The new Scoop5 S comes with multiple network interfaces including IP, ISDN, Leased Line, POTS and cellular 2G/3G/4G-LTE with HD Voice for high quality transmission. Scoop5 S combines a major upgrade of the software platform with an ergonomically improved design. Scoop5 S works reliably in every environment be it studio, control room or OB van.
When receiving an ISDN call, the 5A System recognizes the mode of the remote codec and adjusts itself automatically. In IP mode, one great advantage of Scoop5 S is its packet duplication algorithm, which prevents audio dropouts. The Scoop5 S is N/ACIP compatible and can be configured and controlled easily via its internal website. A large selection of algorithms including G722, MPEG Layer II, AAC, OPUS and cellular phone calls in HD Voice quality are available.
With the "HD-4G" option, Scoop5 S natively supports both voice service (and HD Voice) and IP transmission over 2G/3G/3G+/4G networks. By connecting a USB mobile key it can also connect to a second mobile data network. See our FAQ and check the supported 3G/3G+ and LTE devices.
"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 front panel or in the “AoIP” page of the web interface.

HD Voice delivers higher quality voice transmissions by extending the frequency of range of traditional or narrowband voice calls (300 Hz to 3400 Hz) out to wideband audio ranges (50 Hz to 7000 Hz). The 7 kHz wideband sound quality allows the full signature character of the reporter’s voice to be heard, leading to greater audience involvement and loyalty.
