    VDL New Sales Office
    VDL’s new office at CityPoint, Bristol will handle world-wide sales of the VDL broadcast product range, plus European sales of broadcast test & measurement products from strategic partner SM-CNS (Seoul, Korea).
    VDL’s product range includes head-end encoders, multiplexers, as well as systems for pre-transmission and post-transmission recording, monitoring and analysis.

    New remote data Server for PAD
    The new PAD-Server® from VDL provides remote insertion of Programme Associated Data (PAD) directly to Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB and DAB+) Audio Encoders.
    For applications where the Audio Encoders are not co-located with the Ensemble Multiplexer, the PAD-Server can be used to
    minimise network traffic by eliminating the need to insert the data via the Multiplexer.

    New Product Brochures
    A number of updated brochures are now available from VDL, including VDL Corporate Profile; Product Range Summary; ETI and EDI Distribution products; DABSTOR and DABSTOR-Rx. Multiplexer, Audio Encoder and Video Encoder brochures have also been updated.
    The new brochures are available in both English and French languages by e-mail request to
