This hardware component supports the deployment of Digital Audio Broadcasting based technology in a computer system environment. Implementing this technology allows the device driver to support error correction, modulation coding, and source coding technologies among others. The DAB-USB Receiver is used to activate high speed data broadcasting processes with a CD quality audio reproduction. This technology has been adopted by some radio stations particularly in the European region. These radio stations have began broadcasting using digital data as compared to the conventional analog audio signals. The device driver also makes use of the MPEG-1 Audio Layer II interface for the reproduction of audio data. This particular codec type must be present in the host computer system to allow the efficient operation of the Digital Audio Broadcasting capable device. These digital audio signals can be recorded and stored in the host computer system provided that the proper hardware and software components are present.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The DAB-USB Receiver connects directly to the Universal Serial Bus interface of the host computer system to avail of the faster data transfer rate capability of the communication port. When connected to the host machine the computer user will be prompted for the installation of the appropriate device driver to make it both functional and operational. There are so far no generic device drivers that are bundled with current operating system platforms that can make the Digital Audio Broadcasting hardware component functional. When properly installed into the host computer system the device driver will allow for crystal clear reception as well as downloading and recording of radio broadcasts. The technology behind this audio hardware component makes it possible to drag and drop digital radio broadcasts into mobile audio players. The device driver can also work in conjunction with the current device driver for the audio card of the host computer system. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DAB-USB Receiver errors before installing any driver updates.
