IBC2022: Aeta Audio launches Scoop6 compact codec
Aeta Audio Systems has released the Scoop6 double IP mono codec, and is taking commentary to the next level with its 5G-enabled product range, all of which was showcased at IBC 2022.
Stated Yann Vonarburg, general manager, speaking from Amsterdam: “At Aeta we’ve always been ahead in terms of mobile and we’re on the same track with 5G. All our latest products are 5G-enabled; you just need to put a SIM card in and you’re good to go.
“We’ve got our fourth generation ScoopyFlex here on the stand. It’s built to be flexible and it can take two mics so it’s good for small sports events where you only have two commentators, but for bigger events, you just put it into its docking station and you have the capability to do four commentators.”
Following in the footsteps of the Scoop5s rackmount audio codec, the new unit is more compact and allows users to combine many codecs into just one 19in rack unit, even squeezing into crowded MCRs as well as facilitating remote broadcast in OB vans, for example.
Like Scoop5s, Scoop6 supports multiple network interfaces such as two Ethernet ports as well as 4G and 5G connections, so it’s also adaptable for all types of broadcast applications.
Just half the size of a 19in rack unit, the Scoop6 codec offers redundant power supply for safety as well as any kind of audio I/Os with AES67 (Dante or Ravenna) as analogue or AES3.
“Just like we’ve upgraded Scoopy+S into Scoopy Flex, we have now modernised Scoop5s with Scoop6. Our job is to offer top-quality technology that lets users benefit from the most advanced features and versatility on the market may it be in remote connections or in the studio,” said Yann Vonarburg, general manager of Aeta Audio Systems.
