‘Building blocks’ for AoIP

Two new products, MM01 for AoIP contribution/distribution and FlexDSR IRDs for audio contribution via satellite and IP, are the building blocks of a system that delivers quality and flexibility in any kind of audio contribution application, said 2wcom.

The MM01 is a new compact multi-role box targeted primarily at STL applications. It is designed for versatility, providing advanced redundancy capability and monitoring functions, with the ability to integrate into diverse infrastructures. The MM01’s audio synchronisation, delivered to microsecond accuracy claimed the company, also makes it suitable for applications where precise timing is essential, such as SFN FM networks. Offering comprehensive support for audio codecs including AAC and E-aptX, the MM01 also supports dual streaming and Pro MPEG FEC – standardised mechanisms for overcoming IP limitations when they occur.

2wcom’s FlexDSR02+ and FlexDSR04+ offer a combination of capabilities in a 1U IRD for audio contribution via satellite and IP. The products feature versatile inputs for up to four different programs with analogue or digital output, a full regional insert solution, SIRC for in-band control via satellite, and automatic weight balancing of quality parameters and program source switching (satellite, IP-line, ASI, SD card) in case
of failure.

Also on show at IBC2015 is the FM2TS professional MPEG encoding gateway, an eight-channel FM to MPEG transport stream IP gateway. It can be used to provide FM audio to cable broadcasters, or to stream eight FM channels to a quality assurance institution as part of an FM monitoring solution. The FM2TS can also be deployed as a solution for transmission to gap fillers or rebroadcasting.
