2wcom will be highlighting its new MM04C AoIP codec at IBC2018. The company says the unit is a one-stop-solution based on the know-how it has gained from work on the MM01 AoIP codec and MM08E encoder.
Developed for STL and SSL applications, the MM04C is specifically designed to ease the broadcaster’s increasing daily cross-media tasks.
Equipped with four channels, the point-to-point or point-to-multipoint codec offers compatibility to all interfaces and supports a range of protocols for streaming, control and status. These include EBU Tech 3326, AES67, Ravenna, Livewire+, Dante, SMPTE ST 2110, PTPv2, RTSP, SAP, SIP, Discovery, Bonjour, SNMP, HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS and Ember+.
Furthermore, the exchange of additional information such as GPIO and ancillary data between the audio networks is possible. The MM04C can also implement a variety of algorithms such as MPEG and AAC (extended HE xHE, OPUS, OGG Vorbis, Enhanced aptX, Dolby digital plus and PCM). The unit lets users combine audio streams to multichannel streams with one device able to generate multiple streams independently.
According to the company, all features and applications are cost-efficient and configurable via software. The MM04C can integrate into existing systems and third party applications. The MM04C is equipped with a redundancy concept, which includes individual configuration of alternative input sources, Pro MPEG-FEC, Dual Streaming and Stream4Sure.
