The RDS Net application allows to send text messages via ethernet to more than one device at a time. Especially this application was developed to control more PIRA32 RDS encoders via ethernet. A subtle system of command queues and statistics is provided.


Several inputs are provided: Socket TCP/IP, Command line and File. The RDS encoders can be connected using any ethernet to RS232 converter (hardware or software based). The converter must run in server mode. The RDS Net applications may be chained (outputs run in client mode).
