Digigram extends audio broadcast, IP video offerings
Extending Digigram’s range of IQOYA IP audio broadcast solutions, IQOYA *CALL/LE is an audio-over-IP (AoIP) codec for use over standard Internet connections such as DSL lines, WiFi, and 3G.
Designed for any real-time AoIP contribution application requiring end-to-end 24-bit full-duplex audio quality, this codec offers a symmetric RTP mode that allows for setup of full-duplex connections over the Internet, without NAT issues or the need for SIP infrastructure.
The device offers quick profile creation for audio and network formats, as well as super-fast configuration via a Web-based interface.
IQOYA *CALL/LE also provides interoperability with Digigram IQOYA V*MOTE, V*CALL, IQOYA *MOBILE, or any third-party IP codec supporting symmetric RTP- and N/ACIP-compliant streaming formats.
Digigram’s FluidIP audio transport technology ensures a connection with management of jitter, packet loss, clock drift, QoS, and FEC.
Hardware reliability is provided by the codec’s industrial, fanless, non-PC-based design, which delivers power consumption of under 11W.
AQORD *LINK — IP Video Encoder/Decoder/Transcoder
AQORD *LINK is Digigram’s new encoder/decoder/transcoder for IP video and broadcast. Its applications include content contribution (point to point) from a live event to the studio, from one studio to another, from studio to transmitter, or delivery to a content distribution network (CDN). AQORD *LINK is intended for IPTV distribution, typically for hospitality and ISP video distribution to end-user STBs. Designed for SD/HD live streaming, the AQORD *LINK simultaneously processes two video channels per 1U/19-inch rack-mounted chassis, with a built-in storage capacity of 1TB.
AQORD *LINK delivers video at data rates from 0.5 to 20Mb/s or to IP stream or internal hard drive to or from an SDI connection using MPEG-TS encapsulation. Three Gigabit Ethernet RTP-UDP/IP ports transmit and receive streams in either unicast or multicast for broadcast, telecommunications, and contribution applications.
AQORD *LINK provides easy system management through the local HMI front panel or remotely from any Web-enabled PC or XML API. Users can start, stop, and manage up to 100 profiles remotely through the Web interface, and monitor hardware status messages on chassis cooling temperatures, fan speeds, and alarms.
CANCUN 442-Mic and CANCUN 222-Mic — Professional USB Sound Cards
CANCUN is a range of mobile USB sound cards for on-the-go audio professionals and reporters. The range offers features with an ergonomic design.
CANCUN is initially available in two models: the CANCUN 442-Mic with four inputs and outputs, and a dual input/output version, the CANCUN 222-Mic. Both offer simultaneous analog and AES I/O with 2×500 MIPS dual-core processing power.
CANCUN’s very high-quality mic preamp delivers 55 dB gain, 105 dB THD+N, and a maximum sensitivity of -60 dBu. The pro-grade specification delivers analog levels of +25 dBu maximum and guaranteed low latency of less than 4 mS on Windows and Mac OS X platforms.
A slim and durable touch panel with LED illumination houses all the required connectivity for professional use, including breakout cables and a Neutrik XLR plug for microphones, and provides a control surface. Also included is a companion software application. The software allows the user to control the sound card’s status and operational information such as gain values, driver setup, current state, peak meters, and locks.
