NEW AEQ VENUS N/ACIP RACK-MOUNTED IP AUDIOCODEC 13/11/2012
Following its constant commitment to innovate, AEQ presents two new professional audiocodecs for use on IP networks. The two units are completing the AEQ Phoenix Family of audiocodecs - the compact AEQ MERCURY and the new rack-mounted AEQ VENUS.
AEQ VENUS is a dual IP stereo, full duplex audiocodec system. With a single unit it is possible to establish two bi-directional stereo or four mono (to one or two different locations). It was designed to meet the international recommendation N/ACIP EBU Tech3326 and includes the option of an adaptive buffer in order to absorb network jitter, DHCP allowing the automatic configuration of the IP Network parameters, FEC and automatic reference clock adjustment in order to synchronize both extremes of the communications.
The AEQ MERCURY is a full duplex, Stereo, IP audiocodec allowing for connections in Stereo, Dual or Mono. The codec is exclusively controlled through a simple PC interface, allowing for the remote or local management of one or a series of audiocodecs. Its very compact design (22 cm (W) x 4,5 cm (H) x 20 cm (D) – two units can be allocated in a 1RU 19” tray) holds a professional audiocodec that is compatible with the majority of audiocodecs from other manufacturers since the unit was been developed in accordance with the international recommendation N/ACIP EBU Tech3326. The AEQ MERCURY supports SIP signalling and the most common encoding algorithms, including the proprietary AEQ LD and optionally AAC encoding modes.
Both units have balanced analogue Audio Inputs and Outputs through XLR connectors as well as digital audio AES/EBU I/O’s. The units are delivered readily registered in order to freely use the services of the AEQ SIP Server, simplifying the establishment of connections. The AEQ MERCURY and AEQ VENUS are perfect for STL applications, Radio broadcast networks, outside broadcast contributions or as digital hybrids for IP Telephony.
