Tiger Shark features every RDS/RBDS and Stereo Generator function a professional top-class machine is supposed to have.
Further to this, it has been designed to provide every custom requirement of a structured FM network, especially managing advanced machine control and signal changeover, due to a straightforward PC and web-server interface.
Tiger Shark supports the most advanced RDS dynamic services, including TMC, ODA, IH, TDC and EWS.
In addition to standard CENELEC methods, RDS programming has been enriched with larger PS and RT sets (also available in dynamic mode) and with powerful scheduling capabilities.
It is also possible to connect a GPS satellite receiver, such as our Sat Time Synchronizer, to broadcast local time info as part of the RDS data.
RDS service carries also 4 IH (InHouse Application) remote controls, that can be used to start advertising breaks on distant networks, to split broadcasting areas, to activate / deactivate recorders etc..
Tiger Shark communication features have been enforced with comprehensive remote-control via RS232, RS485, modem or TCP/IP: Its built-in, password-protected server is compatible with FTP, Telnet, SNMP, HTTP and UECP protocols.
It can be easily interfaced to hard disk automation systems and offers a elementary ASCII protocol for broadcasting e.g. song/artist information etc.
In case of alarms, it supports SNMP alerting for automation systems, and eventually SMS notification (by a GSM modem connection).
