Zephyr iPort PLUS is a networked multi-codec gateway that enables transport of multiple channels of stereo audio across any QoS-enabled IP network, including T1 and T3 connections and private WANs with MPLS – perfect for large-scale distribution of audio to single or multiple locations.

Zephyr iPort PLUS is the workhorse of codecs, configurable as eight stereo bi-directional MPEG codecs, or for decode of up to 16 MPEG-encoded stereo streams. Adding aptX® or using Linear PCM coding can enable up to 16 bidirectional or unidirectional codecs. Zephyr iPort PLUS connects to Axia® IP-Audio networks using a single CAT-6 cable for all I/O. Don’t have a Livewire network yet? Pair Zephyr iPort PLUS with Axia xNode audio interfaces for use as a standalone multiple-stream codec.

Coding algorithms include AAC, AAC-LD, HE-AAC (plus v2), MP2, MP3, linear, and optional aptX® Enhanced*. Bit rates range from 24 to 320 kbps for MPEG codecs, plus standard fixed rates for aptX and linear to over 2 Mbps. In addition, iPort offers dual, parallel-path end-to-end streaming for ultra- reliability and redundancy. For network operators, a unique Content Delay feature allows independent local storage and scheduled delayed playout of any or all coded audio channels for up to six hours.

 

  • Distributes multiple channels of coded audio between broadcast facilities over QoS-enabled IP links.

  • Configurable as a CODEC with 8 bi-directional MPEG-coded channels, each with GPIO and PAD — or, as a 16-channel stereo encoder (by adding aptX and/or Linear PCM-coded channels) or 16-channel stereo decoder.

  • PCM Stereo coded channels are available for use simultaneously alongside MPEG coded channels, (dependent upon available bandwidth).

  • Can also deliver streaming audio channels for Internet transmission via SHOUTcast, Steamcast or compatible stream replication server.

  • Wide choice of genuine Fraunhofer codecs, including Standard AAC, high-efficiency AAC-HE (aacPlus), AAC-HEv2, low-delay AAC-LD, and MP3, with a choice of bit rates from 24 kbps to 320 kbps, definable per stream.

  • Optional aptX® Enhanced audio coding may be ordered at time of purchase or added later, as desired.

  • When used as part of a Livewire network, allows audio from remote facilities to be used as if they were local sources, with associated logic and control.

  • Eight 5-input Virtual Mixer (VMIX) channels each allow combining and mixing of up to 5 networked Livewire audio streams on a single channel.

  • Eight Virtual Mode (VMODE) channels allow audio to be split into left/right channels, summed L+R, and more, prior to encoding and transmission.

  • Content Delay option enables delayed playout of any or all selected receive audio channels, along with time-synchronized ancillary data, for up to six hours. Each playback delay time is independently configurable on a per-channel basis, making Zephyr iPort PLUS ideal for network operators, program distribution networks, or delayed playout of received audio at network-affiliated stations.

  • Remote control/configuration via any computer with a standard Web browser.

  • Separate LAN and WAN ports help ensure network security.

  • Fanless, convection-cooled DSP-powered platform with dual-redundant, auto-switching power supplies for maximum uptime. Power supply modules are field-replaceable in minutes.
