Z/IPStream R/2 produces the best possible streams by providing a multitude of streaming options for the broadcaster and maximizing audio quality for the listener. This second-generation Z/IPStream processor and encoder is essentially the hardware appliance version of the successful X/2 and 9X/2 software, allowing flexible, multi-format stream-encoding for up to eight audio programs in a single 1RU chassis.
Ideal for high-density processing and encoding applications, R/2 offers the simplicity and reliability of a single 1RU dedicated hardware appliance. R/2 is available with 3-band Omnia processing or full Omnia.9 processing, both featuring high-quality Telos® encoding.
Includes standard 3-band Omnia processing. Optionally use full Omnia.9 processing with up to 7 bands of processing. The number of audio processing instances that may be used simultaneously depends on overall system configuration and resource usage. As expected, Omnia.9 is more resource-intensive than the 3-band Omnia processor. The chart below illustrates the number of instances that can be run under typical usage scenarios. It is provided as a guide, the actual number may be different for your specific application.
Includes AAC-LC, HE-AAC, HE-AAC v2, xHE-AAC, and MP3 encoding at bitrates from 16 kbps up to 320 kbps (depending on codec). A program may be encoded using multiple codec formats and bitrates simultaneously. A special multirate encoder supports encoding for adaptive streaming applications. The multirate encoder properly generates the required Stream Access Points for adaptive streaming.
