The next generation commentary codec for commentary booth, OB-trucks and remote working. AES67 and direct studio connection
ScoopTeam is a commentary unit integrating a double mono codec for live transmission of one or two audio signals with high audio quality (up to 20 kHz bandwidth).
The unit can mix 4 XLR microphone inputs and up to 9 other audio sources on two channels. Both audio channels can be routed to a single destination (dual mono codec transmission), or two different destinations (double codec). The stereo algorithms (MPEG Layer 2, AAC, Opus) allow to use ScoopTeam to transmit a stereo stream by mobilizing the coordination bus for mixing the right channel.
The interface is intuitive, with backlit softkeys and dedicated and assignable knobs for settings and volume control. The AETA Remote Access function allows you to access the settings of the device remotely from an Internet connection.
In addition to its codec function, ScoopTeam can also be used as an intercom panel, thanks to its AES67 (Ravenna or Dante) interface and to its analog and AES audio inputs/outputs.
Thanks to its flexibility and its audio mixing and distribution capabilities, ScoopTeam can also be used as a light mobile studio on small installations.
ScoopTeam mainly targets IP networks, but alternative transmission modes are available as options:
Network / Version
|IP||ISDN||Mobile 4G by USB||Integrated Mobile (3G/4G-LTE/VoLTE / HD-Voice)||Wi-Fi via USB||AES67||Extra Audio I/O|
|Premium||Yes||Option||Yes||Option||Option||Ravenna – 2 channels||1 lines in, 1 AES in|
|Premium+||Yes||Option||Yes||Option||Option||Ravenna or Dante – 8 channels||1 line out, 1 line in, 1 line/AES in|
|Double Mobile||Yes||Option||Yes||Yes, second one as option||Option||–||1 line out, 1 line in, 1 line/AES in|
Scoopteam can connect up to 7 different IP networks
With one or two integrated mobile modules, ScoopTeam supports both voice (standard, HD Voice™ and VoLTE) and IP transmission over 3G / 4G networks. In addition to a coordination function using the mobile network, the HD™ voice (or VoLTE) will often be a good way to provide a backup link when other networks are failing.
By connecting a USB mobile dongle, ScoopTeam can also connect to a third mobile data network (3G – 4G). Convenient to double the SIM cards and perform a Double Streaming link. In IP mode, the interleaved packet duplication (FEC) technique provides a robust link.
Coming with two free factory SIP accounts on AETA SIP server, ScoopTeam also offers a “Direct RTP” mode. The “Direct RTP” mode which allows you to set up a link over an IP network without using the SIP protocol.
Download this application note to see how to use the “Direct RTP” mode.
ScoopTeam offers many coding algorithms, included as standard in the equipment. Their availability depends on the transmission mode: network used, and single / dual codec mode:
Ethernet / 3G / 4G / Wi-Fi by USB / 4G by USB
3G (HD voice) / 4G (VoLTE)
With the MyScoopTeam Windows™ application, you can control all your ScoopTeam settings, remotely and in real time over the Internet, including 4G mobile networks. MyScoopTeam is available in LAN (Local Area Access) or Remote (Remote Access via Internet) edition.
NOTE: To benefit from this feature, it is necessary to install a recent software update (V1.03 minimum) and to subscribe to the Remote Access+ option.
