Quad Channel HD Radio Tuner Adapter Ready for Market

NEWCASTLE, DE (September 22, 2009) – AudioScience, a maker of professional audio peripherals for the broadcast and entertainment industries, has received certification from iBiquity for their ASI8914; a four channel HD Radio tuner adapter.

The ASI8914 is a universal PCI card that contains four HD Radio/AM/FM tuners. Each tuner may be set to an independent analog or HD Radio station. The audio from each tuner is presented to the computer host as a mono or stereo record stream which may be accessed through a 32bit PCI bus master interface. Each tuner can also decode and stream the HD Radio Program Associated Data (PAD) data and RDS/RDBS data for analog FM. HD Radio multi-cast is supported, allowing the audio and PAD stream to be switched between the Main Program Service (MPS) and Secondary Program Services (SPS) under software control.

"The ASI8914's certification is very timely; the HD Radio market has grown immensely since we first introduced our HD Radio-capable tuner card", says Richard Gross, president of AudioScience.

An F connector feeds RF signal from an external antenna to all tuners on the ASI8914. Each tuner may also be fed from an external antenna input. An HD50 connector makes available the mono or stereo line level audio of each tuner output. Recording formats include PCM, MPEG-1 layer2 and MP3. Using MRX, AudioScience's Multi-Rate miXing technology, each stream can be recorded at any sample rate between 8 and 48kHz.
