TRANS

Transcoding audio, especially in large quantities, usually requires a hefty amount of hardware. Ferncast’s audio codec servers can be scaled easily to fit the required application with a single piece of hardware, which also centralized the control and monitoring.

Broad support of protocols and formats right out ot the box ensures that you get your desired output, even when you require many different outputs from the same input or vice versa. Consider also the various feature packages that may aid your workflow.

Powerful – broad format compatibility – fully standards-compliant

Transcode multiple mono, stereo or multichannel signals into your desired formats. The TRANS ACS Mini is a supremely versatile transcoder, covering a huge variety of transport and codec formats.

A single TRANS ACS Mini can easily replace many other devices in your workflow and The unique control scheme enables you to change your transcoding workflow on-the-fly.

R

Quick access via WiFi with QR code scan

One of the most forward-thinking features of the Audio Codec Servers is the option to quickly connect with the management UI using the wifi of your mobile devices. This is in addition to the regular network access. Things are sped up even further by using a QR code scan to access the wifi.

You can say goodbye to outdated front panel controls and enjoy an operation method that ensures you can use all of your audio codec’s functions without a computer and without any compromises. The same UI you have become used to with browser access can be used with your mobile devices.

R

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.

R

All types of audio encoding

An exhaustive list of de/encoder algorithms is supported. From classics like Layer 2 and MP3 to more current standards like AAC and Opus (incl. xHE AAC), even FLAC. Of course they also include Linear (16 and 24), G.711, G.722 and many more. Your desired encoding is guaranteed.

R

Reliable and smart

All our systems have been tested under real circumstances for 24/7 use. For even more safety, consider our packages for Smart Control and API. With these you bring your monitoring to the next level.

Mini

The MINI is the handy small size, low power consumption choice among Audio Codec Servers. It is small enough to be easily transported but still allows up to 10 mono, stereo or multichannel programs.

While the Mini itself does not come equipped with any classical audio interfaces, you can still use I/O besides AES67 and Ravenna 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!
