CBC/Radio-Canada Extends RDS Coverage

Canada’s national radio broadcaster CBC/Radio-Canada has boosted its RDS implementation by installing more than 100 C02 RDS encoders. The C02 units deliver encoded dynamically updating traffic message information and other data to radio listeners nationwide.

2wcom’s CO2 RDS/RDBS encoder offers radio broadcasters the full range of features needed for any kind of RDS implementation. Compliant with CENELEC and UECP 7.x, it supports EON, TMC, ODA, RP, RT+ and EWS (Early Warning System) data. With its capacity for eight different RDS configurations, it can easily handle both national and regionalised programs. Multiple ports allow remote control via RS-232 or by IP, and the ARCOS configuration software makes it easy to set up, monitor and control, while the ability to save and archive data is important for performance verification and testing.
