Gateway 4

Introducing the New Generation 4 Channel IP Audio Codec

The Gateway 4 is a powerful DSP-based 1RU IP codec designed for live remote broadcasting applications, as well as STL or SSL links. The Gateway 4 enables transport of multiple channels of mono or stereo audio across the Public Internet or any QoS-enabled IP network, including T1 and T3 connections and private WANs with MPLS. The Gateway includes support for AES67, ST 2110-30, AES3 and analog I/O as standard.
