Product Overview

Best Little Black Box Money Can Buy

From the manufacturer that built the BRIC-Link and BRIC-Link II and with over 10,000 BRIC-Link IP audio codecs in circulation around the globe, we are proud to present the latest model in our popular IP audio codec line – BRIC-Link III.

Perfect for home studios, stadiums, and studio-to-transmitter links, this Comrex codec packs a powerful punch as a cost-effective, rock-solid, point-to-point IP audio solution that you can trust to do its job. It’s the “set-it-and-forget-it box” that’s beautifully boring – in the best way possible.

Now with a new, more powerful processor for improved performance and enhanced front panel for easy contact closure firing and auto-connects.

Accessories

NEW! Gagl

The perfect way to get more out of your codec. 

Gagl is a cloud-based remote contribution service that allows up to five users to send and receive audio from their smartphones or laptops. That audio is Gagl’d (if more than one user), and delivered to a Comrex IP codec (like BRIC-Link III). 

Whether you’re running a morning show, sports program, or news segment with multiple contributors, Gagl is a great way to get everyone on the air regardless of location or background.

More on Gagl

Gagl is now available! Sign up directly on our website by visiting the Gagl web page.

Gagl subscriptions are $35.00 USD per month (or save $70.00 on a Gagl annual subscription with a code from a Comrex audio dealer or from us directly).

Free 14-day trial available with all new subscriptions.

SwitchBoard

SwitchBoard is a feature that allows users to bypass common IP networking snags (like private LANs and firewalls) by routing data through a private server maintained by Comrex, making connections between your IP codecs even easier.

More on SwitchBoard

SwitchBoard is available for BRIC-Link codecs through the one-time purchase of a license key per codec. Contact a Comrex audio dealer to purchase. SwitchBoard is able to be pre-installed on your new BRIC-Link III by Comrex when it drop ships from our facility in Massachusetts or purchased at a later date (license emailed for self-install).

Fleet Commander

Fleet Commander is a Windows-based application for controlling multiple Comrex IP audio codecs simultaneously. Rather than logging into each codec individually and juggling a desktop full of tabs, Fleet Commander puts you in control of your codec fleet through one unified interface.

This easy-to-use tool contains all of the functionality of the web-based interface plus a few extra features like active metering and the ability to copy peers and profiles between codecs, making it a MUST-have for busy broadcast engineers.

More on Fleet Commander

Fleet Commander is available as a one-time purchase of a license key per computer. Contact a Comrex audio dealer to purchase a Fleet Commander license today.

Connect Modems

The Comrex Connect Modem is designed to support the unique needs of remote broadcasters. A high-powered, industrial strength 4G/LTE modem outfitted with a high-gain antenna, the Connect Modem is more powerful than most USB data modems available on the market, to handle the heavy data load of IP broadcast.

Note: The Connect Modem can ONLY be utilized as a backup network (i.e. cannot be the primary) when used in BRIC-Link III’s HotSwap mode.

More on Connect Modems

Contact a Comrex audio dealer to purchase a Connect Modem and be sure to specify which variety: US (for use with Verizon or AT&T networks), International (for use outside the United States) or CJ (for use in China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and Brazil). No Connect Modem mounting hardware needed for use with BRIC-Link III.
