“Digigram was among the first members of the RAVENNA consortium launched by ALC NetworX in 2010 and was active in the AES67 standardisation committee. We are leveraging the expertise and experience gained to offer an expanding range of products enabled with RAVENNA/AES67 connectivity,” says Pascal Malgouyard, head of product marketing at Digigram. “Our IQOYA products are among the first IP audio codecs to offer RAVENNA and AES67 connectivity, and we look forward to highlighting the significant benefits this product line can bring to radio operations at IBC2014.”
Enabling new levels of performance and flexibility in IP audio transport, RAVENNA is an AES67-compatible open technology standard that represents a major technological advance for low-latency synchronous audio distribution over IP infrastructures. The RAVENNA/AES67-compatible IQOYA solutions being shown at IBC2014 allow users to get audio programs directly from an in-studio RAVENNA network and subsequently encode and stream them over IP to transmitter sites via a WAN in compliance with EBU ACIP (Tech 3326). Users likewise can decode EBU ACIP streams from a WAN to their in-studio RAVENNA network.
For more than 25 years, Digigram has been influential in pushing forward the convergence of professional audio and video with IT, offering IP-based solutions and key audio/video technologies and OEM solutions. Digigram’s IQOYA IP audio codec product range, now with RAVENNA/AES67 support, includes a series of (ridiculously-named) devices like the IQOYA *LINK, IQOYA *LINK/LE, IQOYA *SERV/LINK, and IQOYA *CALL products. These enhanced solutions will be available for demonstration during IBC2014 and available for shipping before the end of 2014.
