The Q866 Internet Radio Transcoder is the perfect solution to include large numbers of streamed webradio stations into your OTT and cable networks.
You can include virtually any radio station in the world into your (local) cable network. 
It converts up to 100 internet radio stations (Icecast/Shoutcast) into a DVB compliant MPEG-2 transport stream.
The signals are available via IP (ethernet) or DVB-ASI.
Our goal at Qbit is to maintain highest standards in build and signal quality.
Low power consumption and the compact design in industry standard dimensions (19“, 1 U) allow easy integration of the device into your infrastructure.
Our embedded technolody avoids time consuming updates and upgrades. 
  • feeding internet radios into digital networks
  • Cable Networks
  • OTT Networks
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Cruise Ships
Management and Control:
The Q866 Enterprise Internet Radio Transcoder can be managed conveniently via the integrated web interface with all common web browsers.
The device can be monitored and managed via SNMP.
Configurable alarms automatically inform your systems about errors and events.
The basic setup and status monitoring can be performed at the front panel
