Quantum W Portable Audio IP Codec with 3G/4G bonding capabilities and audio mixer

Quantum W – From the new range of Portable Audio Codecs

Quantum W. Overview.

Quantum W is a smaller version of Quantum XL with 3 microphone/line inputs instead of 5 but with all the power of its bigger brother.

Quantum W inherits world-class IP technology from the Prodys Ikusnet Video Codec Family: Automatic Jitter Buffer, Adaptive Bit rate, Bonding of up to 7 IP links (Ethernet, 3G/4G, Wifi) for secure audio streaming with the best possible audio quality.

A Wireless Communication Module will be available with up to four 3G/4G data links with bonding capabilities. This module is external for better reception and versatile installation options.


Quantum W. Feature List.

AUDIO

  • Up to 3 Mono Audio Inputs available to be mixed, encoded and streamed in Stereo mode.
  • Supports Mpeg1/2 LayerII, AAC, apt-X, G711/G722, OPUS and PCM.

COMMUNICATIONS

  • Inherits world-class IP technology from the Prodys Audio/Video codec family:
    Automatic Jitter buffer. This adjustable buffer avoids audio dropouts in the IP connection.
    Automatic synchronization adjustment with the transmitter site rate, to give a constant delay in IP communications.
    Prodys NAT Traversal Streaming Protocol permits router firewall pass-through with zero configuration.
    Prodys Real time Network Analyzer to monitor critical network parameters in real time during the connection.
    FEC (Forward Error Correction). Up to 24 different schemes are available, to fit to the desired delay and available bandwidth.
    Error Concealment mechanisms on Mpeg audio modes are supported to reduce the impact of packet losses.
  • Bonding or Diversity with up to 7 IP links for secure audio streaming and the best audio quality possible.
  • 2 x Ethernet interfaces: Either to split streaming and control or for bonding/diversity 2 IP links.
  • 4 x 3G/4G IP data links with bonding capabilities. Internal modem or External 3G/4G module for better reception.
  • Wi-Fi interface 802.11b/g/n compatible Bonding with Ethernet or 3G/4G.
  • IP Compatibility: SIP/SDP/RTP/STUN protocols are supported according to the standard defined by the N/ACIP project within the EBU group.
  • Local or remotely (TCP/IP) upgrading of one or several units at once using the same utility. Factory software upgrades can be downloaded.

OPERATION

  • User friendly interface via touch panel, built-in Web Server or ProdysControlPlus application.
  • User Access Control to define different access restrictions in a per user basis.
  • Configuration presets to define different configurations for all or some specific parameters.
  • Alarms: Real Time alarms management.
  • Serial port to transmit/receive ancillary data along with the audio.
  • GPIO port: 2 inputs/outputs. User configurable with multiple functions such as remote contact closures.
  • Long duration battery with charge and status indications. It can be charged on system.
