WiFi and Internet connections are available everywhere these days — and so is streaming audio. Already, many are using their smartphone as a 21st-century transistor radio. Soon, the connected car will make it easier than ever to listen to high-quality streamed audio on the move. These are big changes in listening habits, but don’t worry: Z/IPStream X/2 is here to help.
Z/IPStream X/2 is the third-generation streaming software from the Telos Alliance®; a new combined audio processing/streaming platform designed for broadcasters who understand that streaming audio quality and reliability are just as important as terrestrial transmission. Z/IPStream X/2 gives you the power to fine-tune your streams for clear, clean, audio output — no matter the bitrate, codec, or delivery platform.
Z/IPStream X/2 stands above the rest with Adaptive Streaming technology. With Adaptive Streaming, the connection between streaming server and listener is automatically managed, dynamically adjusting bitrate and audio quality to maintain a solid connection with the best possible audio — regardless of Wi-Fi limitations or Internet behavior. Z/IPStream X/2 supports generating multiple streams to a server simultaneously using different codecs and bitrates to support these adaptive streaming applications.
Now includes the Fraunhofer xHE-AAC (Extended High-Efficiency AAC) codec, which is designed for high-performance low-bitrate streaming and includes integrated speech-coding tools plus more efficient audio-signal coding in general. The result is low-bitrate audio streams that sound equally good on both Talk and Music content.
