2wcom Highlights Latest
Product Innovations
With a proven track record 2wcom is an established worldwide manufacturer and supplier
of professional broadcast products in the fields of AoIP, FM, RDS, DAB, DAB+, DVB-S,
DVB-S2 solutions...
MoIN server software offers
audio services in the cloud
2wcom's Multimedia over IP
Network (MoIN) server software is a
containerised solution that provides
all functionalities that traditional
hardware audio over IP codecs have
implemented. In contrast to hardware
codecs the software offers vast
scalability options no matter, if it is run
in the cloud or on premise.
Thanks to its realisation as a
containerised service the operator
can make use of the pricing benefit
for containers compared to VMs on all
major cloud platforms such as AWS,
Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud. The
reason for the better price is that in
contrast to a VM containers don't
need allocated resources like vCPUs
or RAM - they just consume what the
need to. Moreover, the use cases of the
software are very different, examples
include:
*	 Icecast to DVB Transport
Stream Transcoding - This is used by
a number of customers who want to
make web streams available on a DVB
transport stream that can be sent in
cable networks or via satellite.
*	 Streaming Encoder - The
software can also be used to feed a
streaming encoder for example the
Wowza streaming cloud. Or, 2wcom's
solution transcodes the audio signals
to adaptive bitrate protocols like HLS
that can be distributed to the end
customer by using a CDN.
*	 AES67 to WAN bridge - With a
great number of supported audio over
IP protocols the MoIN can transcode
signals from studio networks that use
AES67, Dante, Wheatnet, Ravenna or
Livewire+ to a format that is suitable
for wide area networks. For example
the studio signals can be transcoded
to Opus for a low bitrate transmission
with SMPTE 2022 conform error

protection or using Secure Reliable
Transport (SRT). That enables a studioto-studio bridge that can overcome
even stressful network conditions.
*	 On demand transcoders - The
server software offers scalable
activation of codecs. This allows a
flexible handling of alternative audio
streams such as audio description of
a video, to guarantee accessibility
for blind and visually handicapped
persons. Or, if a contribution is
produced in accordance to the
multi-media method operators are
enabled to process the simultaneously
produced audio commentaries for the
video, stations website, social media
and the radio.
Business models like software-,
platformor
infrastructure-as-aservice have already become very
common. Therefore, 2wcom offers
regular upfront payments as well
as pay-as-you-grow and temporary
licenses to emphasise the scaling
capabilities of the software on the
commercial side. In addition, besides
supporting the virtualised approach
the MoIN server software is also
available for hardware boxes to give
technicians the utmost scope when
planning a new system.

4audio MPX solution Flexibility In Distribution
The company says, the new MPX
products offer numerous system
design options. It is based on customer
requirements for MPX generation,
manipulation,
distribution
and
economic aspects. To connect the
studio and the MPX link, inputs for
analogue audio, AES/EBU and Audio
over IP are provided. Whereby all
known standards for Audio over IP
streaming, control and status query
are supported. All main modules like
stereo generator, RDS encoder or MPX
codec are software based and easy to
activate. For operators, this leads to a
multitude of facilities.
Technicians are enabled to generate
the MPX signal to fit the station's
needs. It is possible to assemble the
whole MPX signal, including audio,
pilot and RDS for high-quality 100%
lossless transmission.
If bandwidth economy is an
issue the solution offers several
opportunities starting at the stage
of signal generation. It's possible to
create the MPX signal just including
audio and pilot. In this case RDS data
is forwarded separately or is only

assembled at the regional studio
located at the transmitter site. In
addition, broadcasters can choose to
use a compression algorithm for lower
bandwidth IP connections and narrow
band STL channels.
The opportunities at the transmitter
site are directly linked to the idea
of flexibility at the studio. Besides
just forwarding the fully assembled
MPX signal to the transmitter it is
also possible to manipulate it at the
receiving site. For example, splitting
the MPX signal into its components
and substituting the RDS data with
regionalised RDS information, if
needed. Or, the local RDS data is added
at the transmitter site's local studio
in case the forwarded MPX signal only
includes audio and pilot.
Moreover, it is also possible to
distribute the MPX signal via satellite
by MPE encapsulation at the studio
and by an optional satellite tuner
available for 2wcom's receiving units.
This is an advantage when satellite
bandwidth is more economical, or
coverage should be increased for
regions still lacking broadband IP.
Consequently, it is also possible
to establish source redundancy by
forwarding the station programme via
IP and satellite in parallel and switch
to the best source available at the
transmitter site.
Coming back to the innovative
modularly configurable concept of
the 4audio series. If the aim is just to
transmit the assembled MPX signal
100% lossless to the transmitter, the
IP-4c four channel codec supports
this approach perfectly. In any
case of signal generation or signal
manipulation, a product of the 4audio
MPX series has to be chosen equipped
with the respective software modules,
such as RDS encoder, stereo generator
or MPX codec.
