The IP-4C is a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint audio codec that uses IP-based audio network technologies for real-time transmission. Based on the knowledge of the MM01 and MM08E and customer requirements, the IP-4C offers you a wide variety of functions and opportunities to facilitate your daily work.
Flexible in its application: The codec is designed for studio-to-studio, studio-to-transmitter links and cross-media tasks. Even synchronisation with microsecond precision is possible thanks to an implemented latency control (useful for simultaneous signal output of all decoders in a network or for audio description). In addition, audio streams can be combined into multi-channel streams. An optionally available FM tuner offers further functions for re-broadcasting or backup and re-broadcasting. The Easy2connect function provides operators and reporters with easy-to-use connection establishment (SIP phonebook) while in the field.
High compatibility: The IP-4C supports a wide range of protocols for streaming, control and monitoring (e.g. EBU TECH 3326, AES67, Ravenna, Livewire+, Dante, SMPTE ST 2110, PTPv2, RTSP, SAP, SIP, Discovery, Bonjour, SNMP, HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS or Ember+ and more). Additional information such as GPIO and ancillary data can be exchanged between audio networks.
Multi-format audio encoding: Another advantage is the variety of possible algorithms, such as MPEG1 Layer 2, MPEG2 Layer 3, most AAC profiles including the new xHE-AAC and AAC-ELDv2, OPUS, Ogg Vorbis, PCM, Enhanced aptX, Dolby Digital plus (on request) and more.
Streaming robustness: Dual Streaming and Pro-MPEG FEC guarantee rock-solid IP streaming or go further with Stream4Sure (the decoder is able to seamlessly switch between up to 4 streams with different audio qualities forwarded by the encoder).Reliable User Datagram Protocol (RUDP) guarantees maximum packet recovery with minimum bandwidth and low latency. Two hot-pluggable power supplies guaranteeing fail-safe operation perfect the whole concept.
