Since our incorporation in 1961, Comrex has been making use of the latest technology to find solutions to address the special needs of broadcasters. We have a fifty-year tradition of providing a practical answer to a universal broadcast need – transmitting high-quality media into the studio from virtually anywhere, economically, at a moment’s notice.
From the introduction of the Frequency Extender to ISDN codecs in the early 1990s and POTS codecs in the mid-1990s, Comrex has been a technology leader for decades. We launched our complete line-up of digital hybrids, including our STAC call management system, in 2004, putting our customers in control of their talk shows and call-ins with excellent sound. In 2007, we introduced BRIC (Broadcast Reliable Internet Codec) technology, forging a new path into remote broadcasting over IP. Since then, we’ve refined BRIC technology as the IP landscape has developed, creating CrossLock technology and developing codecs to transmit real-time video as well as audio.
As methods of audio and video transmission evolve, Comrex strives to develop technology that makes it possible for creative and engaging programming from more unique locations.
