Like the other OPTIMODs, the 5700i provides a guided, systematic procedure for setup.
Factory Presets & LESS-MORE Control
With a selection of factory presets and the simple LESS-MORE Control you can easily create your own signature sound. Orban is happy to help you finding the perfect setup for your station.
Four Processing Structures
The 5700i features four Processing Structures which are Optimum Five-Band (or “Multiband”; 20 ms delay) for a consistent, “processed” sound, free from undesirable side effects, Ultra-Low-Latency Five-Band (5 ms delay) for environments where talent monitors live off-air and they object to the delay of Optimum Five-Band, Low-Latency Five-Band (12 ms delay), and Two-Band for a transparent sound that preserves the frequency balance of the original program material.
“True Peak” Control
“True Peak” Control is available for the digital radio processing with an accuracy of better than 0.5 dB. For typical program material, accuracy is 0.2 dB.
ITU BS-412 Multiplex Power Control
A defeatable, program-adaptive multiplex power limiter can unobtrusively control the multiplex power according to ITU-R BS412 standards.
ITU-R BS.1770-3+ Loudness Control
Loudness Control is available for digital radio and analog radio processing chains in countries that enforce a BS.1770 loudness limit on digital and/or analog radio broadcasts.
Low-Delay DJ Monitor Output
The 5700i offers a low-delay monitor output which takes the audio from multiband compressor output and has an approximate delay of 4 ms. This allows the talent/DJ to comfortably monitor the processed audio off-air with headphones.
10 MHz Reference Input
A 10 MHz reference input allows the stereo pilot tone frequency and digital composite output sample rate to be locked to a 10 MHz reference signal (like GPS), facilitating single-frequency-network (SFN) and near-single-frequency-network (N-SFN) operation.
The 5700i has a built-in full-featured RDS/RBDS generator that supports static and dynamic RDS values.
Bypass Test Mode and Tone Generator
A Bypass Test Mode can be invoked locally, by remote control or by automation to perform a broadcast system test or to compare easily original and processed sound. A built-in line-up tone generator facilitates quick and accurate level setting.
The SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) feature allows you to monitor your OPTIMOD’s status and to send alarm notifications via your OPTIMOD’s Ethernet connection to your network.
Remote Control or front panel operation
You can operate and configure the 5700i comfortably via the supplied Windows PC Software. Control is possible over your local network or the internet. The 5700i can also be operated easily by using its front panel and display.
Via a paid upgrade kit, the 5700i can be upgraded to full OPTIMOD 8600Si functionality.
