Comrex said its new IP audio codec, the BRIC-Link III, is shipping. It launched in November after a preview last spring.
The company highlights this model for a more powerful processor and enhanced front-panel indicators. Four buttons will trigger contact closures by default and are configurable for auto-connections to other Comrex IP audio codecs.
BRIC-Link III includes CrossLock VPN technology, Comrex’s suite of reliability tools. Algorithms include stereo and mono linear mode, FLAC modes, AAC/HE-AAC modes, Opus, G.722 and G.711.
Applications include home studios, STLs, voice-over delivery, sportscasting and other situations that require point-to-point connections.
“With additional operation modes like HTTP and IP Multicast, BRIC-Link III can also function as a streaming server or send audio to multiple locations (depending on network bandwidth), making it an incredibly versatile hardware codec with an entry-level price point.”
It’s compatible with other Comrex IP audio codecs and works with the Comrex Gagl service.
