Comrex is expanding its BRIC technology IP codec family with the BRIC-Link, which will be on display at the 2009 NAB Show.

Comrex BRIC-Link

The BRIC-Link is an “entry-level” model with fewer bells and whistles than the ACCESS BRICs. It is also designed for less complicated but possibly always on operations in remote or unmonitored locations. And though it might be less fancy it is fully capable of handling T1/E1 lines, satellite data channels, WANs and LANs. I/O includes 1/4-inch, 1/8-inch, Ethernet and serial.

“We’ve included coding algorithms such as AAC and HE-AAC, licensed by Fraunhofer IIS, as standard, in addition to several Linear modes to accommodate various data circuits and network connections,” Comrex Technical Director Tom Hartnett said. “The BRIC-Link also offers FLAC lossless compression, which reduces network bandwidth by 30 to 40 percent while providing completely transparent audio coding with no tandem coding effects.”

Comrex will be at booth N6729.
