Trends in Studio/Transmitter Links & Distribution
The STL universe has changed dramatically in recent years. One-way analog links have gone digital and bi-directional. Today’s radio stations have bigger needs: HD multicast audio, data streams to feed RDS and HD PAD displays, and much more. For engineers, that means a world of new decisions to make: How does the low cost of an unlicensed data link play off against the reliability of a licensed Part 101 link — and on which of several frequency bands? How much data do you need to be moving back and forth to the transmitter site now, and how might those needs increase in the future? What are today’s leading tech suppliers saying about trends in STL and distribution?
In this e-book we explore some of the choices and help you figure out what your STL future looks like. Longtime Radio World contributor Scott Fybush talks to industry veterans about the new things you can do with your trusty old 950 MHz link, the versatility and low cost of unlicensed connections, the attractions (and pitfalls) of using the public internet for STL and the brave new world of Part 101, as licensed links go all the way up to the 18 GHz range. And our manufacturing sponsors share their thoughts about cutting-edge installations and “what’s next.”
