imgMontbonnot, France (September 10, 2013)—Voice of Vietnam, the national radio broadcaster in Vietnam, is using Digigram's PYKO IP-based network audio terminals to make daily radio broadcasts and on-demand content from Vietnam available to listeners worldwide.

Supplied and installed by the Vietnam regional office of Global Broadcast Supply Pte Ltd. (GBS), Digigram's master distributor for Southeast Asia, the PYKO-in systems convert 70 audio feeds from around the country into audio-over-IP streams that are transmitted for centralized processing and streaming via the Voice of Vietnam website.

Voice of Vietnam is using 70 PYKO-in terminals to convert and compress audio inputs from 63 radio channels from various provinces and cities, as well as seven Voice of Vietnam channels, for transmission as IP audio streams over leased lines to a central facility, where audio is processed by a Wowza streaming server for Internet-based delivery on the broadcaster's website. More than four million Vietnamese live overseas in about 100 countries, and now they have access to daily radio from all areas of their homeland.
