Telos Alliance has introduced a high-density version of its iPort, calling it a multi-codec gateway that lets broadcasters license up to 64 codecs in one rack unit.
“Worldwide networks use iPort for both distribution and contribution, spanning multiple time zones,” the company explained in its announcement.
“Now, the iPort legacy continues with the more powerful iPort High Density, which transports multiple channels of stereo, mono and dual-mono audio across IP networks, including private WANs, IP-radio links and over good quality public internet connections, perfect for large-scale distribution of audio to single or multiple locations.”
The iPort High Density comes with eight bidirectional stereo codecs, configurable to run in MPEG or Linear PCM mode.
“Broadcasters can license additional codecs up to a maximum of 64, as well as add Enhanced aptX encoding.”
The box connects to existing Livewire networks using one ethernet cable (CAT-6 recommended) for all I/O. It can also pair with Telos Alliance xNodes via an adequately configured ethernet switch for use as a standalone multi-stream codec.
