The Gateway 4 is a powerful DSP-based 1RU IP codec designed for live remote broadcasting applications, as well as STL or SSL links.

The Gateway 4 enables transport of multiple channels of mono or stereo audio across the Public Internet or any QoS-enabled IP network, including T1 and T3 connections and private WANs with MPLS. The Gateway 4 supports AES67, ST 2110-30, RAVENNA, NMOS, Ember+, AES3 and analog I/O as standard. The Gateway 4 streams AES67, ST 2110-30 and RAVENNA compliant digital audio between equipment from vendors supporting these standards. Plus, an optional WheatNet-IP card can be purchased. The codec supports interoperability with proprietary Dante® and Livewire+™ protocols in AES67 compatibility mode. The Gateway 4 is designed for solutions requiring up to 4 audio streaming channels with advanced redundancy features and remote configuration and control. It supports 4 full-duplex audio channels in 1RU and is backward compatible with all Tieline IP codecs. The Gateway 4 provides two stereo connections, or one stereo and two mono connections, or up to 4 mono connections.
