The Intraplex IP Link family of IP audio codecs provides high-end features at an affordable price.
Offering an array of audio coding options along with IPConnect technology for data tunneling, the IP Link codecs are suitable for use in Studio-to-Transmitter Links (STLs) as well as audio contribution and 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 systems can provide a level of reliability not seen in comparably-priced codecs.
As the latest additions to the Intraplex line of data transport products, the IP Link family of audio codecs bring legendary Intraplex reliability to the IP codec market.
