Audio Channels
  • Multi-format 4-channel audio encoder/decoder 
  • Off-the-shelf option package including essential features 
  • Up to 4 digital or 2 analog stereo inputs and outputs 

Off-the-shelf option package: Benefit from short lead times and a cost-efficient ready-to-go configuration for your use-case! 

The IP-4c Basic Editon is dedicated for for basic Audio Codec Applications. It comes with a single power supply and can be equipped with up to 4 channels including the most relevant audio coding formats. The option package includes the Live Listening feature for monitoring of the audio sources and outputs directly over the web interface. 

Smart management: Configuration set-up via an easy to use web interface for general settings as well as for backup or fall back. For remote control, the codec offers various possibilities – HTTP, FTP, Telnet, NMS, SNMP. Perfect synchronization can be achieved by PTPv2 and latency control. 

Multi-format audio coding: Another advantage is the variety of possible algorithms like MPEG1 Layer 2, MPEG2 Layer 3, most AAC profiles including the new xHE-AAC and AAC-ELDv2, OPUS, Ogg Vorbis, PCM and Enhanced aptX. 

If additional functionality is required, please request a quote for the standard IP-4c Audio over IP Codec. It can which can be flexibly equipped with additional software and hardware components to fulfil more advanced requirements.
