Receive SIP calls for radio and podcast interviews, with this tiny IP codec. Simply connect a USB mic or audio interface, and a pair of headphones.

The USB SIP Codec from In:Quality connects to your existing internet connection, and allows radio stations to connect with you in full studio quality, thanks to its use of the Opus codec.  It can be shipped pre-configured with your own unique sip.audio address.  Simply plug it in, and wait for a call.

The simplest way to use this device is in auto-answer mode. It’s also possible to control the device using a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI monitor, or by discovering its IP address using a nearby computer.

Included with this purchase:
USB SIP Codec ‘Zero’
Power Adaptor
12 months sip.audio subscription (click here for renewal rates – bulk discount available)

USB mic, headphones and ethernet cable required. Consider this starter kit.

For best results, choose a microphone with built-in headphone socket, volume control and privacy switch, such as the ATR2100-USB, Q2U or Yeti.  If privacy is not a concern, consider the NT-USB.

FAQs

Which radio stations can I connect with?
Find SIP enabled radio stations on our SIP Studio Map. An easy way for radio stations to call SIP codecs, is to dial the SIP address from the dial pad in ipDTL.
Can I make outbound SIP or ISDN calls?
As the name suggests, the USB SIP Codec ‘Zero’ is designed to be ‘zero configuration’.  It arrives pre-configured, and the user simply switches the microphone on and off.  Technically savvy users can access it through its IP address from a nearby computer, or attach a monitor, keyboard and mouse.  Outbound calls can be established using these methods. An additional Tel+ subscription is required for outbound ISDN calls.
Can I receive inbound ISDN calls?
There is a way to receive an ISDN call via a pre-configured on-screen quick-dial button.  ISDN numbers are assigned dynamically on demand, or you can get your own LA area ISDN number with your sip.audio subscription.  A package including a Tel subscription is required for inbound ISDN calls.
Can I connect the USB SIP Codec to the internet using wifi?
Wi-Fi or mobile broadband are the most common causes of radio interviews dropping off. To ensure reliability, our SIP Codecs connect to your broadband router using a physical cable.  Most wifi routers have ethernet sockets on the back.  You can use an extra long ethernet cable, or ‘Powerline’ adaptors where cable routing is not an option.
