Dimetis Software Solution Supports DAB+ Digital Radio At Hessischer Rundfunk

Dimetis Networkmanagementsystem (NMS) BOSS BROADCAST Manager® (BBM) supports the DAB+ digital radio distribution at Hessischer Rundfunk (HR).

Since 1st December the HR is represented officially with the DAB+ standards for its digital radio and thus the six radio waves hr1, hr2-kultur, hr3, hr4, hr-iNFO and YOU FM can be received digitally.

The software provider Dimetis with its BOSS BROADCAST Manager® forms the basis for a smooth transmission of the Hessian audio pleasure, since it combines all relevant components of the multiplex center in one NMS.

In terms of hardware the DAB+ ContentServerTM R5 provided by IZT GmbH, which is based on technologies developed by Fraunhofer Institut comes into operation. It supports directly the „Livewire“ Audio-over-IP format and combines encoding and multiplexing in one device.

A redundant 1+1 configuration allows an automatic replacement to alternative paths or devices, as well as a manual routing switch in case of failure.

Future actions regard a possible network expansion that perspectively provides two additional Single Frequency Networks within Hessen, which allows an extension to up to 12 radio programmes including additional data.
