for broadcast use in Radio and Television, AudioTX STL-IP is an
easy to use, cost-effective solution to audio delivery over IP networks.
It is a new product that is absolutely unique in offering the same
quality, robustness and low delay as conventional audio circuits,
but with the flexibility and low cost associated with using IP connectivity.
STL-IP provides the perfect solution for audio over IP - whether
you need an IP based STL (Studio Transmitter Link), or to distribute
shared programming over networks, connect studios, replace conventional
permanent audio circuits or even for ad-hoc connectivity like Outside
Broadcasts/Remotes. It works over existing private networks like
LANs and WANs, Telco networks, Private leased lines like T1/E1,
Wireless networks (both professional and WiFi), Satellite and even
balanced audio connections and AES/EBU digital inputs and outputs
are provided on XLR connectors and, where required, the system can
accept an external wordclock signal, or sync to an external digital
signal. AudioTX STL-IP also allows for the transmission of ancillary
serial data and/or contact closures (GPIO) alongside and in perfect
sync with your audio.
unit can simultaneously transmit your audio to up to 6 different
'connections' and receive audio from one location. Each 'connection'
can be independently set to use TCP/IP, UDP or UDP Multicast networking
- sending audio to an unlimited number of receiving units. Mono
or Stereo audio can be sent in Linear (uncompressed) mode at up
to 24bit, 96kHz, or using MPEG Layer 2 and MPEG Layer 3 coding,
J.41, ADPCM or extra Low-Bitrate speech modes. Plus
AAC Low-Delay and HE-AAC v2 (AACPlus) with the optional AAC Coding
Pack which allows you to send Stereo audio from just 14kbps!
can also choose Enhanced APTx coding with the optional APTx Codec
FEC (forward error correction) and adjustable network jitter buffers
allow the system to function perfectly even on busy and difficult
STL-IP is configured via a standard web-browser on the network -
settings can of course be password protected. Once configured, your
connections will be maintained... in the case of network failure
or power loss, the system will reconnect when network connectivity
or power returns.
STL-IP-8 and STL-IP-16 units have multiple inputs and outputs (16
inputs and outputs in a single unit for the STL-IP-16 and 8 inputs
and outputs on the STL-IP-8) and these are perfect for larger scale
installations and projects, or just where you need to send and receive
multiple channels of audio.
