AEQ released its Phoenix line of IP audio codecs, and is showcasing the two models, Mobile and Studio.
Phoenix Mobile is for portable use, and features a digital mixer with four analog inputs, internal Li-ion battery and a 12 V DC power supply/charger. Phoenix Studio is a 1 U rackmounted case with stereo analog and digital inputs and outputs, and a universal power supply.
Each codec has two slots for inserting optional communication modules. The company says POTS will be available initially, but ISDN, X.21, V35 and GSM are coming soon. In addition to the main program and return, Phoenix simultaneously provides a backup channel using the optional communication address.
AEQ also will have its Live and Arrow consoles for remote broadcasts on display, as well as the Bravo analog audio mixer, suitable for small- and medium-sized stations. Bravo features two program busses; four mic-line channels; eight dual stereo line inputs; dual telephone channel with integrated telephone hybrids; CUE bus with integral loudspeakers and headphone outputs; and an amplified monitor output.
