Grow with expansion packages

All Audio Codec Servers can be expanded to fit multiple use cases at once. Turn an OTT machine into a SIP hub, add transcoding to DVB, change a Loudness controller into a podcast processor – it’s like a matrix of possibility.

Which makes it an excellent choice for studios and similar environments. The SILENT supports up to 100 mono, stereo or multichannel programs. It can carry either one double-size extension card, such as 16 ch AES or 3x MADI, or a single extension card for DAB or ASI. Other I/O are supported via third-party USB audio interfaces.

The PIPE Concept makes audio stream and call configuration as simple as never before. A row of elements represents each aspect of the connection and coniguration is as easy as using drag-and-drop, while detailed configurations of the elements are available with a single click. Even complex connections can be set up in a few seconds and a minimum of clicks.

It is the simplest and most powerful way to configure your audio connections. Configuring and monitoring your audio I/O was never easier.

Note that a single PIPE can handle a mono, stereo or multichannel signal coming from one input and sent to one output. You do not pay for channels used, but separate connections made!
