In a significant milestone, UK-based broadcast and pro-AV supplier Vortex Communications recently sold its 500th Comrex ACCESS-IP Audio Codec.

The ACCESS sends live, very low-delay full-broadcast stereo audio over an IP connection, including contended networks such as the public internet. It can connect using 3G, WiFi, DSL and Satellite, and uses ultra-low bitrate algorithms to minimise IP connection requirements. Operation over a standard PSTN/POTS telephone line is also possible.

Vortex – which has imported Comrex products to Europe for more than 20 years – recently introduced its own V3X Intelligent 3G Booster to further help with 3G connectivity, particularly in marginal areas. The V3X employs patented antenna technology to provide a stable connection even when the nearest 3G cell is more than 10km distant. It has a cabled or n-WiFi connection to the codec, “making the ACCESS useful in places where even mobile phones cannot operate on 3G”.
