Description

IX-IPL-100MP

 

The Intraplex® IP Link MPX transparently transports your FM MPX composite signal over IP networks Offering flexible sampling rates and sample sizes options for digitizing the analog FM MPX composite signal, the IP Link MPX codec optimizes IP network bandwidth utilization based on FM services being transported. IP Link MPX codecs are suitable for use in IP based Studio to Transmitter Links (STLs) as well as distribution networks. Support for IP multicast and multiple unicast streams enables one encoder to feed multiple decoders. By incorporating three IP Interfaces that can be used for streaming and management, the IP Link MPX system can provide a level of reliability not seen in comparably-priced codecs. As the latest addition to the Intraplex family of audio and data transport products, the IP Link MPX codec bring legendary Intraplex reliability to the IP codec market.
