Experience unparalleled audio quality and versatility with Bridge-IT II and Bridge-IT XTRA II audio codecs as they deliver flexible, low cost broadcasting solutions over IP networks. These codecs are designed to meet the demands of modern broadcasting and deliver affordable, reliable, and high quality IP broadcasting with:

-Exceptional audio quality with rock solid IP streaming reliability.
-Seamless integration throughout the latest IP network infrastructure.
-Multiple layers of redundancy.
-Simple configuration and control.

Unlike some low cost alternatives, Tieline’s Bridge-IT II and XTRA II codecs have a front panel screen for simple, user-friendly operation. Smartstream PLUS redundant streaming and Fuse-IP data aggregation are included as standard to deliver rock-solid IP connections. A wide range of encoding options is available, including the AAC suite of algorithms, Opus, G.722, MPEG Layer 2, Enhanced aptX, Tieline Music and MusicPLUS.

-Home studios
-Simple remote broadcasts
-Studio-to-Transmitter Links (STLs)
-Interstudio / Studio-to-Studio Links (SSLs)

Bridge-IT XTRA II is ideal for a wide range of broadcast applications, including STLs, inter-studio links, remote truck or stadium installations, as well as multi-unicasting or multicasting. The codec includes all the features in the Bridge-IT II, plus dual internal IEC power supplies, dual Ethernet ports and dual AoIP ports for AES67/ST 2110-30/ST2022-7 IP networking. The codec also natively supports Livewire+ and RAVENNA.

Bridge-IT II and Bridge-IT XTRA II codecs are backwards compatible with all Tieline IP codecs. In addition they include:
-EBU N/ACIP Tech 3326 SIP compliance with non-Tieline codecs and devices.
-Native support and compliance with AES67, ST 2110-30, Livewire+ and RAVENNA. Plus, Bridge-IT XTRA II supports ST 2022-7 seamless protection switching.
-NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 compliance.
By natively supporting AES67, ST 2110-30, Livewire+ and RAVENNA, the codecs integrate seamlessly into AoIP infrastructure at the broadcast plant. This delivers simple discovery and routing of AoIP audio sources and destinations.

For affordable STLs, the Bridge-IT II and Bridge-IT XTRA II support failing over to:
-An alternative connection over a LAN or attached cellular modem, or
-Pre-recorded audio files on SD card, or
-An HTTP Icecast or Shoutcast stream.
Both codecs feature automated connection failover and failback, as well as SD card file failover, making it ideal for STLs, SSLs, and other multi-unicasting and multicasting applications.

It doesn’t matter whether a codec is deployed at a transmitter site or a radio host’s home, real-time monitoring and management of connections is simple with the built-in Toolbox HTML5 web-GUI, or optional Cloud Codec Controller software. This provides peace of mind when a codec is hard to reach in a hurry. SNMP support is also included.
