Codec maker APT has announced a one rack unit version of its Oslo codec.
The Oslo 1U is a T1 (E1 in Europe) and IP codec with a modular frame that can hold a variety of audio cards in different configurations. In a T1/E1 configuration it will handle up to 12 channels of mono audio. Using APT’s NextGen AoIP card, up to 16 channels of IP audio can be controlled. Or you can mix and match (though the presence of the T1/E1 card(s) requires a master control card) for T1 security and IP ease and cost-savings.
The Oslo 1U has twin power supplies for redundancy and also makes use of APT’s SureStream signal assurancy technology for minimizing dropped packets and solidifying connections.
APT’s NextGen AoIP card handles MPEG-I/II L2, MPEG-4 AAC LC/LD/ELD, MPEG-4 HE-AAC v1 and v2, Enhanced apt-X, and linear PCM 24-bit/48 kHz.
