One of the top-class equipment in the new WAIV family of broadcasting transmitters powered by Neetra is MERKUR, a unique solution on the market for the FM Radio operators demanding for top quality audio at a very competitive price level.
The extensive use of high-level Digital Signal Processing gives MERKUR unique features in the audio broadcasting world. The native AES/EBU input module guarantees pure digital quality avoiding the conversion from an analogue source and a legacy analogue input assures top performances even with standard analogue audio.
The FM modulation is implemented by an innovative direct-RF synthesis algorithm with sub-Hz accuracy onto an FPGA-based digital processing core. The result is a frequency-agile transmitter with immediate installation procedure, allowing operators to broadcast their audio content with excellent purity and maximum reliability.
