Saving Time Managing Time
The 25-Seven Precision Delay addresses applications such as drift between analog and HD Radio transmission signals, broadcast repeater synchronization, and delaying programs across time zones. Precision Delay offers sample-accurate delay times adjustable from a fraction of a second to five hours, seamless PPM-protecting builds and exits, synchronized data streams, network accessible control, and 25-Seven quality and support.
Keeping HD Radio in sync with analog
With more and more vehicles equipped with HD Radio receivers, stations can't afford confusing listener experiences due to blending out-of-sync analog and HD Radio signals. Precision Delay connects to your Belar FMHD1 or Audemat Golden Eagle to retrieve offset measurements directly from your modulation monitor and automatically adjust your delay.
Take Precision Delay out to the ballgame
When sports fans listen to radio play-by-play at the stadium, they may not know if they are in the right ballpark when HD Radio diversity delay is running. Getting your station into "ballgame mode" means switching the HD Radio signal on and off without annoying listeners or impacting ratings. Precision Delay lets you smoothly build in and out of delay.
Your signal is more than your audio programming. Unlike other broadcast delays or systems that use pitch shifting, Precision Delay's advanced algorithms leave your watermarking data, such as embedded PPM codes intact during delay builds and exits. Data critical to your ratings and revenue are received and passed without loss of integrity.
Small delays: Keep boosters in sync
Proper time alignment is critical to keeping main signals in sync with boosters or other transmitters relaying on the same frequency. Precision Delay lets you adjust delays by increments as small as a single sample.
Large delays: Shift across time zones
For facilities that need to delay content by several minutes — or even several hours — Precision Delay provides a flexible solution with no spinning hard drives and no complicated programming. With "set and run" simplicity and flash memory reliability, stereo delays can run up to five hours and mono delays can run up to 10 hours.
Precision Delay provides email capability to let you know everything is running right. Set up is as simple as configuring a mail program such as Thunderbird or Outlook. Get status information on your mod monitor connections and other system alerts.
Delay Data & GPIO
Serial data over IP or RS232 such as "now playing" metadata can be delayed in sync with audio — even when delay time is in transition. Contact closures can also be delayed on input so that they trigger against the appropriate audio on output.
AES, balanced analog and Livewire IP audio
AES digital, balanced analog and Livewire IP audio are standard. Whether you already have an IP audio system or you want to keep your plant IP-capable, Precision Delay matches your signal path today and for years to come.
Control Precision Delay from anywhere
Precision Delay offers complete configuration and control over a LAN or WAN using a common web browser. Navigating though parameters is a breeze with our internal password-protected web server. The network interface also lets you remotely install software updates. Whether your unit is located in your main equipment room or at the transmitter, control is probably right where you're sitting now.
