The Gateway-4 supersedes and replaces the popular Merlin and Genie STL audio codecs. It supports 4 full-duplex audio channels in 1RU to expand channel density by one when compared with these codecs. The Gateway-4 provides two stereo connections, or one stereo and two mono connections, or up to 4 mono full duplex connections. The Gateway-4 also supports multiple unicasting to up to 20 endpoints and multicasting. Customers with higher channel requirements will gravitate towards the Gateway-8/16 multi-channel codec.
For larger networks, the Gateway-4 is ideal for transmitter sites, remote trucks or rack-mounted remote kits. For affiliates and smaller stations it can be used to transport studio-to-studio links, or a stereo studio-to-transmitter link signal plus another stereo connection, or dual mono connections for remotes.
