Orban announced the immediate availability of Opticodec-PC, an MPEG-4 aacPlus™ encoding software that provides high-quality streaming audio. The software lets streaming providers supply content encoded with the Coding Technologies aacPlus codec; broadcast streams encoded with Opticodec-PC can be experienced through the new RealPlayer 10 and can automatically list themselves on www.opticodec.net, an upcoming new directory service for Opticodec-PC streams.

Orban’s Optimod-PC 1100, a professional PCI sound card designed for streaming media, provides “genuine radio” audio processing for Internet broadcasters. With three onboard DSPs providing equalization, AGC, multiband compression and look-ahead limiting, Optimod-PC 1100, when combined with aacPlus encoding technology, delivers a polished and produced stream.

Opticodec-PC is available for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP and supplies streams compatible with the free Darwin Streaming Server, which is available for multiple platforms including Linux, Windows and Macintosh. Opticodec-PC is available in two versions: LE and PE. Opticodec-PC LE is compatible with all quality sound cards and encodes a single stream at bit rates between 8 and 32 kbps. Opticodec-PC PE is offered solely in a premium package coupled with an Optimod-PC and can encode multiple simultaneous streams at bit rates from 8 to 320 kbps. Both products are available immediately to beta customers.

Opticodec-PC LE retails for $99. The Opticodec-PC PE has a suggested retail price of $495 or with an Optimod-PC sound card for $1,995.
