OPTIMOD 8700i LT is a light version of Orban’s flagship processor 8700i. It offers the same versatile five-band and two-band processing for both analog FM transmission and digital media (DAB+/HD Radio/Streaming) This allows you to create a sonic signature for your station with the assurance that your signature will stay locked in, uniquely branding your sound.


The OPTIMOD 8700i LT can be also upgraded later on to a fully-featured OPTIMOD 8700i. This upgrade will add the DANTE AoIP interface, the Streaming Monitor Output and the Xponential Loudness™ algorithm.

OPTIMOD 8700i Audio Processor with Xponential Loudness™

For both analog FM transmission and digital media (DAB and HD radio/streaming), the 8700i provides 2-band as well as 5-band audio processing structures

With its Multipath Mitigator phase corrector, multipath distortion can be reduced without compromising the stereo separation. Orban’s MX limiter technology lowers distortion, improves transient punch, and minimizes preemphasis-induced high frequency loss. Other features include the Dante interface which provides dual-redundant AoIP with AES67 support, digital MPX interface, a built-in streaming server for monitoring purposes, dual redundant power supplies, and safety bypass relays for carefree 24/7 operation.

OPTIMOD XPN-Enterprise™ for centralized processing


OPTIMOD XPN-Enterprise™ is an easy-to-use, Linux-based, customizable processing platform for multiple broadcast stations or streaming services with centralized control. It provides Orban’s propriety OptiCloud™ processing for up to 8 FM and 8 HD/DAB+ radio channels plus 8 Internet stream processing channels for a total of 24 output channels all in a 1 RU package, using an enterprise-class softGear™ server and the appropriate OPTIMOD XPN-Enterprise™ Nodes. 

Content to be OPTICLOUD™ processed is brought to one location, utilizing any of the most common methods of audio transport – AES3, AES-67, SMPTE 2110-30, Dante or Livewire+, and creates the necessary outputs (analog, AES3, FM Composite, DMPX and Orban uMPX™) using the appropriate Orban XPN-Enterprise Nodes for distribution to each transmitter site. With this system, we offer a maximum of flexibility to our customers as the setup can be adapted to your individual needs and even changed or extended easily if required.

9300 AM Optimod



Orban's all-digital 9300 OPTIMOD-AM Audio Processor can help you achieve the highest possible audio quality in monophonic AM shortwave, medium wave and long wave broadcasts. OPTIMOD-AM delivers louder, cleaner, brighter, FM-like audio with an open, fatigue-free quality that attracts listeners and holds them.

More information



The new XPN-AM Audio Processor is based upon an AM-optimized version of Orban’s MX limiter technology that was first introduced in the Optimod-FM 8600. This revolutionary limiter technology provides an unprecedented combination of loudness, cleanliness, crispness, speech intelligibility, and coverage. Additionally, XPN-AM’s design incorporates everything Orban has learned in 42 years of AM processing experience, starting with the original Optimod-AM 9000 back in 1977. 


Compared to other AM processors, the ability of Orban’s XPN-AM processor to generate greater density with lower distortion can significantly reduce power consumption with Modulation Dependent Carrier Level (MDCL) equipped transmitters. Early field tests show upwards of a 20% power savings is achievable. Depending on MDCL transmitter settings, broadcasters can maximize coverage, minimize power consumption while keeping existing coverage, or split the difference.
