UMAC-C is a compact Audio over IP module that can be used in various applications, therefore it is called “Universal Multifunctional Audio Codec”. It is a small printed circuit board (100 x 115 mm) with micro controller/fieldprogrammable gate array/digital signal processor.
The UMAC basic module performs flexible, software programmable audio coding and signal management. It respects the EBU N/ACIP standards.
The module is mounted onto UMAC-C modules to realise stand alone Audio over IP codecs.
The UMAC-C modules are stand alone, autonomous audio over IP codecs. They are 4 HU modules similar to the COMBIMUX interface modules that are in operation by thousands in 2 Mbps contribution and distribution networks. The UMAC-C modules use the UMAC Basic Module to perform the codec and transmission functions.
UMAC-C carries all external connectors on its front panel: Two female XLR connectors for the audio input and two male XLR connectors for the audio output. The interfaces can be set by software for analogue or AES/EBU audio signals. The transmitted and received audio signals can be monitored on two separate 3 mm jack connectors with individual volume control by potentiometers.
