Broadcasters have long dreamed of complete flexibility and ultimate mobility for remote broadcasts without having to lug around unwieldy racks of gear or clumsy setups too difficult to configure in the field. ACCESS PORTABLE delivers in a sleek, compact, handheld unit capable of sending mono, stereo or dual mono audio over POTS, DSL, Cable, Wi-Fi, 3G cellular (EVDO/UMTS), satellite - plus some services you may not have even heard of.
ACCESS will work on a wide variety of wired and wireless data circuits, including:
- Wired Ethernet Networks - Cable, DSL, T1, T3, etc.
- Wireless Networks - 802.11b,g,n WiFi
- 3G / 4G Cellular Data Networks - EVDO, UMTS, WiMax
- Satellite Terminals
- POTS Analog Telephone Lines
- Public Internet - Uses Revolutionary BRIC Technology, designed to overcome the innate unreliability of the public Internet
ACCESS is also a full-featured POTS codec:
- Use ACCESS to make a POTS-to-POTS connection. Dial up a Comrex POTS codec (including Matrix, Vector or BlueBox).
- You can deliver 15 kHz Stereo on a single POTS line when connecting to another ACCESS.
BRIC technology can also deliver wideband audio over 3G cellular data networks like EVDO and UMTS, as well as the increasing number of publicly available Wi-Fi hotspots. ACCESS Portable has a built-in CardBus slot for easy connection to data cards supporting these services. For a list of tested 3G wireless cards, click here.
No IT Guy Needed
OK, that may be overstating the case a little bit, but there has never been an IP codec as easy to use as ACCESS. ACCESS Portable is designed for fast and easy connections, no matter what kind of IP circuit you have available. The integrated PDA-style screen will guide even your most "non-technical" user through the simple steps required to connect. And even if that proves too challenging, ACCESS Portable can be preconfigured to auto connect on "power up" thereby minimizing setup time in the field.
ACCESS—The Smart Codec
Using BRIC technology means you won't have to mess with ACCESS advanced settings. The sophisticated engine of ACCESS is clever enough to assess circuit conditions and adapt on the fly without user intervention. ACCESS is constantly working to compensate for deficits in the quality of service, so no one has to hear how bad the public Internet can be. For the technically advanced, the menus are there. So, if you are a power user, you can configure ACCESS to be whatever you need. You can increase the delay cushion or twiddle the "frames per packet" to your heart's content. But isn't it great to know that you probably will never need to? ACCESS—The Powerful Codec Whatever the audio transmission job, whatever the circuit, ACCESS has a mode for you. From linear mono or stereo audio to an ultra-low bit rate algorithm, there is a wide range of audio choices to fit virtually any programming need.
