Get scalable radio processing, featuring the latest generation Optimod processing by Orban, for multiple services and distribution paths, including FM, digital radio, streaming, mobile and more.
The Radio and Streaming Audio Processor (RSAP) is a centralized, multi-channel audio processor for radio broadcast and streaming services. It provides world-class Optimod audio conditioning from Orban to create the finest expression of your sonic signature integrated with AES67/Livewire+ connectivity. Built upon the scalable softGear microservice-based platform, it is deployed through on-premise appliances with a migration path to cloud processing. RSAP is ready to meet the transmission needs of today and tomorrow.
The RSAP integrates Orban’s flagship Optimod radio processing for both analog FM transmission and digital media (DAB+/HD Radio/Streaming). Providing two-band as well as five-band audio processing structures, it gives you the industry’s most consistent sound, track-to-track and source-to-source. This consistency allows you to create a sonic signature for your station with the assurance that your signature will stay locked in, uniquely branding your sound.
Offering native AES67 and Livewire+ connectivity, the RSAP features fully redundant networking to integrate into your audio-over-IP radio broadcast plant seamlessly and reliably. The RSAP offers up to eight channels of Orban Optimod processing in a single appliance, allowing dense centralization of multiple radio services.
The softGear™ software media processing platform forms the basis of the RSAP. It provides the flexibility to adapt to changing programming needs through media processing microservices on COTS hardware and in the Cloud. Integrating best-of-breed media processing from Ross Video and Orban, the RSAP is can be easily configured and managed through a common and familiar DashBoard interface.
Audio over IP has been a mainstay in radio operation for several years, but to realize its full potential and to increase flexibility and reduce cost, there is a desire to move away from dedicated hardware and evolve to software radio processing. softGear™ Radio and Streaming Audio Processor (RSAP) delivers on this promise. A single RSAP processor offers up to 8 processing instances in a single 1RU appliance. This provides the capacity for multiple radio services to be conditioned in minimal rack space with reduced physical and power footprint. The RSAP accepts Livewire+ and AES67 audio-over-IP, applies the latest generation Optimod processing by Orban, and forwards processed audio to transmission. Multiple processing instances can easily be employed to tailor each program to the various distribution paths, including analog, digital and streamed radio formats – FM, DAB, DAB+ and HD Radio. Additionally, centralized management simplifies configuration and operation, which can reduce costly visits to remote transmitter sites.
