Is there life on Mars? Well, to date, there is no way to tell for sure. But should there be, such breaking news would spread around the globe at the speed of light. The fastest route for this hot radio program is for sure to connect FM transmitter sites around the country via a terrestrial IP network. But better have a backup on all the transmitter sites from satellites (the best view to Mars BTW).
Connect your FM transmitter sites with IQOYA X/LINK-LE and X/LINK-ST installed at each site. Each X/LINK decoder is configured to receive the terrestrial IP stream from the network on the first decoding priority (well, the news is hot!). The audio source of the second decoding priority is configured to connect the audio inputs of IQOYA X/LINK. A satellite receiver is also installed at each transmitter site, with its audio outputs connected to the inputs of the IQOYA codec.
Should the IP stream from the studio be lost, IQOYA automatically switches to the second decoding priority and outputs the audio signal received from the satellite. No news is lost, thanks to the satellite connection.
The IQOYA buffer receives the IP stream and can be adjusted to delay the audio decoded from the IP stream. Therefore, it will align on the audio signal received via satellite. So let’s hear it now, greet the Martians!
