Orban/CRL released Opticodec-PC Streaming Encoder Version 2.0, describing it as a mid-cost “SE” standard edition that also adds features to the professional PE and light LE editions. All editions of the software enable streaming providers to supply content encoded with the Coding Technologies AAC/HE AAC/aacPlus codec.
The SE edition is a Microsoft Windows XP/server 2003 application that can be used with Orban’s Optimod-PC professional signal processing sound card, or a Windows sound card. A console user interface supports batch file execution to enable launching and automation.
SE allows four encoder instances per stream, supporting up to 128 kbps using the aacPlus codec and up to 320 kbps using the AAC codec. Streaming is possible using the MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 standards.
The company also released its Opticodec-PC 1020 File Encoder, which it describes as MPEG-2/MPEG-4 AAC/aacPlus software for audio file encoding.
Opticodec-PC FE is available in three editions for the Windows XP/2003 server, all of which encode MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 files with aacPlus or AAC.
The company says the Enterprise edition is for users with heavy production requirements who may need to encode files for 3GPP mobile devices as well as the MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 files that all editions can encode.
The company says MPEG-4 and 3GPP support enable Opticodec-PC FE to create a file that plays accurately, while tagging options allow the encoded file to cause the title and artist to be displayed on PCs and mobile cellular devices.
