The BBC ordered 11 APT WorldNet Milano codecs for use in Radio 3 remote broadcasts in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
"The BBC required an algorithm with a low processing delay, and a resilience to the effects of cascading in order for live broadcasts to be continuous," stated APT Commercial Director Jon McClintock.
The WorldNet Milano uses the apt-X suite of compression algorithms, which he said produce low processing latency and resilience to the effects of cascading.
"The WorldNet Milano's resilience to the effects of multiple and tandem codings is also particularly relevant at the moment in light of the ongoing worries of artifacts in DAB and IBOC/HD Radio. These artifacts are introduced after multiple passes of psycho-acoustic based algorithms i.e. MPEG Layer II, Layer III, PAC and AAC," he stated.
