APT SureStream Technology is a revolutionary innovation from APT that enables broadcasters to use inexpensive IP links and still maintain professional broadcast-grade audio quality and reliability. It delivers the audio quality and reliability you expect from a T1/E1 link at a fraction of the associated cost.
APT SureStream Technology also offers the added benefit of «Always-On Redundancy». With APT SureStream technology, you can save thousands on your audio transport bills and still offer your listeners the highest quality sound.
At a basic level, SureStream is based on Redundant Streaming technology but SureStream offers much more than just duplicate streams.
SureStream employs a number of proprietary techniques that optimize the delivery of all streams throughout the network and an advanced resequencing engine that produces one perfectly seamless, reconstructed stream from the multiple streams received. Perfect audio from an imperfect network!
SureStream works well on a single IP link for impromptu remotes or outside broadcasts but, for mission-critical studio transmitter links and audio contribution or distribution, we recommend utilizing two links from different providers to ensure optimum performance rivalling the a traditional T1 service.
"SureStream technology has made possible something that was conventionally assumed to be impossible: having a high quality, real-time audio link over the open Internet."
Dan Houg, Chief Engineer, Northern Community Radio, USA
“I would absolutely recommend the APT IP Codec as the new generation of audio codecs! I do not compromise on the quality I bring to the client and that is the reason I use the APT IP Codec with SureStream technology for my audio distribution. It works, it’s as simple as that!”
"Despite the poor quality of the internet connections available, the project was able to proceed with high quality audio, very workable latency and with connections that cost a fraction of what we would have spent on satellite."
John Pearce, Technology Manager, Nova Entertainment, Sydney, Australia
"since we activated SureStream, these internet issues have no impact on our broadcast audio and we don’t experience any interruptions or drop-outs "
