Codec hardware maker Tieline has announced a firmware upgrade for the Bridge-IT IP codec that includes the apt-X Enhanced codec algorithm as an option.
International Marketing Manager Darren Levy said it added apt-X Enhanced audio coding “because it is used by thousands of radio stations for STLs, audio distribution and remote broadcasts.”
Also included in the upgrade is an IP multicasting option.
“Multicasting is an inexpensive way to send unlimited codec audio streams from a single codec across IP networks that support multicasting and distribute program audio to STL transmitter sites, between studios or to affiliates,” Levy stated.
“The ability of Bridge-IT to send multiple unicast audio streams and now multicast audio streams from a single box reduces capital expenditure costs and lets engineers design flexible routing throughout rapidly expanding IP networks.”
The upgrade is available at the Tieline website.
