National radio broadcaster Voice of Vietnam is using Digigram’s PYKO IP-based network audio terminals to make daily radio broadcasts and on-demand content available to listeners.
Supplied and installed by the regional office of Southeast Asia distributor Global Broadcast Supply Pte Ltd., the PYKO-in systems convert 70 audio feeds into audio-over-IP streams that are transmitted for centralized processing and streaming via the Voice of Vietnam website.
Enabling distribution of digital audio over a shared or dedicated IP network, Digigram’s PYKO-in and PYKO-out IP audio devices offer professional solutions for audio applications, including paging, public information systems, commercial background music, broadcasting and webcasting.
According to Netia, Voice of Vietnam is using 70 PYKO-in terminals to convert and compress audio inputs from 63 radio channels from various provinces and cities, as well as seven Voice of Vietnam channels, for transmission as IP audio streams over leased lines to a central facility, where audio is processed by a Wowza streaming server for Internet-based delivery on the broadcaster’s website.
The streaming technology ultimately enables more than 4 million Vietnamese who currently live abroad to listen to radio from their native country.
