Operational benefits

The new SCOOP 5 comes with multiple network interfaces including IP, ISDN, Leased Line, POTS and cellular 2G/3G with HD-Voice for high quality transmissions. SCOOP 5 combines a major upgrade of the software platform with an ergonomically improved design. Faster, more intuitive operation, profile management and supervision via an embedded web page, a new control panel with graphic display, and an elastomere keyboard for greater comfort make SCOOP 5 the leading product in its class. When receiving an ISDN call, the interactive 5A System recognizes the mode of the remote codec and adjusts itself automatically using the best algorithm quality available. SCOOP 5 works reliably in every environment be it studio, control room or OB van. Another great advantage of Scoop 5  is its packet duplication algorithm, which prevents time dropouts.

With the "wireless" option, SCOOP 5 natively supports both voice service (and HD Voice) and IP transmission over 2G/3G/3G+ networks. By connecting a USB mobile key it can also connect to LTE/4G networks, or add a second mobile network. See our FAQ and check the supported 3G/3G+ and LTE devices.

About HD Voice

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.
