The FM Receiver Silver is a professional FM Rebroadcast Receiver which offers great performance while remaining easily affordable for broadcasters. Designed by WorldCast Systems’ experienced R&D team, the FM Receiver Silver is capable of receiving a signal in difficult circumstances and outputting an MPX baseband or audio signal which can be used for high quality retransmission by any make of transmitter. This enables a broadcaster to provide complete coverage in shadow areas, tunnels and other “hard to reach” areas.

To provide broadcast engineers with complete peace of mind, the FM Receiver Silver will monitor RF levels and MPX deviation to establish the presence of a suitable signal and display the current status via the LED front panel. The presence of Pilot and RDS signals are also monitored and the PI code can be decoded to ensure correct program tuning. Level meters offer a visualization of the current level of audio activity.

Compatible with all makes of FM transmitters, the unit also provides a double MPX output so it can also be used in conjunction with 1+1 or Dual Drive transmitter systems.

Thanks to its IP/IO features, The FM Receiver Silver offers contact closures (GPIO) and a TCP/IP connection for remote configuration and SNMP management.
