Exhibitor News: GatesAir

Booth N3713  Intraplex IP Link 200A is the first AES67-compliant AoIP codec from GatesAir, being unveiled at NAB Show.

The manufacturer says the codec allows broadcasters to interconnect studios and remote locations, including transmitter sites, using the AES67 standard and any of today’s encoding algorithms across wide-area IP networks.

It is a hybrid model that interconnects AES67 and analog/AES3 signals simultaneously, and enables conversion between those formats. With dedicated channels for both, the company says, users operating in analog or AES3 mode have a “futureproof” path to an industry-adopted AoIP standard. Those in mixed mode can convert between the AES67 and Analog/AES3 as desired.

“In any scenario, the IP Link 200A simplifies the cabling and removes limitations on location of the codec,” GatesAir states.

Chief Product Officer Rich Redmond said the codec provides customers with “a true AES67 audio over IP device that is interoperable with today’s leading audio over IP solutions, including WheatNet-IP, Ravenna and Livewire+.”
