Belfast, Northern Ireland - April 2006: Source Elements LLC, a leading provider of software solutions for the Pro Tools environment, has signed a licensing agreement with algorithm specialist APT to incorporate the highly-acclaimed apt-X algorithm in their plug-ins.
apt-X is highly regarded throughout the professional audio industry and is in daily use throughout the world delivering superior audio quality over countless networks. A real time digital audio data reduction system, apt-X compresses with no perceptible audible degradation and a negligible coding delay of under 2 milliseconds at 48kHz.
Source-Connect is a fully featured Pro Tools plug-in which allows broadcast-quality audio to be transmitted between remote locations. Affordable, fully duplex and high quality link-ups between Pro-Tools users can be achieved with the Source Connect plug-in over a T1, cable or DSL internet connection
Robert Marshall, co-founder of Source Elements, says: "The apt-X option will offer customers the ability to use this trusted and proven algorithm, which has a long history of successful use throughout the broadcast and film industry. Because apt-X is not based on a perceptual model but instead on an ADPCM delta-mod system, it is proven to be resilient and able to preserve the integrity of the uncompressed signal while still passing through multiple encode and decode stages. APT has a very loyal customer base, and we believe this option for Source-Connect Pro will be a welcome addition for professional recording studios."
Jon McClintock, APT’s Commercial Director, adds: "Source-Connect Pro Mac and PC users will now be able to stream the output of their Pro Tools Mix in apt-X compressed audio. We believe Source Elements are an appropriate technology partner for the apt-X algorithm and we are excited about this very significant feature being available for Pro Tools Users worldwide."
