So your radio station sends you to the middle of nowhere....what do they give you to get the story back to the studio?
The Commander G3 field codec (coder/decoder) claims to be the first unit of its kind to combine a choice of POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service), ISDN and GSM (mobile)codecs with an 11x6 Digital Cross Point Audio Router and Digital Audio Mixer. This means you can customize your audio codec to suit your exact needs in a few easy steps, only really paying for what you need. If you're a freelancer, this is good news.
The Commander G3 features two expansion slots which accepts your choice of POTS, ISDN and GSM modules.
You can build a simple (and cheap) POTS or ISDN codec or combine codec modules, mixing and audio routing to create a powerful studio environment in the field.
You can choose from Mono, Dual Mono and Stereo profiles over both POTS and ISDN. Deliver up to 15kHz over each POTS channel and up to 20kHz over ISDN.
Commander delivers between 7.5kHz and 15kHz audio over GSM wireless links. Use the optional 11x6 software audio Router to customize off-air communications and simultaneous program channels.
Control your local codec or the remote codec at the touch of a button and send non-technical people into the field with total confidence. Tieline's European dealership is in the Netherlands.
What are other people using? I wish these units would also include Skype as a possibility. The audio quality from Skype is just brilliant!
