Tieline Genie Distribution IP Audio Codec with Wheatnet-IP

Genie Distribution with WheatNet-IP


*This version includes Wheatnet-IP Option

Genie Distribution with WheatNet-IP is designed to interface with the WheatNet-IP Environment and distribute up to 3 stereo or 6 mono audio channels between WheatNet-IP studios over external IP networks like the internet.

Genie Distribution is the world's most powerful DSP-based IP audio codec for multipoint audio distribution over a wide range of wired and wireless IP networks.

Designed for the latest digital IP broadcast networks, Genie Distribution is the most feature-packed audio distribution codec with multiple levels of power, audio and network redundancy.

Genie Distribution delivers superior quality audio over IP (AoIP) on LANs, WANs, the internet, satellite IP, 3G, 4G, Wi-MAX and Wi-Fi. It is specifically designed for continuous operation over mission critical audio paths throughout broadcast IP networks. It is ideal for: Stereo IP audio distribution to up to 50 individual multi-unicast end-points. Stereo Studio-to-Transmitter Links (STLs) to multiple endpoints. IP multicasting to unlimited endpoints over compatible IP networks. Distributing up to 6 channels of high quality audio between two codecs.

Genie Distribution is capable of 24bit 96kHz low latency linear PCM audio, delivering unsurpassed sonic clarity. The codec also features a full complement of professional algorithms including the low delay and cascade-resilient E-apt-X algorithm, as well as the popular LC-AAC, HE-AAC v1 and v2, Opus, MPEG Layer II, Tieline Music and MusicPLUS, G.722 and G.711 algorithms. Asymmetric encoding and decoding lets you send high quality audio in one direction and save on data by sending low bandwidth program on the return channel.

Genie Distribution features dual Gigabit Ethernet ports (10/100/1000), dual redundant power supplies, audio silence detection and IP network backup solutions to ensure you’re always on the air. Automated network failure detection provides switching to a backup IP LAN connection.

Automatic silence detection can fail over to an alternative audio input using the optional input expansion card, or playback MP2 or MP3 audio files from a thumb-drive drive attached to Genie's USB Host port.
