CallMe-T is a small-size, low-cost IP Audio Codec supporting broadcast-quality Opus/G.722 audio coding algorithms with balanced stereo audio inputs and outputs on ¼” Jacks plus RJ45 Ethernet connectivity, now with USB Audio Interface. It is housed in a 108mm x 103mm x 44mm enclosure for table-top use whilst for larger installations, 4 can be mounted side-by-side in 1-U. CallMe-T (as in “ET – phone home”) was originally designed as a low-cost hardware back-end for CallMe Click-and-Connect but as a result of customer requests for an add-on for ISDN Mixers to allow their use over IP. There are now two versions: CallMe-TS designed for standalone Studio use with remote control via its web interface and CallMe-TR designed for Remote use which has dedicated “Quick Dial” buttons to make and disconnect calls to other codecs – in addition to the web interface.
CallMe-TS Studio Codec has been designed as a hardware back-end for CallMe Click-and-Connect™ – Vortex’s internet codec service which lets guests and reporters send high-quality low-delay audio back to the studio without the need for them to have their own IP codec or download special software. Apart from CallMe-TS, CallMe Click-and-Connect™ is of course compatible with most IP Audio Codecs too. CallMe-TS has balanced stereo inputs and outputs on ¼” Jacks plus RJ45 Ethernet connectivity, now with USB Audio Interface.
CallMe-TR is housed in the same small desktop enclosure as the CallMe-TS Studio Codec but additionally has four “Call” buttons on the front panel that provide eight “Quick Dial” connections – 4x single-button Analogue to Digital and 4x shifted buttons A-to-D and a single “Drop” button to disconnect. It has been designed as a simple, reliable IP Audio Codec that can work alongside most ISDN mixers, allowing live 2-way transmission using IP.
