V-Quantum

V-Quantum is a powerful Portable Audio Codec with incoming Video stream monitoring and all the technical resources necessary for a successful audio contribution.

V-Quantum. Overview.

V-Quantum offers two modes of operation:

1.- Commentary unit, sending its audio inputs to on-site infrastructure like OB-Vans or IBCs using audio-over-IP Dante or AES67 protocols.

2.- Codec mode, acting as an audio mixer and transmitting two audio programs directly to studio using IP
networks (up to 4 mono channels).

V-Quantum can also decode H.264 incoming video streams.

V-Quantum codec 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, Wi-Fi) for secure audio streaming with the best possible audio quality.

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

V-Quantum. Feature List.

AUDIO

  • Upto 4  mono inputs available for mixing, encoding and transmission transmisión 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 with 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.
  • H264 video decoder for the reception of a video IP stream (BRAVE protocol).

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.
  • Local or remotely (TCP/IP) upgrading of one or several units at once using the same utility. Factory software upgrades can be downloaded.
