See replacement model: 611 Streaming Monitor

(See Model 611 as replacement).

The Inovonics 610 is a dedicated hardware solution for uninterrupted monitoring of streaming online radio quality and performance.

Much more than a consumer-grade ʻInternet Radio,ʼ the 610 provides balanced analog and AES-digital outputs, self-logging alarms that constantly check for audio loss, stream loss and Internet loss. Online notifications alert personnel with e-mail or text messages when alarms occur.

An easy-to- use tuner decodes audio and displays live metadata for MP3, Ogg Vorbis and AAC formats. The 610 does not support HTTPS nor HLS.

The front panel displays left and right audio metering, local LED alarms and an OLED screen with jog wheel for advanced control and editing of all tuning and monitoring parameters.

The 610's Web interface allows complete setup and control of the unit from ane Web enabled device, and reliable 2-way connectivity is ensured with a built-in Dynamic DNS utility.

"It is more than just another Internet radio; it is a tool that we have lacked until now."
