New York, NY (August 11, 2016)—Digigram has announced its compact, high-density, ultra-low-power IQOYA *X/LINK, a new device to integrate multiple IP audio codecs and IP audio protocols for low-latency distribution in studio-to-studio links (SSL), studio-to-transmitter links (STL), DVB radio, and web radio programs from low-latency, AES67-compatible synchronous audio-over-IP (AoIP) sources.
The unit is built on an enhanced version of Digigram’s IQOYA ARM-based platform and powered by the company’s FluidIP encoding and streaming engine, IQOYA.
*X/LINK enables streamlined encoding, decoding, and transcoding of multiple audio programs from and to AES67-compliant networks, RAVENNA networks, or Livewire networks for distribution to ACIP and other popular WAN AoIP formats.
With low power consumption (10 W) within a 1U fanless chassis, the Digigram system supports up to 10 bidirectional stereo codecs and performs multiformat encoding, enabling RTP, UDP, Icecast/Shoutcast, and MPEG-TS/IP streaming.
Via three network ports, the system allows users to physically separate AES67 streams, ACIP streams, and management traffic.
