The public Broadcaster RTBF in Belgium has ordered a complete solution for their upcoming DAB roll out. It’s a major contract containing 16 Multiplexers, 192 audio encoders, data handling and management systems, all in full redundancy. Paneda and its local partner Heynen will handle installation and support. The contract also contains a support contact with 24-7 support from Paneda.

The VMware servers will be installed in different locations ensuring full redundancy and the system is ready to use the new Paneda “Smart Switching” of EDI outputs, capable to seamless not only switching between x number of input sources but also correct the output streams from two faulty inputs, as long as the errors are different.
