The Fraunhofer MultimediaPlayer technology is integrated in RFmondial’s new RF-DAB monitoring receiver and enables the presentation of all DAB+ services.

The Fraunhofer MultimediaPlayer technology enables the presentation of all DAB+ services. It is integrated in the RF-DAB monitoring receiver, as well as in RFmondial’s logging systems. The extensive feature set of the MultimediaPlayer includes full support for DAB+ data services such as Dynamic Label/DL+, slideshow, Journaline advanced text services, electronic program guide (EPG), travel and traffic information, file transmissions and playback of audio services with stereo and surround sound.

The extended Professional edition of the Fraunhofer MultimediaPlayer technology, which is integrated in RFmondial’s products, is optimized for professional DAB and DRM monitoring and archiving solutions. In addition to the features of the Consumer edition, it natively supports the digital protocols for the multiplex distribution (EDI/MDI over UDP/IP) as input sources and the decoding of IQ baseband signals, as well as the display of detailed decoder statistics. On the basis of these statistics, collected by all receiver components, broadcasters are able to verify the transmission quality of their services by monitoring the elements carried on the various transport levels. The HTML based user interface of the “MultimediaPlayer Professional” technology allows for a simple graphical adjustment to and integration with the customer’s products, which can also be accessed remotely via web browser – including full support for the playback of all contained audio and data service components thanks to the use of the HTML5 standard.

RFmondial products incorporating Fraunhofer technologies are for example in use at the national German public radio Deutschlandradio for the transmission and monitoring of its digital radio programs and the sophisticated set of DAB+ data services.

The RFmondial RF-DAB monitoring receiver including the Fraunhofer MultimediaPlayer will be exhibited at the Fraunhofer booth B80 in hall 8 at the IBC show in Amsterdam, taking place from September 15th to 19th, 2017.
