Question and Answers
Question:
I need to ask about your 8 channel stereo audio encoder. We have a fitness club chain that is wanting to stream its FM Radio broadcasts to its members so that they can listen on our consoles instead of having to bring in a personal FM radio receiver. They have anywhere from four to eight FM stations (depending on the club) and we need to get this information onto the network in multicast so that an android app running on our console can find it and play it back. Of course, it would be even better if you had an all in one solution of FM to IP, but, the 8 ch stereo audio encoder is the hardest part of the equation.

Answer:
I think 8ch Audio encoder H-8A-ENC would be perfect for your application. We also have 2ch portable unit as well.
