The SuperFlex Pro Audio Series features two models: SuperFlex Pro Audio with two audio decoders andSuperFlex Pro Audio XTR with four audio decoders. All the decoders have associated relays sufficient for an AM/FM co-location or AM/FM transmitter pair. Each audio decoder is independent of the other allowing maximum flexibility in data rates, codecs and sample rates: MPEG Layer II for existing DVB compatibility or MPEG Layer III or new High-Efficiency Advanced Audio Coding (HE‐AAC) for the best audio performance at the lowest bit rate.
The SuperFlex Pro Audio Series is specially designed to allow commercial/program insertion on any channel. Datacast XD client is used to download advertisement files or programs into the receiver via satellite. Copy Split permits real-time triggering of commercials/programming overlays on a receiver by receiver basis and can be done in an event or time scheduled manner.
Opal, short for Opus Portal, is an IP audio gateway.
Perfect for coordinating call-ins with guests who have no technical experience, Opal provides near-studio quality audio with consumer grade equipment. Guests can connect instantly by clicking a link. Opal makes it possible to do long interview segments in HD voice quality, without requiring guests to install apps or fiddle with settings.
Once installed, Opal serves a web page to anyone who accesses it through a computer or Android device (with a microphone, earpiece, and browser). This web page will allow a user to click a button and transmit from their computer or phone using the Opus encoder, for excellent fidelity and low delay.
Opal can support two discrete connections at once. Opal occupies 1/2U of rack space, and two can fit side-by-side in a 19” rack shelf. Connections to Opal can only be made from browsers that support WebRTC (Chrome and Firefox at this time).
LiveShot Control allows LiveShot users to Scan and Connect via W-Fi directly to a LiveShot Portable’s Wi-Fi access point to control, monitor, configure and adjust the unit in the field. It makes the process very easy by scanning for available LiveShot units, turning on your smartphone’s Wi-Fi connection and logging into the LiveShot Portable. With LiveShot Control, you can view transmission stats, quickly change profiles and manage network settings.
Comrex Device Manager 2.0 is a tool for managing all of your Comrex IP-capable equipment. Whether you own a LiveShot IP Video Codec, ACCESS or BRIC-Link IP Audio codecs, STAC or STAC VIP Telephone Call Management systems, Device Manager 2.0 provides a simple and elegant interface for updating, configuring and managing your Comrex devices.
After Device Manager is downloaded and installed, simply click “Scan for Devices” to find any device that is on the same physical IP network as your computer. Device Manager will find all of your Comrex devices and allow you to configure the devices’ IP Networking details, update the devices’ firmware, enable license features, copy and save configuration information and more. If you know the public IP address of a remote Comrex device, you can even perform certain functions such as updating firmware from anywhere you have Internet connectivity.
An IP Codec That’s Up For The Challenge
Content matters, but having the right technology is crucial for bringing any plan to life. Comrex ACCESS 2USB is a full-featured IP codec designed for the field. Rugged, portable, and versatile, ACCESS 2USB is equipped with a simple user interface perfect for the field. And with CrossLock and BRIC Technology, the most sophisticated network management technology on the market, ACCESS 2USB is able to handle even the rockiest data connections. Whether it’s a morning remote from the back of a bicycle, a drop-in from a crowded stadium, or a live news broadcast from a helicopter, ACCESS 2USB is ready for whatever you can dream up.
High-performance, low-cost, point-to-point IP audio codec.
The BRIC-Link II is a low-cost, high-performance solution for audio-to-IP conversion. Like its predecessor, the BRIC-Link, BRIC-Link II provides an elegant way of moving linear or compressed audio with very low delay. BRIC-Link II is simple to use, and can be deployed over a wide range of IP links. While it carries an entry level cost, BRIC-Link II maintains superb audio specifications and hardware reliability, making the system perfect for STLs and other mission critical applications.
Groundbreaking Talk Show Management System
STAC is a telephone talk management system that puts you in control of your talk shows, call-ins and phoners with great sound, ease of operation and scalable configuration.
STAC incorporates a pair of Comrex high-performance digital hybrids with automatic audio level control. The result is the most natural sounding telephone audio, even when conferencing multiple callers. A compact, rack-mounting mainframe houses the hybrids, the multiline controller and all telephone and audio connections.
Any studio that processes phone calls needs hardware to interface with phone lines. This device, traditionally called a Hybrid, filters, separates and provides gain adjustment and call control to more easily allow for recording or broadcasting “phoners”.
As telephone companies are shifting from traditional phone lines to Voice-over-IP (VoIP) systems, the devices that performed this job in the past are becoming outmoded. Broadcasters need a VoIP hybrid to ensure on-air and recorded phone calls sound as good as possible.
A dual-line hybrid, VH2 connects two VoIP lines to a studio for individual broadcast or flawless conferencing. VH2 prevents echo and distortion, and automatically adjusts caller audio to a uniform level, leaving you with a result that’s clean and clear. Plus, VH2 uses only VoIP phone lines, saving you money and increasing functionality. VH2 can even connect to many VoIP PBX systems.
STAC VIP leads the charge in migrating old-fashioned on-air telephones to dramatically clear wideband audio quality. STAC VIP smoothly integrates legacy POTS lines with VoIP technology to deliver a new way to manage telephone calls for talk shows, interviews, and contests. Able to take traditional calls, STAC VIP also breaks new ground by handling calls from “HD Voice” capable telephones and smartphone apps. Complete with the STAC IP Call Screening and Control Interface, the STAC VIP Caller Management system will even integrate with your VoIP PBX system.

FlexNsert+ DAB+ Distribution Inserter
The 2wcom FlexNsert+ DAB+ Distribution Inserter receives a DAB ETI data stream (according to EN 300799) or a DAB EDI data stream (according to TS 102 693). The FlexNsert+ DAB+ converts the data stream into a standard MPEG2-TS-signal and outputs it via its transport stream interfaces. Additionally the FlexNsert+ may act as timestamp Inserter for SFN Networks. The generation of timestamps within the MPEG-stream is basis for a synchronized transmission at transmitter sites.
