A new phone application for remote broadcasting that saw its unveiling at the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas is now available for iOs-based and Android-powered systems.
Introducing the FieldTap app from Comrex.
It uses the Opus audio encoder to deliver studio quality audio from a mobile phone, with little delay.
Comrex says FieldTap is now available for Android-powered systems. The announcement came late Tuesday.
FieldTap is being pitched as ideal for reporters and street team contributors for short drop-ins. It boasts a one-button control screen and is a “simple SIP client that uses VoIP to make it possible for field users to send wideband audio from their cellphones over cellular and Wi-Fi networks,” the company says.
FieldTap is compatible with all Comrex IP audio codecs and can also be used in conjunction with EarShot IFB.
A new VoIP IFB system that replaces POTS lines and auto couplers, EarShot IFB was also debuted at NAB 2018 and is expected to be available for purchase later this summer.
EarShot IFB is designed for live ENG applications; it provides 4 audio feeds and can support up to 10 wideband calls (or 30 regular calls).
“With FieldTap, EarShot IFB callers can receive high-quality audio, instead of standard cellphone audio,” Comrex.
FieldTap is available at no cost from the iOs App Store and Google Play Store.
