The MAGIC ACip3 is a pure IP Audio Codec and provides three Ethernet interfaces which can be used for Audio-over-IP transmissions, to control the system with the Windows PC Software or to integrate it into a network management system via SNMP. MAGIC ACip3 is designed as 19" system with integrated wide area power supply and provides optionally a redundant power supply.
The system supports the G.711, G.722, ISO/MPEG Layer 2 coding algorithms and PCM 16/20/24 Bit in the standard delivery version. Opus can be also downloaded free of charge. Optionally, MAGIC ACip3 can be upgraded with Enhanced apt-X 16/24 Bit, AAC-LD/AAC-ELD and AAC-LC+V1/V2 (= HE-AAC-V2).
Two operating modes are available: the system can be used for dial-up AoIP connections according to the N/ACIP standard EBU Tech 3326 or LAN Leased Line connections. With the Secure Streaming feature, in the LAN Leased Line Mode a connection can be established via two independent IP links to ensure highest reliability. It is possible to use either one or two Ethernet interfaces for this functionality. In case that no connection at all can be established, it is also possible to play an emergency programme from an SD card.
The system encodes one Stereo programme in the standard version and can optionally be upgraded to a second Stereo programme by software activation.
The Audio Codec can be operated via the front panel with display. The operation and configuration via the MAGIC ACip3 Windows PC Software is even more comfortable. The Software allows the simulataneous monitoring, configuration and control of up to 40 Audio Codecs within the network. Individual systems can be selected for an Audio transmission. Alarms are displayed for all systems and stored in a log file.
