Operational benefits

The Scoop5 S codec allows the bi-directional transmission of one or two audio signals over various network interfaces. 

Scoop5 S works reliably in every environment, be it studio, control room or OB van.

Scoop5 S is N/ACIP compatible and can be configured and controlled easily via its internal website. It is also possible to control Scoop5 S via codec management software, such as Scoop Manager.

A large selection of algorithms is available, including G722, MPEG Layer II, AAC, OPUS and cellular phone calls in HD Voice quality.

When receiving an ISDN call, the 5AS 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 cuts.

"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.


Scoop5 S comes with IP over Ethernet and leased lines. Alternative transmission modes are available as options: ISDN, POTS and cellular 3G/4G-LTE with HD Voice for high quality transmission.



Remote access : Access and control via Internet - Optional

With the new AETA Remote Access feature, you can now control all the parameters of your codecs remotely and in real time via the Internet, including 4G mobile networks.

WARNING: To get this new feature, it is necessary to install a recent version of the software (V1.09 minimum), and to subscribe to the Remote Access option. (for further informations, please contact us or your local distributor)

Double mono codec option

With the double mono codec option, Scoop5 S-IP now have the ability to function as two mono AoIP codecs, each with its own SIP registration.

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.
