APT will add to its WorldCast IP Codec line with WorldCast Eclipse.

APT will add to its WorldCast IP Codec line with WorldCast Eclipse.

The multi-interface, multi-algorithm audio codec is marketed as “a professional and sophisticated platform for broadcasters interested in migration to IP.”

The Eclipse has Ethernet, X.21/V.35 and ISDN ports providing access networks such as IP, leased line, satellite, microwave and dial-up. Broadcasters can choose from a selection of coding algorithms such as Standard and Enhanced apt-X, MPEG 1/2 Layer II/III, MPEG 4 AAC, G.711 and G.722.

WorldCast codecs support SIP and SDP protocols. The company says they are designed around a DSP-based architecture to ensure reliability and avoid instability associated with PC-based hardware.

Enhanced 16 & 24-bit apt-X are supplied as standard; APT says Enhanced apt-X is particularly suited to audio over IP uses.

WorldCast products include Codec Management System Software, providing remote control and configuration capabilities over multiple units throughout a broadcast audio network.
Also new at NAB will be WorldCast Horizon and WorldCast Meridian, both of which offer IP audio capabilities.
