AETA ScoopFone Goes 5G
Feature-packed audio codec can connect to 5G, 4G and 3G networks
LE PLESSIS ROBINSON, France — 27 July, 2022
Audio and IP codec specialists AETA Audio Systems is excited to announce that it has added 5G capability to its ScoopFone audio codec.
The company continues to take the lead in innovation by offering a simple and safe user experience. This latest advance is designed to simplify the job of broadcasters mainly in the field, while ensuring high audio quality.
The future of wireless communications is 5G, which is 100 times faster than 4G, and will help remote reporters save valuable time on connection setups, such as network bonding, even when working in crowded surroundings.
ScoopFone5G is based on the ScoopFone4G portable audio codec, sporting the same look and feel as its predecessor, but now offering the ability to connect to 5G, 4G and 3G networks.
ScoopFone is the smallest broadcast-grade contribution device on the market. Like ScoopFone4G, its 5G successor offers high-quality audio, adjustable bit rates and HD Voice. The unit also features AETA’s latest developments like auto jitter buffer, auto bit rate OPUS and remote access, making it even easier for operators to use.
With its intuitive interface and simplified configuration, ScoopFone5G offers optimal transmission performance — a perfect balance between mobility, sound quality and functionality. It comes in a sturdy bag and offers more than five hours of autonomy with rechargeable batteries.
“In 2021 we announced the addition of 5G to our ScoopTeam unit,” said Yann Vonarburg, general manager of AETA Audio Systems. “Now, considering the commercial success of our ScoopFone, we decided it was time to upgrade this product with the most advanced communication technology available today that offers broadcast journalists the best communication experience possible.”
ScoopFone 5G will be available at the end of June 2022.
AETA Audio Systems will be exhibiting at the IBC show in Amsterdam, Sept. 9–12 in Hall 8, Stand F83.
