APT present new product line-up for NAB

Codec manufacturer APT have a strong new product line-up for 2002 and will be attending the NAB Convention in Las Vegas to show the latest additions to their data compression range.
The Belfast-based company have enjoyed significant success in the US market over the last 12 months, which has resulted in the signing of important licensing deals for its renowned apt-X data compression algorithm with key customers including Harris and Scott Studios.
At NAB, APT will be unveiling the E1/T1 Multi-channel Broadcast Solution, which offers end users a cost-effective, low delay, high audio resolution alternative to existing technologies. The E1/T1 Solution is based around APT’s successful WorldNet codec range and its introduction supplies broadcasters with a highly featured solution that offers a five millisecond delay, end to end.
The E1/T1 also features full duplex (bi-directional); analog and AES/EBU (Digital) inputs and outputs; 32kHz, 44.1kHz, 48kHz sampling frequencies; 3.1 sampler rate converter; ISDN back up; alarm ports; RS232 and remote control inputs and outputs and 16, 20 and 24 bit audio resolution.
In recent months, APT has been involved in a joint venture with US telecommunications company, Pulsecom, to develop solutions for Broadband Audio transport. This year’s NAB Exhibition represents the unveiling of the first product from their partnership – the APT/Pulsecom Program Channel Access Unit (PCAU).
Optimised for web-based, broadcast and traditional applications, the apt-X algorithm results in near-instantaneous encoding/decoding and supports multiple tandem connections without the degradation inherent in other common compression algorithms, which lose as much as 95 per cent of their content after just four tandem connections. In addition to providing superior audio transport, the apt-X compression technology also results in secure, encoded audio communication links that protect against Internet hacking and public switched network access.
Other key new products in the APT line-up for NAB are the WorldNet Rio and WorldNet Milano digital audio codecs.
