Description

The APT MULTI-CHANNEL CODEC is a compact and efficient solution for the transport of multiple channels of audio or MPX content over IP links. It can support up to 16 channels of audio within a single unit of rackspace - and even more IP streams when using multicast or multiple unicast technology.

Dante Interface module enables direct connection to Dante or AES 67 networks.

The 1RU frame can accommodate up to 4 AoIP modules, each equivalent to a stand-alone stereo duplex codec combining audio, dual IP transport and auxiliary data on board. It offers the entire range of audio formats and modes meeting the audio industry’s requirements: simplex, duplex, AES/EBU, AES/EBU with analog backup, analog with HI/LO or 600Ω impedance.
