SKU: PIPA C211 Category:


Baudion PIPA C211-DDC is a fully featured compact and efficient IP Stereo audio codec suitable for STL, Outside Broadcasts and Fly Away uses. Its small form factor and low power requirements alongside Dual 12v DC power supplies making PIPA C211-DDC ideal for vehicles and other space restrictive installations. Optional “Dual Side-By-Side” giving 2 units in 1U, mounting is available.

This latest generation IP audio codec, based on a resilient DSP platform for 24/7/365 operation, offers a wide range of audio coding algorithms as standard, including Enhanced apt-X®, featuring dual IP ports for separate control/monitoring and audio/data traffic (available on both ports as well) alongside dual redundant power supplies enhancing service availability of your content, whilst being extremely competitively priced.

With in-built silence detection for both audio In and audio Out and integral SD card slot you can be assured that the effect of any programme failures or circuit outages can be minimised as local audio can be automatically inserted into the PIPA C211-DDC output audio stream under user configurable alarm conditions.

Payload agnostic IP forwarding which can be configured as Decode and Forward of audio, Forward only and Decode and Forward of data allowing for increased redundancy options in a network.

Encoded audio and data can be either Unicast, Multicast or multiple EBU N/ACIP compliant Unicasts can be streamed up to 10 separate destinations. Where bandwidth/data rates are restricted the included MPEG2/4 AAC HE v1/v2 and MPEG4 AAC-LC/LD/ELD audio coding algorithms get your quality audio delivered.

Analogue or AES audio outputs are presented simultaneously on XLR’s (AES via 9 way D-Type connector). Confidence enhancing front panel metering of both audio In and audio Out along with alarm indicators add to the in-service capabilities along with the browser interface for more in depth remote monitoring, control and configuration.

MPX transmission mode of the Codec accepts sample rates up to 192 kHz providing a data path of 88 kHz, with the MPX signal sampled at 192 kHz. The transmission format is always linear PCM and you can select a resolution of 16 or 24 Bit.

SureStream from WorldCast Systems is an optional addition to C211-DDC allowing the use of lower cost ADSL and public networks for network connectivity, with minimal or no additional latency associated with FEC, this along with the included powerful scripting language “ScriptEasy” allows for extremely flexible configuration.

PIPA C211-DDC with all its feature sets, redundancies, controllability and flexible portability is an extremely cost effective solution for a professional environment, with optional single or dual unit 1U rack mount.
