NAB 2018 is over and Comrex introduced four new products! One of them is a new codec app. We’ve been pointing folks to Linphone for years, and it’s great and free, but we often hear it’s too complex for non-techies to set up and use. Enter FieldTap!
Under the hood, FieldTap is Linphone. Go open source software! But it’s been optimized for using with codecs the following ways:
* “broadcasty” interface with mic level meter
* stand-alone contact list (no need to share with phone’s main contacts)
* No SIP registration required (and no annoying notices when not registered)
* accepts IP addresses, SIP URIs, and (when registered) phone numbers
*Simplified codec selection (Opus, G.722, G.711)
*Free and available on iOS and Android
*Works with Comrex ACCESS, BRIC-Link, STAC-VIP, VH2, and Earshot IFB* products
FieldTap is a breeze to use and sounds great. iOS will be up in a couple of weeks and Android coming late Spring 2018. Look for it and give it a spin.
