The new MM08E offers an extended application spectrum and is designed for contribution, distribution, in-house streaming as well as studio-to-transmitter links. 2wcom said the encoder features a complex range of system settings for managing multiple network interfaces, yet it is simple to configure via web interface or jog wheel.
The device supports all known audio coding algorithms (Enhanced apt-X, AAC, MPEG I/II Layer 2/3, PCM) and offers various control possibilities (HTTP, Telnet, NMS and SNMP) as well as a high standard monitoring and alarm concept.
One unit can generate multiple streams independently, and transmission of ancillary data and switching contact information (GPIO) is possible via integrated default interfaces. It features hot swappable slide-in power supply units.
2wcom said technicians can fall back on reliable and well-constructed redundancy opportunities (like Pro-MPEG FEC or dual streaming), and the activation of additional channels is possible by software update.
