Perfect for live sport coverage

ScoopyFlex 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).

Rich and versatile, ScoopyFlex is designed to meet the simplest as well as the most complex needs.

The unit can mix up to 4 XLR microphone inputs and many 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 ScoopyFlex to transmit a stereo stream by mobilizing the coordination bus for mixing the right channel.

The interface is intuitive, with backlit softkeys and dedicated 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, ScoopyFlex can also be used as a commentary unit, 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, ScoopyFlex can also be used as a light mobile studio on small installations.

Multiple network interfaces
+

ScoopyFlex mainly targets IP networks, but alternative transmission modes are available as options:

 

Network / Version IP Integrated Mobile
(3G/4G/5G‑LTE/VoLTE/HD-Voice)
2nd Integrated Mobile
(3G/4G/5G‑
LTE/VoLTE/HD-Voice)
Wi-Fi AES67 
Flex Oui Option
Flex + Docking Oui Oui Option Option Ravenna –      2 canaux

 

With one or two integrated mobile modules, ScoopyFlex supports both voice (standard, HD Voice™ and VoLTE) and IP transmission over 3G / 4G / 5G 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, ScoopyFlex 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, ScoopyFlex 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.
