Overview

The APT IP ENCODER Silver and IP DECODER Silver (formerly known as Stream-In/Stream-Out Silver) combine to enable affordable yet professional delivery of audio content over IP networks. Low on cost but rich in features, these units are perfect for standard broadcast applications such as STLs. 

Despite being one of the lowest cost solutions in the market,  they feature the renowned aptX Enhanced coding as well as linear audio as standard. The APT IP Silver devices also support SureStream for increased reliability.

SureStream for Broadcast Quality Audio over IP

SureStream technology is a revolutionary innovation from APT that enables broadcasters to use inexpensive IP links and still maintain professional broadcast-grade audio quality and reliability.

It delivers the audio quality and reliability you expect from a T1/E1 link at a fraction of the associated cost. APT SureStream Technology also offers the added benefit of «Always-On Redundancy». With APT SureStream Technology, you can save thousands on your audio transport bills and still offer your listeners the highest quality sound.

SureStream technology is available as an option on this codec.

Advanced Telemetry & Remote Control with ScriptEasy

ScriptEasy is the revolutionary facility control software developed by WorldCast Systems to give users the power and flexibility to create “Smart” sites; ones that can automatically take action to correct any critical errors that affect operations.

Featuring an intuitive Graphic User Interface (GUI), ScriptEasy incorporates GPIO functions, serial communications, logic operators, live user inputs, timers and more. This allows the site operations to be “scripted”, to allow evaluation of multiple parameters and even automatically engage backup systems, while simultaneously alerting relevant technical personnel.
