In addition to its extensive communication functionality, the Mayah Communications Sporty reporter codec offers users an audio recording capability.
The Sporty can send and receive audio signals via IP/Ethernet and also via optional Wi-Fi/WLAN or UMTS/3G/3.5G interfaces. To guarantee connectivity even in situations with limited telecommunications access, Sporty offers an ISDN interface and support for conventional analog PSTN/POTS lines.
For live transmission, the Sporty offers MPEG-4 HE-AAC v2 and AAC ELD. Other algorithms supported include G.711, G.722, MPEG-1/2 Layer II, Layer III, linear audio and, optionally, 4SB ADPCM and apt-X/Enhanced apt-X.
Audio logging in MPEG-4 HE-AAC v2 and in conventional formats is possible thanks to integrated SD card or USB interfaces.
The unit has a large display, intelligent control wheels, programmable function soft-keys and full-featured numeric keypad.
