Orban Opticodec 7600


The Opticodec 7600 has been designed and engineered by the German Engineering team from the ground up with the objective to serve the broadcasters reliably 24/7/365 under all conditions. They have succeeded with their goal, Broadcasters and Telkom providers across the world are broadcasting without fail thanks to the Opticodec 7600.


-Multifunctional Keypad

-Customizable Direct Dial Keys for algorithms

-Cursor Positioning: Up, Down, Left, Right

-Numeric Keypad, Help, Redial, Quick Dial, Hang Up

-Display Contrast and Headphones Loudness Adjustment

We currently support the following algorithms: Enhanced apt-X (16/24)-Bit (optional, IP only) – MPEG 1 Layer II and III – MPEG 2 Layer II and III – Linear 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 bits – 4SB ADPCM (AETA standard) – G.711 – G.722.

The new 7600 is one of the easiest codecs to work with, whether you are using only the front panel control, or our OPTICODEC-PC remote.
