Harris expands Intraplex audio transport product range with new codec

Scaled-down version of NetXpress platform for radio broadcasters aimed at point-to-point program delivery

By CBR Staff Writer

Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, is expanding its Intraplex range of audio transport products for the radio broadcast market with the introduction of Intraplex NetXpress LX audio codec.

Based on the original NetXpress platform, NetXpress LX reportedly offers full-time, mission-critical audio transport for point-to-point applications including STL delivery and studio-to-studio links in a cost-efficient, compact package.

According tothe company, Intraplex NetXpress LX, equipped to carry up to four bidirectional stereo audio streams, is capable of creating a segregated ethernet path for HD Radio program transport and carrying traditional off-premise extension voice channels alongside program audio.

Harris claims that NetXpress LX offers features for reliable IP audio transport, including low processing delay, adjustable packet size, programmable jitter buffer depth, advanced Intraplex forward error correction, quality-of-service priority tagging, unidirectional or bidirectional unicast streaming, and unidirectional multicast streaming.

Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications, said: The audio transport market in the radio broadcast industry has been moving steadily from legacy TDM services to IP-based services.

Harris has filled the high-end sector of this market with NetXpress, building a reputation for reliability in complex, geographically widespread IP audio networks. We are now bringing the same quality of service to broadcasters that are migrating to IP with more straightforward audio transport requirements.
