‘A Major Evolution’ For WorldCast’s APT Range


WorldCast Systems, the supplier of radio broadcast products, has brought to market the newest APT IP Codec.

It’s being heralded as a big evolution, thanks to its enhanced APT range.

In line with the market’s transition to offer both hardware and virtualized solutions, the APT IP Codec is now available as a software solution as the Virtual APT IP Codec.

With this launch, WorldCast takes a hardware product for audio/MPXoIP program transport and shifts it to the cloud.

The Virtual APT IP Codec is fully compliant, with a High Availability (HA) architecture. “This shift to virtualization is also strategic in reducing the amount of equipment to purchase,” the company boasts. “Using AES67, the Virtual APT IP Codec can be integrated into virtualized studios and, as a server-based solution, removes the need for hardware. Broadcasters can easily centralize and transport a large volume of program signals, and have the flexibility to re-adjust their network size as needed. It also allows high-density encoding/decoding from a single server, without compromise on APT quality standards.”

The Virtual APT IP Codec supports APT technologies such as APTmpX, the algorithm for highest quality MPX compression, and SureStream, for low latency transport over IP. It can also be combined with Kybio for end to end monitoring, control, and automation.

Visit WorldCast Systems at IBC 2022 in Amsterdam from Sept. 9-12. The company can be found at stand 8.C58.
