Source-Connect eliminates the need for expensive ISDN lines, hardware, subscription fees and minute-by-minute line charges, enabling affordable high-quality connections between studios, voiceover talent and musicians. Incorporating a high-quality AAC codec, Source-Connect requires a minimum upload and download bandwidth of 300kbs and allows for communications at bit rates up to 160kbs.
Unlike ISDN, which requires complex setup and often, assistance from the machine room, Source-Connect appears right in the Pro Tools session. A simple selection from the user-defined contact list initiates a connection. Michael Coyle of Chicago Recording Company, after testing Source-Connect in his home and studio, remarked, "One surprising benefit of Source-Connect versus ISDN dialups is how fast you can connect and disconnect. It's nearly instantaneous—so fast I wasn't even sure it happened."
Source-Connect is available for immediate download and is priced at $1,495.00. For more information, visit their web site at www.source-elements.com.
