Operational benefits

Compact (1/3 of 19’’) and very easy to use, µScoop is a cost effective IP codec that allows you to easily and efficiently perform IP connections over wired networks (Ethernet).

Available in Analog or Digital Version, ?Scoop integrates AETA Audio Systems expertise to meet professional broadcasting requirements : wide range of coding algorithms and interoperability.

Aimed at broadcasters for outsourced contribution, µScoop  is  also  suitable   for   all   cases of long-distance AoIP communications with professional quality requirements (Sound system/Events).

µScoop is controlled via its dedicated web page. The product is detected by its MAC address when connected to Ethernet. 

AETAScan scans your LAN to look for AETA codecs and displays MAC and IP addresses.

A double click on the selected codec opens its dedicated web page, enabling the configuration and control of the codec.

 Using a SIP server greatly simplifies the setting up of a connection. Click here for further details on using a SIP server.

"Direct RTP" mode allows you to setup an audio call over an IP network without using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Please download this application note to see how to operate the codecs using the "Direct RTP" mode.

Ability to setup an audio call over an IP network in “Multicast” mode. The “Multicast” feature is available in the “Setup / Network / AoIP Parameters” menu from the “AoIP” page of the web interface.

It is also possible to control µScoop via a codec management software, such as Scoop Manager, edited by AETA Audio Systems. Click here for further details about Scoop Manager.
