Source Elements, a provider of software solutions for the Pro Tools environment, has signed a licensing agreement with algorithm specialist APT to incorporate the highly acclaimed apt-X algorithm in its plug-ins. A real time digital audio data reduction system, apt-X compresses with no perceptible degradation and a coding delay of less than 2ms at 48kHz.
Source-Connect is a Pro Tools plug-in, which allows broadcast-quality audio to be transmitted between remote locations. Affordable, fully duplex and high-quality link-ups between Pro Tools users can be achieved with the Source Connect plug-in over a T1, cable or DSL Internet connection. Source Elements chose to license the APT apt-X for its ability to preserve signal integrity while passing through multiple encode and decode stages.
