AETA Audio Systems has added 5G capability to the ScoopTeam commentary codec, offering what it describes as a future-proof solution for both large and small stations.
With improved speeds up to 100 Gbps — theoretically 100 times faster than 4G — AETA points out that 5G is set to ease the task of the broadcaster and enhance the user experience. It explains that for the broadcast journalist, ScoopTeam eliminates the risk of losing precious time on connection setups, such as network bonding, even when working in crowded environments.
“After carrying out some in-depth R&D work, we’re happy to be able to offer our clients the most advanced network connectivity available today,” said Yann Vonarburg, general manager of AETA Audio Systems. “The fact that ScoopTeam can now embed a 5G network connection will result in safer audio links, even via wireless networks that should not be saturated anymore, greatly reducing obstacles inherent to AoIP connections.”
The ScoopTeam commentary unit also offers Ethernet, 4G, Wi-Fi, VoLTE ISDN and AES67 connections together with “AETA remote access” technology so technicians in the master control room can take control of one or more units wherever they are.
