ENC6000 Audio Encoder

Encodes up to 100 channels. Available in an appliance, or software for bare metal server or virtual machine

Modern Architecture

Available as a stand-alone appliance, software for installation of customer-furnished server, or VM image for easy integration into customer’s hypervisor..

Scalable and Cost-effective

The number of stereo audio channels supported depends on licensing and the CPU performance of the hosting hardware (several hundred stereo channels when using a 24-core processor).

Flexible and Powerful

Multiplicity of IP Inputs (AES-67, RAVENNA, Livewire+, Icecast, MPTS) and CODECs (MPEG Layer II, MPEG-2/4 AAC-LC, HE-AAC v1/v2)


Available in three models:

  1. ENC6000 Appliance: Supports up to 100 stereo audio channels in a compact 19" 1RU design, with an optional redundant power supply.
  2. ENC6000 Server: Runs on customer-provided bare-metal computers. The number of supported stereo audio channels depends on the CPU performance (up to several hundred stereo channels with a 24-core processor).
  3. ENC6000 VM Image: Offers up to 50 stereo audio channels for virtual operation in data centers.
  • Handles various audio signal types: web radio, DVB-TS over IP, Audio over IP (Livewire+/RAVENNA/AES67), MPEG Elementary Stream, audio files, and metadata.
  •  Integrated input redundancy switches to alternative signal if signal is lost, ensuring higher service availability and lower operating costs.
  • Provides up to 100 audio encoder / decoder instances.
  • Encodes, transcodes, and decodes audio signals with various codecs, parameters, algorithms, audio levels, and bit rates.
  • Transcoder normalizes radio programs for uniform user experience across devices.
  • Encoder processes metadata from web radio streams and external UECP data (e.g., RDS) and inserts them into audio stream.
  • Generates audio output protocols for respective audio applications.
  • Creates SPTS, MPTS, and Elementary Streams for MPEG-2 TS over IP DVB applications.
  • Integrated transport stream multiplexer function generates SI tables for DVB-compliant integration.
  • Compatible with common IP-to-FM modulators and DVB end devices.
  • Monitors input signals and displays audio levels before and after encoding.
  • Uniform loudness ensures high QoS from radio consumer's perspective.
  • Offers loudness monitoring compliant with EBU R128.
  • Supports quality assurance for web radio stream delivery with monitoring functions.
  • Adapts to network needs with simple licensing concept: 1 to 100 stereo audio encoder/transcoder licenses.
  • ENC6000 Server can run on various hardware, like Intel NUC i3 (up to 20 instances).
  • Easily transfer to more powerful server hardware for increased instances.
  • ENC6000 Appliance: High-performance multi-channel audio codec system for up to 100 licenses.
  • ENC6000 VM supports cloud-based architectures, distributing licenses over multiple instances for increased system availability.
  •  Each ENC6000 instance has power reserves for ad-hoc license extensions.Delegate local control authority
