A local radio station asked me to create a device, to monitor a IP-stream connection from a remote broadcast system to the studio.
The device has screw terminals for three leds. Those led's indicates several state's:
- No connection with the studio.
- Connection with the studio.
- Connection with the studio and we are live on air!
The core consists of an Arduino nano. The arduino sends a serial string to the streaming device, every 10 seconds. Depending on the kinds of feedback string returned by the studio, we can monitor the connection.
