WorldCast Systems APT Astral
IP audio codec
The WorldCast Astral will be the industry's first IP codec to also offer remote control capabilities and audio back up from a streaming server. This IP STL platform offers a full complement of professional audio delivery algorithms, including Enhanced apt-X, Linear, MPEG L3, MPEG L2, G.711 and G.722. It can then be tailored to meet the precise needs of the broadcaster wishing to build in extra functionality for reliability, remote control or compatibility. For added reliability, the WorldCast Astral offers redundant power supplies and a new audio backup suite. Should the main IP link go down, the audio backup package allows a station to continue to broadcast from either static files stored on an SD card within the unit, or direct from a Shoutcast stream.
