APT puts the focus on post production at AES Paris

APT (Audio Processing Technology), the Belfast-based audio compression specialist, will be displaying an ever-increasing range of state-of-the-art audio codecs and licensing opportunities for its apt-X algorithm at this year’s AES Convention in Paris.
Since last year’s MBO, the company has devoted considerable resources towards research into new technologies and innovative product development providing customers in the world of music post production and broadcasting with greater choice and flexibility than ever before.
The groundbreaking Enhanced apt-X algorithm is recognised worldwide as providing the highest quality audio and has achieved international penetration in the realm of professional audio. The ability to operate within bandwidth requirements, combined with a unique resilience to bit errors and with minimal delay means apt-X is ideal for applications such as; wireless headphones, wireless 5.1 surround and wireless microphones.
For AES the company will be presenting the Enhanced apt-X algorithm in multiple formats: Motorola DSP, TI, ADI, Verilog and ARM7. With potential applications in all areas of high quality consumer and professional audio, Enhanced apt-X licensing options will be available to third party manufacturers wishing to secure a lead in the market.
A tremendous addition to APT’s product portfolio, the new WorldNet Chicago Lite offers digital audio over IP for bidirectional stereo audio transport.
The WorldNet Chicago Lite features Enhanced apt-X to provide the low delay, mastering quality audio that post production facilities and digital radio broadcasters strive for whilst ensuring that the running costs of an audio network remain competitive through the use of an IP transport network.
In a convenient 1 U high 19” Rackmount unit, the WorldNet Chicago Lite boasts an intuitive, user-friendly GUI for easy management and monitoring as well as contact closures and opto-couples for remote status and alarms.
The WorldNet Oslo from APT has established itself as the codec of choice for multiple channel audio applications, transporting high quality content over an E1, T1 or IP link. With a unique feature set, incorporating Enhanced apt-X coding, the unit can deliver up to 24 channels of audio with real-time, near lossless quality.
New for AES is the option to transport audio over IP in addition to E1/T1 links for STL/TSL and studio-to-studio networking applications. This opens up greater bandwidth for the transport of true broadcast-quality audio and affords the user greater control and monitoring capabilities. The WorldNet Oslo’s new IP connection enables broadcasters to take advantage of the cost savings available on circuit switched networks as well as providing access to multiple transmitter networks such as STM-1, SDH, XDSL, Point-to-Multipoint and Multicast-streaming.
APT can be found at stand 2207 at the 120th AES Convention in Paris.
