Client/Server Option for WiNRADiO G313/G315 Series Receivers

The WiNRADiO G3-CSO (Client/Server Option) makes it possible to remotely control a WiNRADiO G313 or G315 series receiver across all types of computer networks supporting the TCP/IP protocol, including the Internet. With this software installed, a WiNRADiO receiver can be remotely controlled and listened to from anywhere in the world where a TCP/IP connection exists between the Client and the Server.

Client/Server System

This Option is an add-on to the existing WiNRADiO G313/G315 application software and can install either on both the remote system (the Server) and the control PC (the Client). Because the Client/Server Option is an extension to the existing WiNRADiO software, the stand-alone WiNRADiO G313/G315 applications have to be installed on both the Server and Client computers before the Client/Server Option can be installed.

The Client/Server Option contains two different software packages which the user is prompted to select at the installation time, depending on whether that particular computer is intended to be the Server or the Client.

The Server software is a "plug-in" for the G313/G315 receiver application that runs on the Server system (i.e. the computer where the actual receiver resides):

Starting the Server

The Client software is an alternative "demodulator" which makes the G313/G315 application running on the Client application appear to work just as if the receiver was located there, even though it could be located thousands of miles away:

Starting the Client

A real-time audio streaming facility is also included, and relies on the sound card of the Client computer to generate the actual audio output.


Server Operation

While running, the Server application displays the receiver status, streaming status and the event log:

It is possible to run more than one Server (serving more than one receiver) on the same PC, with the same IP address, by allocating each Server to a different listening port, i.e. Receiver #1 - port 3300, Receiver #2 - port 3301, Receiver #3 - port 3302, etc.

The Server software makes it possible to select the optimum compression format for the streamed audio, as a compromise between the Client side audio quality and the network load.

The Event Log contains a history of all Server status changes, i.e. connection activity, audio format changes, errors, etc.

There are two graphs available under the Statistics tab; they show the amount of incoming and outgoing data traffic.


Client Operation

The operation of the remote receiver via the Client is very similar to a locally-operated G313 or G315 receiver:

To connect to the remote server, all that the user needs to do is to fill in the IP address and port number, and click the Connect button. Upon successful connection, the Client Demodulator panel then activates and shows the various controls, similar to those available in the standard "stand-alone" G313 or G315 demodulator, such as mode selection, volume control, spectrum analyzer display, recorder, etc.

There are two graphs available under the Statistics tab; they show the amount of incoming and outgoing data traffic. There are also facilities for setting the audio buffer parameters, which define the audio latency of the connection.

Finally, the Event Log contains a history of all Client status changes, such as connection activity, audio format changes, transmission errors, recorder events, etc.
