Arlington, VA (April 25, 2007)–Digigram has introduced the Visiblu audio processing and networking middleware networked audio operating system. The Visiblu standards-based software services framework unifies the EtherSound Ethernet protocol with IP audio streams in an engine that runs under both Windows and Linux.
Visiblu was developed to allow audio solution providers to develop IT-based audio and data routing, transport, encoding and processing systems across local and wide area networks. The system is open to Digigram sound cards as well as DirectSound, ASIO and ALSA compatible hardware. Visiblu uses a graph-style application programming interface for remote management of distributed audio processing resources and IP audio streams, while its interoperability principles allow solutions from varied vendors to be combined into a coherent system, giving integrated system control from a single point.
The operating system includes software-based multi-cast and uni-cast IP stream creation, management and mixing for applications such as wide area audio distribution, messaging, multi-zone playback and remote system control.
