Mayah signed a licensing agreement with APTX under which its Sporty Portable Reporter Codec will feature both standard apt-X and now Enhanced apt-X audio codecs.
Jonny McClintock of APTX said Mayah was the first codec maker to offer apt-X for audio over IP contribution applications.
The Sporty is powered by a Li-ion battery; it supports audio over IP, ISDN and POTS, and is secured with SIP/RTP over Ethernet or mobile 3G networks. Coding algorithms include G.711/G7.22, apt-X/E-apt-X, MPEG-4 HE AACv2 and AAC ELD, as well as linear.
Sporty includes a record/play function during transmission to and from the local SD card or USB stick storage media, which the manufacturer says is unique.
