As a modular DVB audio encoder system, DAE combines one or several MPEG audio encoders with a transport stream multiplexer. Here separate audio data streams are combined to a multiplex and service information according to ETSI EN 300 468 (Specification for Service Information (SI) in DVB systems) is added. DAE provides the MPEG transport stream in DVB-ASI format. AC-3 data can be included in the data stream as private stream. Encoded audio data streams can be fed into the system via X.21, E1 or Ethernet by means of the corresponding input modules.

Ancillary data can be transmitted in two ways:

  • transmission via private stream embedded in transport stream or
  • transmission inside the ancillary data section embedded in MPEG audio data stream

System configuration is very easy with our convenient software.
