APT Codecs Used in ‘Toast’

APT Codecs Used in 'Toast'

APT said it played a role in this year’s “Toast of the Nation,” the first live national music broadcast from New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
As reported here earlier, NPR’s annual New Year’s Eve broadcast this year originated from Tipitina’s Uptown nightclub. “Toast of the Nation” was delivered in 5.1 surround sound and was a co-production of NPR and WBGO(FM) in Newark. KUVO recording engineer Mike Pappas specified three APT codecs for three audio feeds to Washington, including two WorldNet Tokyo’s and one WorldNet Milano.
Pappas used KUVO’s APT Milano for the primary music feed at 384 kbps, running apt-X Enhanced 20 KHz 16 bits. “I also used one of the WorldNet Tokyo codecs for the announcer feed at L-2 mono 128 while the other was used as a back up at L-2 stereo 128.”
