    The IZT DAB ContentServer is a professional system for encoding and multiplexing audio inputs, supplementary information and service data into a common data stream for Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) - including DAB Classic, DAB+ and DMB.

    Operated as service or ensemble multiplexer, the system generates a DAB multiplex from all available audio signals and data services. Moreover, it enables multi-stream real-time audio encoding and handling of all standardized and proprietary DAB data applications. The IZT DAB ContentServer is based on highly available standard server hardware and on the proven software system from the renowned Fraunhofer IIS.

    Benefits for Broadcasters and Network Providers

    The IZT DAB ContentServer makes all options of the DAB standards family available. Different editions offer an optimal selection of features and can be extended easily to flexibly adapt to changing requirements. The compact DAB all-in-one-solution offers all necessary interfaces for smooth integration into the broadcast chain. The use of standard hardware and integrated audio coding bring the benefits of lower hardware costs, cost-efficient maintenance and a significantly lower risk of failure.
