Developed for radio broadcasters, the Audio Pipe is a highly matched pair of (1) an audio encoder and (2) an audio decoder, designed to deliver very high quality audio via IP. The connection can be dedicated IP or well-provisioned public Internet.
The Audio Pipe's quality is enabled via the advanced Ogg Vorbis codec. Ogg Vorbis is a powerful new audio compression format. Comparable to AAC+, it delivers much better audio quality than MP3 and uses far less bandwidth.
The Audio Pipe is powered by Streamit® software. Configuration is done remotely with Streamit's web-based portal or locally with the free Windows® based Terminal Program. The user interface includes a task scheduler. Schedules can be sent to the receiver from a remote server, with tasks to be executed at desired times on a daily or weekly basis.
"The Audio Pipe is a high quality, cost-effective solution for transmitting radio programs to AM or FM transmitters, cable head-ends, or satellite uplinks," commented Laszlo Zoltan, Sales Manager for DVEO. "It can also be used to remotely monitor transmitted signals."
The Audio Pipe encoder and decoder are compatible with Icecast®. The decoder is compatible with SHOUTcast™ and Windows® Media.
The Audio Pipe features low latency. The delay between the transmitter and receiver can be less than one second, depending on the bitrate. The decoder also supports playback of encrypted files and streams. In case of unexpected network issues, the decoder can play a backup radio program from the SD memory card.
