NAB Sneak Peek: GatesAir Adds to Intraplex IP Codec Family

IP Link 200A provides AES67-compatibility
By Brett Moss,

The GatesAir Intraplex IP Link 200A, debuting at the NAB Show, is the latest in the Intraplex line of IP codecs. The 200A’s mission is to provide AES67 digital audio compatibility.

A release explains: “The IP Link 200A is a hybrid model that interconnects AES67 and analog/AES3 signals simultaneously, and enables conversion between the two formats. With dedicated channels for both, users still operating in analog or AES3 mode have a futureproof path to an industry-adopted audio over IP standard.”

An additional feature is GatesAir’s Dynamic Stream Splicing technology software, “which mitigates IP packet loss and eliminates off-air time through multiple redundant streams.” In addition, “GatesAir’s integration of a firewall and advanced packet filtering capabilities strengthen network security, protecting against outside intrusions to ensure rock-solid, on-air signal protection.”
