WFAS Uses BRIC to Air IP Remote

Comrex thinks it’s a first: Cumulus station WFAS(FM) in Westchester, N.Y., has aired the first live broadcast delivered via a BRIC/IP Codec, using the wireless Verizon EVDO network.
Station Chief Engineer Randy Shull plans to use the unit again tomorrow for eight hours for its “Stuff a Bus” promotion.
BRIC is the company’s “Broadcast Reliable Internet Codec” technology, which is implemented into its new Access codec. The supplier says it is the first codec to deliver reliable wideband audio over IP networks in real time.
Gary Kline, DOE for Cumulus, commented today, “I'm really jazzed about this” for remotes and live audio applications.
