Description

The APT MULTI-CHANNEL CODEC is an advanced, compact solution for transporting multiple channels of audio over IP links. Designed to support up to 16 audio channels in a single 1RU frame, this codec utilizes multicast and multiple unicast technology to optimize IP stream management.

Key Features:

  1. Modular Design:
    • The 1RU frame accommodates up to 4 AoIP modules, each functioning as a standalone stereo duplex codec.
    • Modules combine audio, dual IP transport, and auxiliary data onboard.
  2. Audio Formats and Modes:
    • Supports simplex, duplex, AES/EBU, AES/EBU with analog backup, and analog with HI/LO or 600Ω impedance.
    • Offers a Dante Interface module option for integration with Dante or AES67 networks.
  3. Performance:
    • Manages up to 16 audio channels in 1RU, with additional streams via multicast or unicast.
    • Ensures outstanding audio quality with low delay, and cascade-resilient aptX Enhanced coding.
    • Redundant power supplies and hot-swappable cards for uninterrupted audio.
  4. Control:
    • Features NTP System Time for program time alignment across multiple decoder sites.
    • User-configurable alarms for audio, link, sync, and PSU.
    • Compliance with Tech 3326 standard protocols, supports SNMP, VLANs, and virtual IP interfaces.
    • Enhanced network security with firewall capabilities.
  5. Savings:
    • Scalable and modular system tailored to various requirements.
    • SureStream Technology for reliable delivery over cost-effective public IP connections.
    • Seamless migration from T1/E1 to IP networks without changing the frame.
    • Optional Dante Interface for direct Dante/AES67 network connection.

Product Highlights:
