The Merlin Plus is an IP codec designed to be a studio-based codec that can be the wizard of six remote codecs at one time.
Tieline VP Sales Americas Mary Ann Seidler said, “The new Merlin Plus IP audio codec allows engineers to manage up to six simultaneous remotes between the studio and Tieline IP codecs or smartphones using the Report-IT application.”
The single RU Merlin Plus includes SmartStream software for reliability over IP networks without QoS, plus simple local or remote command and control, and recallable connection configurations via programs. It now includes the Opus algorithm.
Built on the Merlin platform, the Plus has dual power supplies, 3G/4G compatibility, Wi-Fi/WiMAX-compatibility, IPv6 and a full complement of codec algorithms — aptX Enhanced, LC-AAC, HE-AAC v1 and v2, Opus, MPEG 2, MPEG Layer III, Tieline Music and MusicPLUS, G.722 and G.711 algorithms.
