offers an NP style battery connection. This camera top monitor recorder upgrade allows users to encode NDI, power the monitor and record simultaneously. The third model, Flex 4K NDI, provides unparalleled thermal design plus quiet fans.

Above all, Flex Family is compatible with any PTZ camera via HDMI, not just a BirdDog model. And it comes with free Central Lite NDI Routing software and Comms Lite.
