For years, broadcasters have trusted Optimod-FM 8500 to build audiences and ratings with its big, bold sound capabilities. The Orban Optimod-FM 5700i now offers the popular 8500 sound in a compact, cool-running 1U package at a more affordable price. The 5700i provides stereo enhancement, equalization, AGC, multiband compression, low-IM peak limiting, stereo encoding, and composite limiting—everything that you need to compete in your market.
More than 20 excellent sounding, format-specific factory presets get you started. You'll find all of your favorite 8500 presets here. Although the factory presets are fully competent “out of the box,” you can customize them with easy one-knob LESS-MORE control or with more than 60 advanced controls whose versatility will satisfy even the most finicky on-air sound designer. If you have created custom presets for Optimod-FM 8500, 8400, 8300, 5500, or 5300, you'll find that they import perfectly into the 5700i, retaining your carefully designed sound.
The 5700i includes a full-featured RBS/RBDS generator at no additional charge. The generator supports dynamic PS. It can be controlled via the 5700i presets and an ASCII terminal server that can be connected to automation to support displaying title and artist.
The front-panel display includes a 2x40-character LCD and LED bargraphs that show all metering functions of the processing structure (Two-Band or Five-Band) in use. The metering is always visible while you are adjusting the processor. Navigation is by dedicated buttons, soft buttons (whose functions are context-sensitive), and a large rotary knob. Ethernet connectivity is standard, as is an easy to use PC remote control application that runs on Windows XP and higher and that can control many 5700i units on a TCP/IP network. Additionally, programmable contact-closure (GPI) control plus ACSII terminal control via the 5700i's RS232 serial and Ethernet ports together give you total freedom to interface the 5700i with your facility's remote control infrastructure, whatever it might be. SNMP support offers yet another way to control and monitor the 5700i's operation via your network.
To protect your investment, the 5700i can be upgraded to full 8600Si functionality through a purchased upgrade kit. There's no need to remove the unit from the rack, and you will immediately benefit from Orban's state-of-the-art MX limiter technology.
