At IBC2015 Digigram, which is celebrating its 30th birthday, will highlight its range of AES67-compliant Iqoya IP audio products. These include the upgraded Iqoya *Serv/Link multichannel IP audio codec, which the company says is designed to meet the rising demand for robust multichannel encoding and decoding capabilities in space-limited facilities and applications.
Housed in a new 1-RU design that supports up to 64 stereo channels — an industry first, says the firm — the Iqoya *Serv/Link is a more compact and more powerful single-box AoIP solution for establishing multichannel studio-to-transmitter links, multichannel studio-to-studio links, and multiple four-wire commentary connections over IP, as well as the delivery of multiple audio programs to DVB/cable operators.
On the decoding side, it enables the decoding of multiple audio programs, giving users the option of defining three decoding priorities for each program, including Icecast/Shoutcast decoding and playback of local playlists and files.
The unit is available with analog, AES/EBU, and MADI I/O configuration options; features up to 16 RS-232 ports and 16 GPIOs for auxiliary data tunneling; and offers Ravenna/AES67 connectivity. For each input, the Iqoya *Serv/Link facilitates multiformat encoding and multiprotocol streaming (RTP, UDP, HTTP, MPEG-TS SPTS, and MPTS encapsulation). Equipped to support SNMP (“set,” “get,” and “traps”), the Iqoya *Serv/Link can be managed remotely with standard supervisors.
